Fairer taxes are needed say the Lib Dems. What I find a little concerning is that their proposed local income tax would cost easterbunny and me over one thousand pounds per year more than our current council tax arrangements.

And the useless swines still wouldn't collect our rubbish.
Perhaps I'm underestimating my standing in society, but I don't think I'm earning huge amounts of cash, and living in London and paying off student debts that kind of tax hike would be unpleasent. You can understand why they talk about the details of the 50% bracket for 100k and over, obviously hits many less people.
Well, I don't know - I've just had a look at this (and do you know how difficult it is to assess when you are sub-letting from a pensioner?!?) and on the IFA site it reckons I am in the 95th percentile for earnings. I apparently earn more than 54 million people. As my pay is crap, I am utterly shocked... plus, if I earn more that 95% of the country, how the crap can I not afford a house!??!

There is something deeply fishy going on, methinks.
