I had a thought today. This whole recession thing, with the associated government spending cuts. Well, I've come up with an idea that could put the whole economy right with the agreement of the majority. What do you think?.................
1) Put up taxes, say income tax for a start. However much is needed to fill the spending gap, whack 'em up. Equally across the board so no income group feels better or worse.
2) Allocate an idividual number to every pound that an individual pays into the tax coffers
3) At the end of the year draw 25 numbers out of a hat (we could get a computer todo this bit) and give 25 lucky taxpayers £1 million.
4) That's it! It really is as simple as that. Obviously we could play around with the prize money, ie. 50 x £500,000 or 5 x £5million etc, but it is a great incentive to contribute more towards the running of the country.
And let's face it the biweekly pilot scheme seems to be working!
See you outside number 11!
