Note that "highly trained workforce" does not include Gary with his 3rd Class "Degree" in Furniture Textile Design from East London.
I think you mean Applied Furniture Textile Design with Cushion Arrangement.

why? Please explain why i need to give 40% of my money to the government? alright, reduce income tax to 10% or so to retain bare bones government for law etc. But 40p in every £ i earn over £30,000 is a bit extortionate. I am thinking of suing the government for operating a monopoly, under tis own legislation.
You aren't earning £30,000!

Hey...

I don't think they do that course. I tried searching the UCAS website for it. But what if I wanted to do Applied Furniture Textile Design with Cushion Arrangement?

LOL cushion arrangement doesn't make sense. But there is nothing wrong with furniture design, it's a very good business which would bring a lot of money.

In history income tax was introduced by Robert Peel in 1841, Gladstone tried getting rid of it in the 1850's like you suggest but found it was impossible, there was a reason for that that still stands today, it provides a predicable direct income to the government.
