The ASI in predictable rant mode raised some reasonable questions about tax rates and the returns to the Treasury. However they don't address one question whcih has always intrigued me.
Why is is necessary to give more money to the already rich to encourage them to carry on working and so they don't avoid (and dodge) tax work while those on benefits supposedly need to have their money cut to achieve the same thing?
I know there is an argument too about keeping what you have earned but the argument I've set out is often made - although never in the same breath so far as I've seen.
Just for fun I'm trying a track back with this post - who knows what might happen?
