Tax tax and tax - it's the only way to sustain the government

This report sums up most poloticians' attitudes to solving a "problem".

We have seen the water companies fined hundreds of million of pounds for failing the public. This is a tax, not a fine. The money goes to the Treasury instead of toward relieving the very problems the fine is aimed at.

Now the move is on to raise taxes to cut carbon emssions in air travel and large vehicles. You know, we are soon going to come to a time when we will be paying out more in tax than we bring in in earnings. This possibility is a lot more certain than the conundrum of global warming. So we'll all work as bureaucrats for the government. Just how long that scenario could be "sustained" I leave to your imagination.
