What do you actually reckon about VAT then


#1

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?


#2

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.


#3

aight man you take on police. you take on apple. fine. but VAT? not the sacred cow!


#4

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)


#5

one of my favourite taxes, for sure!


#6

what’s your least favourite?


#7

only the rich may drink!


#8
