"Why bother with one tax when two will do?"

Are you mad? There is NIC and income tax, fuel duty and vat (good one that - compounded), green levies and vat, stamp duty and inheritance tax. All pairs of taxes applied to the same goods. This allows the revenue raisers to talk about, say, income tax at one percentage when income is in fact taxed at another, higher, rate.
