Why are there three taxes on your wages?

There is Income Tax, Employee’s National Insurance and Employer’s National Insurance. All those taxes take part of the money that your employer pays for your services and gives it to the Government. Why don’t we just call it what it is? Income Tax.
It is really important that we don’t let the politicians get away with this ruse and keep up the pressure for simpler, fairer and more honest taxes. That is why we have teamed up with our friends at See what you mean to produce a new video that you can watch by clicking on the picture below.

If you like our new video, then please help us spread the word. If you use Facebook or Twitter then share it with your friends that way. But just sending the link to your friends and family will really help. If you just copy the link – http://youtu.be/C9ZMgG9NiUs – into an email andsend it to ten people, and encourage them to do the same, you can make an enormous difference and help it go viral.

Thank you so much for your help.

    My mother paid tax on the money she earned as a nurse. She was taxed on the money she paid into her pension. Now she is taxed when she draws her pension. But heyy, jewish bankers have to earn a crust, you know??

    She’ll have had tax relief on pension contributions.

    Tax is theft plain and simple.

    If we can assume that we are born with a right to life then we are entitled to 100% of the fruits of our labour.
    If a thief takes 40% of your earnings they are denying your right to life.
    By their actions they are stating that you do not have a right to life!
    That is precisely what government taxation is – it establishes that you are in fact owned – a slave.

    income tax + national insurance + enmployers NI = 40% + 20% vat = 60%
    + inflation – a hidden taxthats been accumulating for decades if not centuries.

    The vast majority of what we earn is stolen from us – imho 90% + in real adjusted terms!

    There is also the cumulative burden of interest. It has been calculated and it is very substantial. Basically the money system is designed to maintain the vast majority in perpetual poverty. In addition to the burdens of taxation and interest, there are the periodic recessions caused by the banking system. The middle class in the UK and US is now disappearing.
