Gazette column: Tax works because we’re made to pay it. So tax me, please. Tax me now.

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about tax and how, if, like South Gloucestershire Council, we are asked to opt-in for paying for services, we just won’t do it. That’s why they should just tax us and be done with it – because it works.

What do you think? Let me know.

Gazette column: Charge us our taxess & be honest about it

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about South Gloucestershire’s ‘green bin charge’,  taxing by the back door and how councils – and government – would earn our respect if the were more honest.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think?  Should we be charged extra for services, but not call it tax? Should our tax charges cover everything? Should politics be more honest? Let me know.
