Later on Mr Cable returns to the subject of \”fair taxes\”, when asked what he would consider a success after five years as business secretary. He even goes much further than Labour ministers ever dared by using the \”R\” word (redistribution) and spelling out exactly what he means – \”a tax system that means people at the bottom end of the scale pay less and at the top end of the scale pay more.\”
Given that our current tax system does this then I assume we can say that the current tax system is fair then?
Please note that he doesn\’t say \”pay more as a percentage of their incomes\”, just \”more\”.
Good, so that\’s settled then.
