I'm one of the lucky few to have had this lecture in person,
JFs insight into the on going social disaster of the Treasury is
enlightening

The only practical solution I can see in the short to medium term,
is the emigrate to a civilsed country.
(which seems to be now so prevalent, it now has the phrase of "White
Flight")

Such as France where they don't have a treasury telling them they can't
find the money to build important infrastructure like the Millau sky bridge

Well the poll tax has the problem that a low paid worker such as a Police
Constable, Manual worker, or teacher on about 24K (10 per hour) a year,
has to pay the same as say a Lawyer or Stocker Broker on 100K.


Since they are paying for the same services that's fair enough.


That's absolute rubbish. People on low income make greater use of local
council services. They should pay more than the rich.

Poor people rely on housing benefit for their rent. They rely on
subsidised public transport. They rely on free school meals. They rely
on state education. They rely on free prescriptions. They are more
likely to commit crimes, requiring police intervention. The cheeky
blighters then rely on HM Prison Service to look after them when they
get caught.

To be honest, it seems obvious to me that high earners should pay less
tax than the poor.

Cheers,
Luke
