Because that's the way a civilised, compassionate, caring and mature society works. It works for the many and not just for the self and the few.
    I'm implying nothing. I asked a question and if you for 1 minute could take your blinkers off you my have noticed. You can answer it then.

    If couple A earn 80K (in total) and are taxed at a higher rate,
    Should couple B who earn 70K each be taxed on the 140K that they can earn?

    my thoughts are, - is it fair.

    Your question is about how Income Tax is applied and does not seem to relate to the Labour Party proposals. But since you asked.

    As far as I am concerned I do not care how much my neighbour pays or does not pay in IT. If I can afford to pay what I am asked to pay then I happily pay, if I feel it is a struggle to pay I accept that I have to pay and so will happily pay. If I do not care what my neighbour pays then the notion of fairness/unfairness does not come into it. These things only really come into play if I look at my neighbour with envy or resentment.

    I note that the couple on joint 80k could both be earning 40K and so neither would be paying IT at the current 40% higher rate. Couple B would both be taxed at 40%
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    The answer was yes or no. See FD respons. I personally don't care either way and as you are someone that insists on fairness I was only after your take on it.

    A fine example of how low down the barrel Scottish Tories have to go for candidates.

    Gone fishing again. Two people make inappropriate tweets ( got to love social media) and you blame it on the Tory Party.

    I presume all SNP members are liars after the leaders Fisheries lies.

    One assumes that the Scottish Conservatives had a form of checking/vetting and these two new councillors passed with flying colours.

    Of course it is the fault of the Tory party.
