the only remaining question is where is Boris getting his money from if its not tax....

I am inclined to agree with Tonyaustin on reflection - lets charge a flat rate of 5% tax on anyone earning below 50k....I like the idea that charging a lower rate will bring in more....
*oh sorry you meant in regard to the rich guys.....
On the other hand given a binary choice between high tax and low tax - there seems to be a simple answer....because we know making decisions based upon a binary choice is by far the best way to get a good result....

Under the conservatives Peter will contribute nothing towards any of the state benefits he will no doubt benefit from in the long term (at the very minimum state pension)….in addition his house will be protected from being sold should he go into care....(so is the conservatives suggestion)….
I wonder if Peter or Jane asked about whether the waiting times at hospital are likely to go up or down, whether they will be able to access doctors appointments, what provisions their are for them if they get ill, or need a care home? Or perhaps they should ask how these areas will be improved by all 3 parties yet one seems to be asking for no more money from them.....
A poor piece of work that misses the point of general taxation....

The only growth area and 'add-on' the Revenue can charge for these days - penalties....it is time to start recharging them everytime they make an error!
I should add some individuals are plebs too, but then I bet he knows what his bonus/annual rise is as a % of gross salary .....

Zwift is apparently good....so I guess peleton are not really breaking new ground. But like running on a treadmill, nothing really beats getting outside....(accepting that busy roads etc are not particularly enticing)….that said....if you are going to pay £35/month....why not pay £50 and then you can head off to your local gym and use various equipment and not just a bike.....

I guess there is reason to still take a sceptical view, but I will say this, when your bins get emptied into a bin lorry, that lorry dumps your rubbish somewhere....it will end up on/under ground, in the air or in the sea. It doesn't simply vanish....I am no expert but this is fact! So one way or another we are trashing the place we inhabit....

of course it is also convenient for the Revenue to specify that a Return isn't required where there is no gain....they don't want to be overrun by returns....but people will still need to check that a return isn't required....

I think the only issue with your whole response is the use of the word 'loan' on your second to last paragraph.....loans are repayable....which even in its 'retrospective' nature (if I were to concede that point) would mean that the individuals should expect to repay said loan....and the fact is that no one ever expected to repay these loans....that's why the scheme works......it is that simple.....really....
