Re: Once again

scrap the income tax (which is just a tool of the Left

The reason we learn history is to learn from it and to try to avoid being as stupid now as they were back then.

"Income tax was first implemented in by William Pitt the Younger in his budget of December 1798 to pay for weapons and equipment in preparation for the Napoleonic Wars"

There's no way that Wm Pitt cold ever be called "A leftie". Tax was introduced by the government to pay for wars, not a significant left wing aim.

Making up ridiculous and easily debunked claims is not a winning debating strategy.
