Comment of the year
I've never met Harry Hutton and he's never heard of me (probably), but I really need to buy him a drink sometime. Here he is, in a Samizdata comment, explaining the virtues of a flat rate tax:
I once saw a fight in a pub about Estonian flat taxes. This one guy was mouthing off about how iniquitous they were, not being progressive, and this other guy says, "Don´t be a c___. Tax revenues have increased," and head-butted him.Why do I find pub violence so funny?
We all piled in on the side of the flat taxes guy, on the grounds that Estonian tax revenues have indeed increased.
