    What kind of family has a combined income of £22k? Are you including kids under 16 in that family? Only one person is responsible for the council tax (in effect) so if the others want to chip in then that's up to them. I can confirm that my 26 y.o son chips in the square root of fuck all! I will concede it can be indirectly regressive.

    Be nice if they had the same egalitarian approach with Income Tax, I bet I'd be quids in.

    Bloke on £16k full-time, missus on £4k part time. Some money for the bairn as well I guess.

    I pay the best part of £800, but in honesty it should be more, councils need more money

  6. Did you get hit with a big stick?

    I remember when I’d left college, before I’d found a job, it was 1991 I think.

    I lived at home and I received a poll tax bill so I had to attend an interview at the local town hall. I ended up not having to pay anything.

    I was about 8 year old, I didn’t even know what poll tax was.

    My dad made me wear it to walk round Food Giant in Southwick.

  16. I agree as long as they can afford to contribute there's no reason why they shouldn't.

    It isn't as bad as VAT though, as Council tax is tiered by house value.

    The pub isn't there anymore.

    No, most countries, especially in the EU have some form of tax on goods and services.
