We must also realise that income tax is a direct taxation.

We are taxed irrespective of our income on all manner of other things, by indirect taxation.

We all need food, part of the cost of that food is the cost of transportation, fuel costs. That fuel is taxed and we as individuals all pay for that cost. If someone earns £100 a week or £10,000 a week we are all taxed the same.

VAT on items is non variable for instance, many other examples could be given.

The taxation system is not entirely fair or equal.
