We already now have the extra bedroom tax, what will be next ?

We have already had the 'window' tax, which resulted in thousands of windows being bricked up.

I suggest a gnome tax, a barbecue tax and a conifer tax …. any other suggestions ?

Are we the only two on tonight Lazarus the 2nd ?

Air-breathing Tax …. they already have that but your not taxed on breathing in only out

Nooky Tax …... I will get a tax rebate then :-). They do have a sort of 'nooky' tax in Japan if a couple only have one child they get a tax rebate, two children then nothing and three or more you get higher and higher tax's

Perhaps we should have that here. It would save a fortune in benefits.

But where would all the young workers, needed to pay for the pensions of the old, then come from?

Ah, yes, we encourage more immigrants to fill that need???

Not if their child benefit money gets sent overseas to pay to another nation's pensioners.

'We already now have the extra bedroom tax'

What is that? I can't find anything about it on the government website.

"I can't find anything about it on the government website"

Perhaps if you tried looking in the section where the phantom 'Poll Tax' was hiding?

How about a tax on people who will argue over anything.

  Quickbeam 08:36 AM 29 Apr 13

You might find that rather expensive...

Quickbeam But I would get a rebate for having a "laugh allowance"
