I don't normally like bringing politics into my blog because it is such a touchy subject.
The papers are screaming today about how the wealthy people who fall into this government 's punitive 50p tax bracket are looking at tax avoidance schemes.
Crikey - really?
I thought they would all roll over and happily give away half their earnings without so much as a murmur.
Having to give half your wages away each month in tax is hardly an incentive to aspire to a higher level is it? Or even stay in this country.
What the politicians don't seem to realise is that there is always going to be an unfair distribution of wealth in this country - taxing people to the hilt is not the answer as ultimately the money they spend will benefit the poorer population at some point - failing that it will end up in the politician's back pockets.
There has to be a better policy out there that finds some common ground somewhere along the way.
This is such a short sighted policy and so badly thought out - it is bound to all end in tears.
In the meantime it is the people on average and lower incomes that suffer the most.
