Oh no. No you fucking don’t…

I did read something about this earlier in the year, but I didn’t take it terribly serious as it sounds completely unworkable. In light of recent monumental fuck ups by HMRC, however, the horror of this idea couldn’t be clearer:

Instead of employers deducting income tax then paying gross salaries to employees, the gross monthly payment would go to an HMRC-run tax “calculator”, which would then pass the net salary to the worker.

The reform would mean the end of traditional monthly payslips, because employers would no longer be able to tell workers how much tax they had paid each month.

Errr.. no. No way.

If you really need me to explain how many ways that could possibly go wrong, you should probably go and read a blog about babies or kittens or football instead. Baaaa.

    I’ve got a better idea: Increase the Personal Allowance to £12,500- then introduce a flat Income tax of 20%. Get rid of every dodge, fiddle and NI scam. Set IHT at 20%, set CGT at 20% and then get rid of HMRC simples! Cunts.

    They’re actively trying to see how long it takes before people stop grumbling and opt instead for armed fucking resistance!
