Today Your Tax Serfdom is Over for this Year

According to the annual calculations made by the Adam Smith Institute, today is Tax Freedom Day:

that wonderful point in the year when the average taxpayer has finally earned enough to cover all their taxes and at last can start earning for themselves.

It may come as a shock that the average UK resident has spent the last 155 days working solely to support government expenditures, but that is the reality of it. More than two-fifths of an average earner’s wages is taken from them in taxes.

Medieval serfs were forced to work sometimes up to 40 days in the fields for their baronial tyrants. Progress means that taxpayers now work for 155 days to pay tribute to the state. It amazes Guido that slaves of yore effectively consented to their chains, when they so greatly out-numbered their slave masters or that millions of Indians accepted imperial rule by a few thousand British soldiers. How many tax bureaucrats are there?

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
