Scaled rate spending tax would increase bureaucracy and red tape, meaning less revenue for services. Flat rate would be better, more efficient, less
We already pay 20%VAT on every purchase except food and children's clothing so perhaps raise it to 25% and take no income taxes from any private
individual but ensure corporate profits pay a substantial percentage to the Treasury for the privilege of conducting business in this country.
Any government not able to provide services to the people and protect national borders on flat rate 20-25% spending tax topped up with corporate
taxes, is not fit for purpose.
