40% tax is charity
40% tax is tax. it keeps MPs in jobs, soldiers in flak jackets and kids in schools. It has nothing to do with charity in any respect whatsoever. Except, as I have said, in your own mind.
I'm also pretty sure it has only the most tenuous link with the subject of this thread.
Just wanted to comment on the suggestion that the tax we pay has nothing to do with charity in any respect. Some charities services are commissioned by either NHS or Local Authorities, and thus paid for by our taxes.
