I would like to pay more tax, please.
Not for long, just a couple of years, to sort some shit out.
This is how I would like it to be.
I would like to see a detailed job description, a statement of work done, hours worked and expenses and salary paid for every civil servant. I would like to decide which, if any, I would like to keep, then get rid of the rest.
I would then like to see a statement of what the country owes, and to whom, and under what terms, and would like to tell rather a lot of them to shove it up their collective bottoms. The rest I would like to renegotiate, and I would not give a bollocks about what that did to our wonderful credit rating, as we would not then need to borrow any more.
I would then like to use the extra tax to pay off the ones that really did need paying off, if any.
Then I would like to leave it like that. And if anyone in government ever ran up a bill again, I would like them to be put up against a wall and shot.
I would like to pay more tax, like that, please.
