Your article 50p tax rise “would save fire service” has great merit, however the fire service has done such a brilliant service in reducing the risk of fire by their wonderful publicity campaigns, that maybe we don’t need quite such a large service, I may be wrong.
If we carry this idea on, then perhaps we should pay, say £5 per week extra for the NHS, £1, for the police, £3 for the Armed Forces etc. Do we want higher taxes or reduced services? The choice is ours, I know what I would like.
