What do you actually reckon about VAT then

So I’m kinda against anyone disagreeing with tax unless they don’t want to use hospitals or roads, but it does benefit the rich disproportionately and punishes anyone with a slightly unhealthy lifestyle.

Would you get rid?

can’t we just liquidate all the assets of the wealthy and collectively smoke and drink ourselves to early graves (10 year long worldwide carnival) or something.

It’s a regressive tax, so yeah, get rid.

If you are going to have sales taxes, then use them as a ‘nudge’ tool to discourage behaviour (eg on fuel, alcohol, cigarettes etc)
