Or should we just get off our butts and do it ourselves? Hmm, how long do I have to think about this one…
For further information, and hopefully inspiration, I will hand over to George Monbiot; an infinitely smarter and more coherent person than myself….
“For the first time in my life I resent paying my taxes. Until now I have seen this annual amputation as a civic duty – like giving blood – necessary to sustain the life of a fair society. Suddenly I see it as an imposition. Its purpose has reverted to that of the middle ages: subsidising the excesses of a parasitic class. A high proportion of the taxes I pay will be used to bail out companies which, as the Guardian’s current investigation shows, have used every imaginable ruse to avoid paying any themselves.
I think that for many people this is the final blow: the insult which seals their alienation from the political process.”
