The latest ONS data on pop[ulation growth revealed the extraordinary fact that now we have a 50% tax rate in the UK fewer people emigrated.
Why is that?
Certainly it doesn't suggest the rich are leaving in greater numbers.
Maybe it does suggest people like a more equal society.
And people came here in record numbers.
The myth that tax drives people away is, well, just a myth.
So' like the rumour of fairies at the bottom of the garden shall we treat it as a load of old baloney - because that is what it is?
