Taxation is not everybody’s favourite subject. Indeed it comes well down the list of the subjects that people are most likely to engage with when it comes to deciding their personal political priorities. If we all want more money for the NHS, and most of us do, the retort is always where is the money coming from.
This latest video with Professor Richard Murphy from Phantom Power Films helps all of us to engage with the core issues on what tax is for and what it can do to make society more equal. By changing the way tax is used to create a better society we can accomplish the move from Tory tax manipulations that generate Welfare for the Wealthy to a system of properly funded public services and investment in the new growth industries that will deliver well paid jobs.
