Out of Touch on Tax

This letter from Andrew Bower was published in today's Cambridge News, but not in the online edition:
I WAS astonished to hear senior Lib Dem councillor Sian Reid declaring: "Tax is an extremely good thing" at a meeting of the city council on December 4.

She would have had a point if she had praised the principle of collective action for those in need, the provision of civic infrastructure or various public services.

She would also have been right to praise charity.

But by exalting taxation, which should be a means, not an end, she shows how out of touch the Lib Dems are.
