Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not people who are on high wages we worry about. It's the ones who have escaped being on a wage and earn stratospheric amounts of money that are effectively untaxed.

Darling knows this and has done nothing about it cos he's scared shitless of the City.

50% is a start, although it won't do much more than piss off some of the mid/upper manager types.

A crackdown on tax avoidance would be much more interesting.

Considering that the chances of Darling still be chancellor after the next election are somewhere between not very much and absolute zero, you'd think NuLab might finally be able to find a spine for its last hurrah.
