Some interesting points contained in this report from the Taxpayers Alliance. The Taxpayers Alliance has interested me for quite some time with their excellent common sense viewpoints on matters such as the EU. Now they have released some common sense proposals for reducing the size of the state and simplifying the tax system. All great libertarian ideas that are bound to annoy socialists. Please check them and their report out. Personally I consider it very easy to understand why it is obvious that if you reduce taxation you actually get growth. However that does not mean that the powers that be will see it that way. Needless to say the left will be against this but then they never have anything sensible or un-dogmatic to contribute in any case. A sort of 'ooh prosperity is wrong' type of knee-jerk reaction to things. I will bring more from the Taxpayer's Alliance I like them. I blogged about the failure of the big state here. Next I will write about the flawed notion of the Irish nation State as Ireland teeters towards fiscal Union with the EU. It is more than a bit interesting that on this matter I find myself agreeing with this chap! More to come folks.
I am an English guy in my thirties. I have served in the Army, after that I went to university. Upon graduation I went to work in the Middle East and since then have worked and traveled across that region. My home is now in Lancashire and I undertake work on a range of matters to do with travel and business setup in difficult regions. My reason for starting this blog is to engage in dialogue with people whom I respect but strongly disagree with on issues. Plus they should then be less likely to accuse me of trolling! I am a libertarian by nature my politics are centre-right and my preferred governmental model would probably be the one espoused by the USA.
