David Mitchell just about nails it here. We have a bad system. And one that is simply not working. I mean if it worked you’d shrug your shoulders and go, “Well it’s an imperfect system in an imperfect world – whatever gets the job done”.
But it’s not working.
There isn’t enough tax coming in to pay for what we need: hospitals, the army, roads… you name it.
So that’s a problem.
So it’s not a system that works, but it is a system that works for wealthy people who want to avoid paying tax (and legally too thanks very much).
