Now That's How to Properly Behave Like the Ruling Class

As much as I don't like the power of the IRS, even those guys aren't proposing this:

UK Proposes All Paychecks Go to the State First

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (doesn't that sound quaint) has proposed that all employers hand over employee paychecks to the government, who will then decide what employees get to keep. What could go wrong? Read the full article here and commentary here.


  1. It's the defense (in the comments) that is cracking me up: it's a throw-out-ideas thing, and isn't the primary point of the proposal.....

    Oh, great, so someone thought it was even vaguely reasonable to have this as an INCIDENTAL part of a proposal?

  2. Foxfier,
    Pretty amazing. What boggles my mind even more is that it received serious discussion.
