Report This Is Why Millions Are Leaving Britain, Mr Blair in House prices and the economy Posted October 28, 2005 I would gladly pay more tax if it meant that the UK lost tens of thousands of greedy, self-obsessed bigots who are fearful of any progression away from an idealised 1950s English market town. Well, the third quote is about something that we all know will change for the better. The other two quotes are about taxes. If the people who want lower taxation all leave the UK, then it will obviously become a better place to live. So assuming that those who want lower taxation are likely the ones paying the most tax currently, if they all notionally happen to leave-reducing the total tax take disproportionately-the UK will "obviously become a better place to live", although the disproportionate tax shortfall will then land on everyone else and/or public services will be cut to compensate? Did you leave your other brain cell down the pub?
