The Spectator on the Brexit bus figure — 1 Comment

  1. “And what about taxation? That is routinely referred to in gross terms: ie, what we pay in. The lower-paid half of the country gets all of its money back (and more) in public services. So their net contribution is negative”

    Thats a very good point that would resonate with everyone. No one thinks about the amount they get in net terms from the State vs how much they pay in, they just think about how much £££ is left on their wage slip after the taxes are removed. And how much council tax they pay, regardless of how many council services they use.
