Raise taxes the friendly way!
I had a thought today. This whole recession thing, with the associated government spending cuts. Well, I've come up with an idea that could put the whole economy right with the agreement of the majority. What do you think?.................
1) Put up taxes, say income tax for a start. However much is needed to fill the spending gap, whack 'em up. Equally across the board so no income group feels better or worse.
2) Allocate an idividual number to every pound that an individual pays into the tax coffers
3) At the end of the year draw 25 numbers out of a hat (we could get a computer todo this bit) and give 25 lucky taxpayers £1 million.
4) That's it! It really is as simple as that. Obviously we could play around with the prize money, ie. 50 x £500,000 or 5 x £5million etc, but it is a great incentive to contribute more towards the running of the country.
And let's face it the biweekly pilot scheme seems to be working!
See you outside number 11!
So we all have no money apart from those who win.Yeah you would make a good Chancellor, is your name Mr Brown?
.... Osborne I'd say.
In fact the clueless halfwit would probably jump at that
well sounds no dafter than present strategy of all cuts and then keeping the system that caused the problem-lol
Or they could tax us all at 100%, then just give us the things they think we need, like a house, schooling, basic health care, food to keep us alive but not get fat, warm clothes, and an annual holiday to converted holiday parks.
Then there would be lots of money to run government and keep the economy going.
Can I patent my idea (or has someone tried it before?...............................)
How about National denial.
"What money?...we don't owe any money.....how could we possibly owe you money.....WE'RE NOT LISTENING.....LA LA LA LA LA LE LA LE LA LA."
