Matty Sinclair asks a good question:
Why are there three taxes on your wages? There is Income Tax, Employee’s National Insurance and Employer’s National Insurance. All those taxes take part of the money that your employer pays for your services and gives it to the Government. Why don’t we just call it what it is? Income Tax.
It is really important that we don’t let the politicians get away with this ruse and keep up the pressure for simpler, fairer and more honest taxes. That is why we have teamed up with our friends at See what you mean to produce a new video that you can watch by clicking on the picture below.
If you like our new video, then please help us spread the word. If you use Facebook or Twitter then share it with your friends that way. But just sending the link to your friends and family will really help. If you just copy the link – http://youtu.be/C9ZMgG9NiUs – into an email and send it to ten people, and encourage them to do the same, you can make an enormous difference and help it go viral.
Thank you so much for your help.
While we’re there, perhaps it’s time we had a byline or even mini-manifesto at OoL. This one, the Bucko Manifesto, seems to fit the bill:
Stop trying to tax us more
Stop treating everyone like children
Stop trying to micro manage everyones lives.
And above all, fuck off. Please.
