The SNP's Alex Salmond ( all time winner of the most lost elections ) has decided that a flat tax is a good thing. The usual group of monetary crazies have predictably given their support, one known to us is our old friend 'rightforscotland' no show without punch eh! his logic is that 20% means £200,000 tax for a millionaire and £4,000 tax for a plumber on £20,000 there is a certain simplistic logic to this farce, particularly if you are not political. The millionaire will certainly vote for rightforscotland who will leave him with £800,000 to spend and the plumber with £16,000 - being involved in politics and as a socialist I would leave the former with less and the latter with more. I have the uncomfortable feeling though that I shouldn't have to explain this to our libertarian right wing monetarist, his philosophy is 'the devil take the hindmost' a brutal way to treat people, he's a nasty ! someone told me he claims to be twenty eight, what cruelties must have been visited on him in his childhood to produce this ?
