Freedom to Serf
We have come a long way since the Middle Ages
Today, is tax freedom day, you have worked 154 days for your master and what have you got in return?
It's a tribute to New Labour and particulaly Enron Brown's skill with "stealth" taxes that so few people seem to have noticed the huge rise in taxes that has overtaken them. But Tax Freedom Day is a clear measure of the total burden which he can't escape.
And don't forget that Enron Brown has been on a borrowing binge, which future taxpayers will have to pay for. Adding that burden I estimate it will push the date out to 11 June by 2007.
