I think we can all agree here. Tories do not tax according to social justice – not the definition usually used of social justice at least.
We also have an actual fact here. The Tories won the last election. Gained the plurality of votes necessary to do so.
A tax system is based upon mutual trust. An electorate has to believe that its government will impose appropriate taxes and then administer them not just legally but in accordance with the principles of social justice.
Therefore that’s bollocks, isn’t it? A plurality of the population doesn’t agree because they voted for the Bastard Tories and against taxation based upon social justice.
A government has to trust that its electorate (and those, like companies, who owe tax even though they rightly have no vote) will pay in accordance with the spirit as well as the letter of the law of the country.
And that is petitio principii. El Tuberoso wants to insist that all should obey the spirit of tax law – except himself in those well documented instances. The British system disagrees, it states that people must obey the law as it is written.
