Inequality in `Income Taxes'

Inequality is perceived as class or race bias.
However an analysis shows that the root cause is greed and corruption, in hierarchies of politics, law, finance and education.

These tax pages catalog UK's inequality problems in political finance (and `culture').
Laworjustice page does the same for policing and courts, where gender and age biases are subsets.  Schools pages similarly expose education biases.  Morals page examines the same problems - ever present, though covert in UK - in hierarchies of churches.

Appendix I

Direct unfairness

LOW INCOME = HIGH TAXES
HIGH INCOME = LOW TAXES



As the graph above shows, the higher the income the less the rich need to pay in direct tax costs.

The negative rate (dipping below the zero line) means we are paying for very rich people's accountancy costs, administration and security costs (i.e. Bank of England protection, physical policing, rights to hold property, and State administration of these rights), while in most cases they take large amounts from the State - from us, who pay all `real taxes'.

The amounts they take from us include :-

subsidies for simply owning large estates; ref-01

subsidies for owning cars and for transport costs - subsidies so high they make a profit from travel, which ordinary people pay dearly for; ref-02

subsidies for entertainment for the rich, masquerading as `culture'. These State maintained `Arts' are sterile & ignorant, especially those in the BBC's puerile broadcasts - meant for the stupid rich, ref-03 see below, and the subsidies for elite education - denied to the poor. ref10 edu1

In reality - `Culture is what folk do when they're not working' and `Culture is what people do when no-one is watching';  which means that the leisured classes - mostly posers - have no real culture, hence the vacuous (& vicious) BBC.

N.B. British Prime Ministers have consistently lied about real rates of taxes on incomes, which for ordinary and poor people are nearly doubled by the addition of National Insurance - two further taxes, one masquerading as an employer's contribution but which really is taken from the wage - the payroll cost.

All these taxes are taken as a percentage of real earnings - but not from the rich.  This was finally admitted (on the record) by John Major in 1992.

The 'establishment' (including MPs) only pay a special tiny rate of National Insurance, as they do with Property Tax (see III and IV), and most, thanks to special 'allowances' and 'per diems', escape net direct taxation altogether.


Note - "Aida" in Rome is a great evening, attended and appreciated by truck drivers and millionaires;  in London it is dead, like the minds of the audience.

In UK, 'ordinary' people's entertainment is treated as 'commercial'; so we must pay the cost + the profit + local taxes + national taxes; that is, we must pay FOUR times over for our entertainment, and so we value it.

But UK's rich refuse to pay even ONCE, which is why their `culture' is sterile and without an ethos - except for greed.

'National Insurance' - Official lies

Senior civil-servants & politicians use official lies to increase the income taxes of working people - but exempt themselves & the rich from paying

Lie #1, "National" - the two N.I. taxes are paid in full only by the working middle- and lower-incomed - via payroll taxation.  The rich (& the politicians) do not pay.

Lie #2, "Insurance" - The two NI taxes are taken as a percentage of payroll earnings.  They are not "insurance premiums".

Lie #3, "Employee's Contribution" - is taken as a percentage - from the gross payroll earnings of the employee - compulsorily.

Lie #4 "Employer's Contribution" - is taken as a percentage - from the gross payroll earnings of the employee - compulsorily.
Therefore both #3 & #4 are taxes taken from the employee's payroll earnings.

Lie #5 : "NI contributions" of the rich (& politicians) - are a tiny 'token' payment - see below


From the graph below you see majority of working people (90% - 95% of UK earns less than £40,000) are paying 22% extra in NI tax - so they've got to pay a total of 44% - 54% real Income Tax on GROSS INCOME! (all they earn - no deductions allowed).

That's much, much more than the rich, who pay only 40% on NET INCOME - after they've fiddled all their "expenses", travel, accountancy, wives' & children's investments etc - leaving the rich paying about 10% tax - if that!

Therefore the rich do not pay net-taxation at all.  Therefore they, MPs, magistrates, judges, police-chiefs, as well as the city fraudsters, are all stealing - by force of `law' - from those poorer than themselves.  I.e - the UK's rich & the power-elite are parasites and thieves.

1995 - Finally an English prime-minister admits

a) NI taxes are really part of Income Tax.

b) "Income Tax" is therefore unfair & regressive.



NI taxes taken


"employees" + "employers" NI taxes are taken in full only from earnings below £30,000 pa.

above £30,000 the "employee" sum is "frozen" - so much richer folk pay only tiny percentages

we've dropped "employer" tax after £30,000
('cos corrupt I.R. usually allows the rich or the powerful to pretend to be "self-employed" or "contracted" - most noticeably if in Press & BBC - so no "employer" tax is taken from their high payroll earnings).

2007 - That `threshold' is now at £35,000 pa.

Politician Liars

About two decades ago an English Prime Minister, M. Thatcher, claimed that "Britain has a fair Income Tax System."

She, in full knowledge, was lying:  covering-up the NI hidden taxes, lie-01  and the huge `allowances' & `subsidies' given to the rich (& to politicians). lie-02 & lie-03 & lie-04

One of her ministers - C. Parkinson - later claimed that the UK's only property-tax - Council Tax lie-06  - was a "fair property-tax".

He, in full knowledge, was lying. lie-07


[Oct. 2003 a Liberal Democrat MP revealed the corruption of the Council Tax: it asks only half-a-day's earnings from Prime Minister Tony Blair / Gordon Brown, but rips-off two months income from young couples, and already poor pensioners who've paid very high taxes all their lives.]

Thatcher's immediate successor as Prime Minister was J. Major who, in full knowledge, also lied about taxes, lie-08  and continued to lie about Income Tax, once in a letter lie-09  to `Perceptions' editor (me). lie-10
Only much later lie-11  was he forced to admit that `National Insurance' (a penal double-tax for working folk) lie-01  is an additional, highly regressive Income Tax - because the rich (i.e. top BBC presenters) don't pay it.

2006 - `New Labour' continues the Big Lie (28 Dec '06 - BBC Radio 4 `World at One' interview);  the BBC interviewer smoothly accepted the claim of Minister Hazel Blears, that - "we have a progressive tax system" - without a single question.
Although they both knew* it was a blatant lie - see below
(here's earlier proof 1 & proof 2 - and we should note those are significant understatements).


All three types of taxation in UK - on earnings, spending, property - are highly regressive: taking much more from ordinary folk than from the rich.

The reality is that Minister Blears pays less than a quarter of the income tax rate, less than a tenth of the real VAT costs, and less than a hundredth of the council tax rates that poorer people (~99%+ of the population) are forced to pay.
She and those even richer, are not paying any net tax burden.  Like ticks & lice, they feed off _our_ wages and taxes.  Even school-kids, pensioners and the unemployed pay much higher tax-burdens than our corrupt politicos. lie-11A & lie-11B

The parasite Blears is a liar, thief and pervert. lie-12 & lie-12A & lie-12B  Exactly as was/is Thatcher, Parkinson, Major, Blair / Brown, and now Cameron / Osborne - they are liars and thieves by profession, and, because they're stealing from honest helpless folk - the young, the old, workers and the poor, those politician tax-thieves are perverts.lie-12


UK's legislators are greedily stealing from the old, the poor, the sick, from working people and most of all from children already doomed to lives of poverty (because they're denied a decent education lie-12C), who, along with their similarly under-educated parents, suffer massively regressive over-taxation. lie-11A

Those greedy and corrupt lie-12D parliamentarians and their top-bureaucrats lie-12E & lie-13 & lie-13A  are lying, thieving perverts.  They should be jailed, if not executed for treason.



UPDATE - Nov 2010 - Review of UK's Waste & Injustice of Tax-Swindles and `Charges'

UPDATE - Sep 2011 - `UK Tax System = Unfair, Regressive, Corrupting, Wasteful' - Delayed (by Gov't) I.F.S Report

UPDATE - Nov 2011 - Reason for Political & Bureaucratic Corruption

UPDATE - June 2014 - IPSOS/MORI Poll - UK Gov'ts Always Lied About Taxes (text) - Reality Worse Than Folk Think

The three main UK parties - Tory/Conservative, Labour/Socialist & Liberal/Democrat - conspired for generations to keep UK's taxes corruptly regresssive and SECRET
Proof that all three parties are owned and controlled by the very rich - those profiting from corruption and secrecy; still existing TODAY


Shamefully, all present UK national politicians are just as hypocritical; as are UK's lying and tax-thieving bureaucrats, lie-13 & lie-13A  judges (and most magistrates), senior police, media-bosses, and bishops of the `C of E'. lie-13C

The BBC lie-14 & lie-14A also gets rich from another regressive & unfair tax:  the UK `TV License'.  Why else do its not-very-good presenters receive millionaires' incomes?  Because they, and their editors, conspire to gloss over Gov't tax corruption and actively lie lie-15 & lie-15A & lie-15B& lie-15C  to deceive the public.  That long-running conspiracy is motivated by greed and selfishness, and the BBC's own involvement in political corruption and tax corruption. lie-16 & lie-14A

This generation lie-17  of corrupt politicians, serving only the interests of stupid lie-18 rich people, has deformed the UK post-war tax system into its present corrupt and highly regressive state.

Every year it takes more than 50% of total income from working / middle-incomed folk, much more from poorer families, but less than 0% from the very rich, who collect more subsidies than they pay in tax.

So inequality is always increasing in UK.  Continually honest working people and the poor are made poorer, while the corrupt rich make themselves richer and richer. lie-19

Because foolish, venal and corrupt politicians, senior-civil-servants, police-chiefs, judiciary, church and most media are in the hands of the even stupider rich. lie-20 & lie-03 & lie-21 & lie-22

Did you happen to hear Tony Blair's weasel words (backed by tax-thief Brown) "Britain has the lowest tax-burden in Europe"

So how come
ordinary British middle and working class people pay the highest taxes in Europe?


Here's how :-


`AVERAGE' : a statistic often used by lying lawyers


Example -

PAUL [a `banker'] MAKES PROFITS OF £1100 AND ALSO GETS (STEALS) A FURTHER £1000 IN `PUBLIC SUBSIDY'

HE PAID 0% TAX


WHILE TOM, DICK & HARRY [three `workers'] EARN £100 EACH, AND ARE TAXED £80 EACH

THEY PAID 80% TAX = £240 IN TOTAL (mostly in HIDDEN TAXES)



SO TOTAL TAX PAID (from Tom, Dick Harry _and_ PAUL) WAS £240


BUT A LYING POLITICIAN OR LAWYER CAN LEGALLY SAY:-

"The tax burden is low - only 10%"

Because total income of £2400 paid £240 in tax.

But the WORKERS paid 80% TAX, while the RICH made a PROFIT




It's easy isn't it ?

For a politician or lawyer - who pays no net tax - to tell legal lies!




Note: almost unbelievably, that's the TRUE SPREAD of today's UK's TAX COST BURDENS.

Check `averages' - DAMNED LIES - political untruth.

Check truth - UK's High-Tax FactSheet - honest reporting.

-

That lying claim (by Tony Blair) is further proved a lie by these admissions from the Conservative Chancellor of the Exchequer, Norman Lamont :-


1 - " [British leaders of] ... industry were anxious to see Continental taxes increase nearer to British levels"

and

2) - "... legally binding minima would force some countries to raise their taxes in the direction of British taxes".


-

[p205 - "In Office" by Norman Lamont - 1999 - ISBN 0-316-64707-1]

In 1997 "New Labour" took power - and continued to implement exactly the same wasteful, regressive and corrupt Conservative tax-system.

-

So Nothing Has Changed - Yet!

new `Perceptions' steps towards honesty in public life.step1, step2, step3, step4, step5, step6.



Politicians and bureaucrats always lie about taxes.

A Tax System which gives `allowances', and those only to the rich, will inevitably be both wasteful and corrupt.

Eventually the very rich pay NO net tax

- and -

ALL net taxes are paid by the middle-incomed and the poor

- as in Britain today.

Date: 29 April 2001





11 Jan 2001 - Children link01 of the poor are barred from school for not wearing expensive compulsory school uniforms their overtaxed parents can't afford.

1999 - Many councils link02 now charge fees for "public" services paid for by poor peoples' taxes - educational link03 & link04 facilities, museums, even "public" washrooms or lavatories.

So the poor and lower-incomed can't use them!

Now young mothers and anyone out-of-work, paying vastly higher real tax rates than the well-off councillors and their richer friends, are corruptly excluded from use of services (and grants) for which they (the poor) are paying so much.

Hypocrite councillors and rich senior civil servants are thus exposed as liars link07 and thieves.  For the middle-incomed and the poor - who pay the highest rates of local tax - are now excluded, by unfair costs, from the very services for which they are paying so highly.

`Perceptions' editor (me) wrote to John Major (then UK Prime Minister) asking why his government allowed Duke of Westminster (England's richest so-called "aristocrat") to escape 99.9% of the taxes that we poorer people are forced to pay.

[E.g. the Duke pays less than 0.001% property tax (`council tax'), while many poor people are forced to pay 1000% - a tax rate one million times higher than the Duke's

The Duke - like other rich aristocrats (and all national politicians) - is paying much less tax than the national average and is therefore a criminal parasite (and pervert), feeding off the poor - see here & here]

John Major instructed his civil servant to answer, saying -

a) that British taxes were 'fair' - a lie;

b) that 'National Insurance' was not taxation - another lie;

c) that the Duke paid fair taxes - yet another lie.

-

All politicians and senior civil servants are motivated to lie, especially about taxes.
