To cite tax rises as a percentage of tax paid rather than the impact as a percentage of salary is intentionally misleading and transparently so.<br /><br />Take your examples, and let's state the impact as %age of salary;<br /><br />£90 on £20k = 0.02%<br /><br />£190 on £30k = 0.63%<br /><br />£480 on £59k = 0.61%<br /><br />£1,890 on £200k = 0.95%<br /><br />You don't have to be an analytical genius to see that this a clearly progressive tax that asks the better off to shoulder the burden.<br /><br />I'll be interested to see if you have the intellectual integrity to publish this commentKevin Haguehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14587343060415859159noreply@blogger.com
