'Good citizens' to get tax cuts under Lord Goldsmith's plans

People could be given financial incentives to be good citizens by saving money on their council tax and student loans, a report to the Prime Minister has proposed. Youngsters volunteering for community work before they go to university would get help paying off their tuition fees. And a "small" council tax rebate would be available to those who help out in their local neighbourhood. The discount could be earned by organising recycling projects, helping children learn to read in schools, or setting up a residents' association. The ideas were set out by Lord Goldsmith, the former Attorney-General, in a wide-ranging review of British nationality and citizenship.

    The thin end of the wedge. What next ? Different tax bands for different occupations. A lower tax rate for politicians and civil servants?? This stinks. Badly.
