Tax used be paid to the government to run the country
like repair the roads ,run the gas /electric /water ect ect
then they got into selling everything off to the private sector ,and the private sector has to bid for what ever part they wanted and we still get taxed for it ,
Its about time councils got taxed on the profits that they make like out of the parking scandals ,building permissions ,permits ect ect perhaps then we could a country fit to live in instead of boot sale Britain, where have cardboard cut outs of police men and cardboard cut police cars !

Take a look at the royals and the list of charities they have their fingers in and they dont pay any taxes ,they cant be taxed on the millions the state gives them as unearned income , if you added up all of the tax free money in these organisations its enough to refloat the country in luxury !

The trend to have a charity /trust business has boomed since the 50s and the latest wheeze is a green charity ,one example is forests of fast growing trees where your investment is tax free , green tax ducts = the list is endless , but its the poor that have to make up the lost tax revenues !

The working classes pay more in taxes than the wealthiest 10%, both in relative amounts (VASTLY more) and actual amounts. Why do the working classes get so little for their money? Why are they being blamed for deficits ? Why is their tax money wasted on covering the speculative losses of filthy rich finance sector gamblers and for military spending that less than 25 % of the people want ?
