Getting real

I would like to make some points in relation to the proposed property tax being introduced.

My first point is that we are a socialist country and we have a progressive income tax system, which takes a larger percentage of income from higher earners than from lower earners.

Every time an expense such as the household charge arises, the airwaves become filled with people discussing how unfair it is for high earners to pay the same price as low earners.
