A tormented man.

A simple 'tear off and return' slip on everyone's yearly TAX return. A or B.


A. I wish to receive a higher rate of TAX (50%) To help Economic Immigrants with Housing, NHS, Benefits.

B. I do not wish to receive higher rate of TAX (20-40% dependent on income)


(Benefits are calculated pre-TAX)


Choose one.

Same B, I'm wondering if any of the social minded are prepared to help out their fellow countrymen after all the abuse hurling at Hungary/Poland etc.

You'll be worse off, but you'll be helping someone much worse off.

#1 comes first. When I have excess I can help others.

This might sound like I'm a cunt(which I am), but I bust my ass to ensure my wife, my child, my family and myself have the means to have a good life. There are too many people on the planet for me to care about and financially assist them.

If I become a billionaire I'll solve thousands of peoples financial problems. Until I have the thought "I have more money than I know what to do with", I'm helping family and friends only.

Just thought about the effect of this. The middle class, wanting to help picks option A. Their overall value decreases while the rich choose B and the income gap increases
