Charles Worsman is not happy with the Pre Budget Report. 45% income tax takes it too fucking far! A penny increase on the tax base rate would have a 10X greater profit margin!on Monday - 8 Comments

That's a very heated rant! I just wish I was rich enough to fall into that tax bracket! x

It has wound me up rotten Laura. 5% makes one helluva difference.

Very true. The 40K+ earners are going to get hit too hard, and the 100K+ bracket might aswel not earn at all. Why use higher earners to bail out national debt? Oh I forgot, Labour is in charge. How surprising....

Amen to that...'give' with one hand, take even more with the other!
I was learning about liver cirrohsis today whiterussion
The liver gets so badly damaged that the portal vein (drains all the blood back into the heart form the guts) shuts down and stops working. The bodyuses its default shunts to get blood back to the heart - but these are small and innefectual cos they arent supposed to take that volume of blood usually. They become swelled and it leads to this thing called medusa-something where all the veins protrude on the body wall and create wierd bumps. It looks disgusting
