    Default top 1% pay 27%, top 10% pay 90%

    Tax paid by the top 1% has trebled since the 1970s | Daily Mail Online

    Tax paid by the top 1% has TREBLED since the 1970s and they now pay almost 27% of all income tax
    Analysis of income tax records shows the top 1% per cent pay 27% of income tax
    In 1976, the top 1% of earners paid just 11% of the income tax to the Treasury
    Almost all income tax in Britain is paid by those on more than £51,400 a year
    Good job we aren't importing lots of low paid people

    The labour of low paid people creates wealth for the rich, who then pay tax on their income.

    At least they've stuck to their promise on no rise in NICs.

    I bet the amount of disparity between incomes has gone up by way more.

    Just occured to me that a leftwing and a rightwing utopia have a lot in common. In a leftwing utopia no-one can be bothered to collect the fruit from the fields because they're all living on benefits, in a rightwing utopia no-one collects the fruit because of immigration controls.

    A natural effect of the growing wealth gap (rich get richer, etc) is that the very richest are proportionally richer now than they were before, so the tax is more concentrated higher up the food chain.
