Flat tax proposition

Share this article

I HAVE a view about taxation.

I believe that to get the best growth in the economy, the powers- that-be should have one tax, a flat tax of nine per cent across the community.

That would give our young people some hope of finding a job – a first step on the jobs ladder.

I remember my first year in work.

I found it hard to adjust to the longer hours at work in the 1960s, from the hours spent at school, as they were so different.

We have to find some way to give our young people hope for the future.

Let us believe the powers-that- be can find a way to bring us back some prosperity.
