When taxation is so utterly ridiculous

Well, there is always then the question of how should all of the services and facilities provided by the state be paid for? Only other way I can see is to increase the tax on purchases (VAT, businesses). Either way, the money has to come from somewhere.

I don't like paying 40% tax, but I don't think it's unreasonable.

BJs (I think it was) plans to reduce taxes for the super rich is wrong - it would be much better to reduce the taxes at the bottom end (moving more people out of taxation), as this would benefit everyone to some extent.

It is also not right for the majority of the wealth to be held by a very small number of people - not that I support communism or other "lefty" principles.
