With kids, the £100k wall gets even more ridiculous, more than 100% marginal tax, due to rules over free child care places. "A parent with two children under the age of three would be better off earning £99,000 than they would be earning £134,000,"
The UK is basically a (dysfunctional) health service with a country attached. And Labour are signalling even greater servitude to it, when they come to power; to an NHS whose medical staff go on social media to brag about how much their strikes are harming the patients!
Sadly, a country in the thrall of feckless Marxist socialism, and isolationism.

Why would/should Doctors be exempt from certain taxes the rest of us have to pay? (Same goes for Judges). Yes, their job is important, but there are many important jobs that pay similar amounts and don't receive such exemptions.

Totally agree. But that argument doesn’t get votes, banging the NHS drum might do.

Far more sympathy to be expected for a brain surgeon than an Airbus captain.

If banging the NHS drum is the mechanism for getting a tax rule through for all then fair enough but if they just start taxing people according to their job then that's completely unacceptable.

You cannot start having different tax rules for different professions… I suspect the tories at least know this and that’s why the rule is for everyone. I also suspect that if when Labour get in they will too realise it is too complicated and quietly forget that part.

Except they already do this for Judges... *cries in the corner*

13 years of Tory rule and the UK is Marxist… The logical dissonance to that sentence….
