Luvvies Refuse To Pay Tax Until Hsbc Bankers Start Paying It

Recommended Posts

Lol. They are probably Ltd company + minimal salary + dividends so pay as little tax as possible and no NI.

I agree with the sentiment that there must be a proper crackdown on bankers and tax avoidance and perhaps high profile "activists" will help but it does grate that these millionaire socialists luvvies probably already pay less tax than most of us.

Shouldn't this be.

"We pay too much tax, f**k you, we're not paying it anymore either."

People really are stupid.

The government have someone convinced people that it's fair for us ALL to have 60% of our money confiscated for their benefit.

It's genius, but wrong.

Taxes are supposed to be spent on the common good. Nothing wrong with the concept, only in the political system which produces our corrupt 'leaders'.

I am happy to pay a sensible amount of tax, I estimate this as 20%.

I currently pay ( hidden and obvious ) taxes of 60-70% per annum.

This money goes to the public sector, buying old peoples votes and the banks.

I am not happy about this.

Yup and i find the ever higher tax brackets deeply demotivating. I am turning down work now because I wonder why I should work myself into the ground to lose more and more of it. ****** it, ill just lie around instead which isn't really the way to build an economy.

If I lived in some sort of near utopia I might be ok with it but the place is a corrupt shit hole full of feeders lining there pockets off my efforts.

Pretty much my sentiments. Couple it with the highly complex ever shifting tax code - and I simply thought it wasn't worth my while working hard in my spare time as I have enough money for my own use.

I too would feel happier to earn and pay more tax if I felt it wasn't going to the likes of Rifkin, Straw, warmongering, screwing over the next generation re: housing and education etc.
