"The UK's tax collection agency is putting forth a proposal that all employers send employee paychecks to the government, after which the government would deduct what it deems as the appropriate tax and pay the employees by bank transfer

I hope this is fought. What they are essentially proposing to do in the UK is to put all earned income into the government's general pool, making them the owners of your income, and paying you just as if you were a government worker, or social welfare recipient. Taking all choice out of your hands for the money you worked for.

Ah, what a great government we have.

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

You guys get paid in checks?

The number you hope for at the moment you throw the dice, is the one you'll want to keep.

I'm so glad i live in the USA right now.


Ah shit I think I've broken my leg, this is gonna cost a fort...oh wait, free healthcare.

And meh, I don't really care if I'm getting the same money at the end of it, whether they take the tax before or after I get the money doesn't really bother me.

yeah, we may have pricey health care, but the solution is simple: don't get sick.

that is a horrible idea, though. how long would it take to get paid for people who live check to check? I'm pissed that I get paid every two weeks instead of every week now.

That is a horrible idea, The HMRC has a terrible reputation with data retention as well as taking ages if an error is made in the taxpayer's behalf.

This is a terrible idea. This is basically wasting money on something that doesn't need to be wasted on.

This.

You can guarantee that mistakes will be made and they will not take responsibility for them.

The one thing that bothers me is that they asked someone from the Taxpayers Alliance what they thought. They get far too much attention for what they are.

And the whole paycheck going to the government thing won't happen.

I hope not, glad to see there are those over on yourside that would fight this. It wouldn't be too popular here either thoughthe scary things there would be those that support it or worse those that just shrug about it.

shouldn't happen, there would outrage across the country. The governments centralised systems aren't really the best, and the larger they are the worse they are. A lot of them are prone to lose data and information, can't get IT systems to work properly, and when mistakes are made it can take a long long time to get sorted. The sheer scale of this would be monumental, it would dwarf similar things like welfare or student loan systems. Awful idea, and im usually pro-central government.

It's almost as if America and the UK are in a competition to see who can have a more retarded government.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

This doesn't sound good at all, sounds very fishy and shouldn't happen.

I don't like government control



Based partly on opinions here and probably elsewhere it probably won't happen. I guess it is fringe group or maybe a section of people in government themselves suggesting this?

Still what many once said "never" have in time seen things to come true...

All I have to say is:


O! say can you see by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

There are too many conspiracy theorists in America to allow that to happen.
Suck it, bitches
