Great. Loads of my clients earn over 150k so thats saving me a head ache. Now if he will only reverse this stupid fcuking pensions limitations for people earning over 150K as well that would be nice.

I for one, think that the tax rate inflicted on the higher earners is by far the most unfair tax going.

Why should someone who has got themselves into a great job, that pays a fantastic wage, have to suffer the cost of upto 50% tax on their earnings? just because they have the said job?


A set tax for all would be fairer, why should the higher earners, subsidise the lower earners?
Just as why should those of us who pay the CSA subsidise those who dont?



I am a low earner by comparison, but I dont think its fair all the same.

Because he wants some of their money for himself, without working for it. Generation X, owed a fcuking living. :x

inheritance tax cut to the top 2% most going to the top 3000 estates
cut 50% tax rate hitting the hard working middle classes "err really the top 1% of earners in the uk"
cut taxes on pensions another £3.2 billion to the top 1%

ao were are ecomically fucked and his answer give tax cuts to the rich and his missus kunt :x
IHT now only paid by millionaires. Thousands of people taken out of IHT altogether.

50% tax rate will not actually produce any money. The people who earn enough to pay it, earn enough to pay people to ensure they don't pay it.

Don't know enough about your pensions snippet to comment.

So the 150k+ a year 50% tax rate is not much when a Cabinet Minister is on £149K a year by the labour Goverment is not a tax dodge then?

All MP's should pay the highest tax rate on 100% of their income, let's see how keen they are on tax rises then.

Nope they're just honest to goodness tax paying members of society, that and their allowances are tax fee.

If everyone was on the same rate then people who earn more would obviously still be paying more!!.

As the standard of education has dropped so has the mathamatical ability of the muppits in charge.

What's a good reason for having different percentages of personal tax rates ??????????? - it only results in high earners fiddling their expenses.

FFS, you only pay 50 per cent on that chunk of your income that goes over £100K.
With banded tax, only earnings above the threshold are taxed at the higher rate, so if the government introduced a 90 per cent rate on incomes above 250,000, someone earning 255,000 would only pay the 90 per cent on 5,000, as opposed to 40 per cent on 5,000. That's a difference of £2,275 - less than one per cent of their gross income. Extortionate, eh?
Oh, sorry, I forgot - Arrse is actually "let's lick Cameron's Arrse".
Anyway, it's nice to see the turkeys lining up to vote for Christmas. And talking of turkeys, what grips me is all those cnuts who repeatedly promised that they'd leave the UK if Labour won - Lloyd-Webber, Paul Daniels and the like. Why the f*ck are they still here?

Thanks for that, none of us knew how the tax system worked.

They are only still here because the die has not yet been cast.

If you think those that earn in the higher echelons will stay if tax rates reach such levels you are sadly mistaken, think back to the 1970's or google it if you are too young to remember.

It's not about the 2,275 extra, its the unfairness of being penalised for doing well that rankles. In case you didn't know, 50% of zero is still zero, think about it!!

Nope, you get taxed an extra 100 quid a year to pay for it. :twisted:

You cannot seriously quote the so-called independent - was this not just bought by an ex-KGB agent, who used his place in the socialist Utopia to make himself a $3.1 Billion dollar fortune and 358th in the Forbes Rich list?

Quite frankly, in an ordinary decent and caring society, there would be camps for Indy readers.

Probably a good idea not to post when you're "tired and emotional". It just makes you look a teeny bit silly.

You cut tax on the top earners, taking money away from the government (and bloated public sector) and putting it back in the hands of the individual.

The individual then has more disposable income to spend on stuff like cars, conservatories, booze, clothes.

This generates wealth for the people who make,distribute and sell these things, they take on more employees.

You then have a healthy functioning economy where those who work for a living can have social mobility, this is what socialist just don't get.

They're so obsessed with falsely making everyone equal that everyone loses because no-one generates wealth.

There, explained it for you.

The mindset displayed above is what's wrong with socialism. No thought is given to increasing the overall economic pot, it's all about slicing up what's there at the moment, handing it to the various state clients, and fcuk the future.

Your money is not considered yours: it's the government's (which in its wisdom will spend on worthy projects), and you're allowed to keep some - which is then stung again at the petrol pumps, supermarket checkout, pub, bank account, pension etc etc etc.

Soaking the "rich" isn't going to get this country out of the vast economic hole it's in, there isn't nearly enough money in it. It's just petty, pathetic, impotent spitefulness.

As an aside, notice that most people advocating the socialist approach are either so rich themselves they'll not notice, sponging politicians who aren't slow at pocketing tax-free freebies and expenses, or envy-ridden curtain-twitching useful fools.
