    I should look forward to seeing said bill, but it raises the question of why your leader answered my question as he did (the implication of it, at least from what I could tell, was that your party would not support tax rises?)
    It is possible that the party will decide not to support that. As I said, the bill we are currently working on is in the early stages of development. I would suggest quoting paddy here, as I've shed as much light on this as I can

    Not supporting X tax rate in X context =/= not supporting tax rises as a policy.

    it was implied by your suggestion that higher taxes were not something you saw as positive, frankly if you dont think its good to tax the obscene bonuses in the city, then what taxes can you say you support?

    I just answered this in more detail and my ****ing **** internet cut out.

    1) It wasn't implied, that is just your incorrect interpretation.
    2) You asked about a specific rate of tax in a specific context, to translate that to a broad policy on all taxation makes literally no sense.
    3) I didn't say I didn't support taxing them, I said not at that rate.

    okay then, what is it about taxing them at that rate you object to? surely it would be of huge benefit to the tresuary and also popular with the people...

    in what way would you suggest such a tax would not be positive? the fact a few obscenley rich people might object? (frankly to quote one of there cohorts, "let them eat cake", the rest of society has been made to suffer under the yoke of there incompetence, it is high time they themselves were made to pay the price)

    Companies would just stop giving monetary bonuses and would do it in shares instead, for example.

    They are already taxed in a way... and no they should not be taxed any more.

    Speaking for tax, do Labour find the current system of tax satisfactory or should there be change? :holmes:

    Then they will stop giving bonuses and basic salaries will increase. I also don't think small bonuses that people earn are that bad. The issue is better approached with a higher tax band.

    Everyone earning a lot should - that it is a bonus is irrelevant.

    sure, I just find it mighty annoying that they got £14bn of bonuses whilst people with disabilities are being FORCED off benefits and stuff

    Aye, so do I. But slapping a 90% tax rate on bonuses fixes nothing.

    I know the feeling, don't worry. A few days ago I was in an atrocious mood and it spilled onto here quite heavily.
