In response to Jonathan Williams: Families pay the price of an unfair tax system, David wrote:
Democracy in this country, that is respecting the wishes of the majority whilst also protecting the minorities from being oppressed by the majority, has been turned on its head. What we have now, as evidenced by this informative article on our dysfunctional tax system, is a dictatorship of the minorities. The mainstream voter, who works hard at a job, raises a family and perhaps gets involved in community matters when he or she has the time, but otherwise only connects with politics at election time, is simply being ignored by the MPs. Our elected representatives only ever listen to the minority groups, and most of those are exceedingly selfish in their demands. Is it any wonder that people are giving up on marriage, home ownership and raising a family of a size sufficient to maintain the nation into the future? Truly this has become a godless, dysfunctional nation and as such it will surely destroy itself.
