    Then why bother posting exact earnings? Why not just fill your post with vagueness if you don't want to be challenged on anything?
    Wow, really? Does this really need to be explained to you?

    Yes, it does. I don't see an immediately apparent explanation.

    You see, I called you up on your figures because all too often in debates like these I see dodgy figures plucked out of a hat which are a misrepresentation of the tax system as it currently operates. Sometimes, this is just down to (wilful, in some cases, like this one) ignorance. Sometimes, it is a deliberate attempt to make the tax system appear more burdensome to high earners than it actually is. Either way, I like to make sure that people like you get their facts straight so you guys can argue on the basis of what the tax system actually is, rather than some distortion of it.

    There's a big difference between 18% and 36%, and an even bigger difference between 41% and 61%. It's not like we're niggling over a few percentage points here and there.

    Troll.

    This has to be satire, this can't genuinely bother you. The point I was trying to make didn't rely on the figures being correct, they were just filler.
