Beer and Politics

Even the chronically media-averse amongst you will now be aware that the election campaign is in full swing. Lie and counter-lie fly over the airwaves and the only respite is a nice beer in a great pub (preferably without a television).

I’m going to be part of the problem rather than part of the solution though and ask you to think about the issue of taxes. To do this, I’m going to post a beery allegory which has been doing the rounds on the magic tubes for many years. It’s still apt though. Economists will refute the gross over-simplification, but it’s something to think about as you sup your pints and marshal your thoughts on who to vote for.

The tax system explained with beer.

Apologies for the strange site link, but it was hard to find a copy which wasn’t falsely attributed.
