INCREASE TAXATION BURDEN ON RICHEST 10%

Comment 12th July 2010

Increase all forms of taxation on the richest 10% of individuals in the UK…..

As Adam Smith advocated "taxation in line with ability to pay"…

Increase marginal rates of direct taxation

Increase VAT on luxury goods

Increase Inheritance and CGT on transfers of over £1million

Why does this matter?

Demonstrates "fairness and responsibility"

It is fair, because the most fortunate are in the best position to pay additional taxation

It is responsible, because we need to address the budget deficit by raising revenues as well as cutting expenditure
