New tax vs old tax

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 ?

So, defending the truth is arguing over anything, is it?

There is no 'bedroom tax'. How many times does it have to be said that people opposed to this benefits change are playing into the hands of the government by calling it a 'bedroom tax'?

A government minister questioned about the problems caused by the 'bedroom tax' will happily spend all his allotted time explaining that it is not called that and none of the time engaging with the issue itself.

We all know politicians don't want to answer questions so it is vital that the people asking them do so with pinpoint accuracy so that there is nothing the politician can divert to as a means of avoiding an answer.

I reckon, there should be a tax on 'kicking-things-into-the-long-grass', with a rising scale proportional to the distance covered by the kick and the length / height / area of the aforementioned [patch of] greenery.[a Politician Tax?]
