Just out of interest I was looking at the tax rate in Slovakia, US and UK based on my own income today.
In Slovakia I pick up net about 71% of my gross salary and if I moved to US I would similarly pick up 71%.
If I decided to move back to the UK though I would pick up about 60% of my gross salary.

Amazing given that comparison that there's talk of "taxing the rich" even more and I actually don't in anyway consider myself anything more than a middle income earner.
Unless someone wants to offer me an amazing salary there is no financial incentive to move back.
If you don't frequent food banks then you are "rich" and then deserve to suffer the fiscal consequences. Ends.

And here was me thinking it was only going to be the top 5% whose tax bill increased.

With all the promises Labour are making it'll be your easily milked PAYE muppets that would carry the can, because without extensive tax restructuring your chances of getting the rich to actually pay more are scant to say the least. I won't be overjoyed at voting Conservative next week but Labour, from an economic standpoint, is just simply unelectable, regardless of principles.

Again I'm not looking at what they are saying for the future just where it is today.

I take it you don't work in a school or a hospital then. At least you can be guaranteed 5 years of strength and stability.

Neither side seem to have an answer between cut and cut or spend and spend neither of which seem particularly sustainable
The poor are taxed
The rich are soaked

Those on high incomes (not necessarily "rich") are already soaked. Those on low incomes are barely taxed on that income at all thanks to the Tories.
