starmer's economic and social madness - vat on schooling

Recommended reading...

"We note in Appendix 1 that a 23% VAT on education in Greece (in
apparent contravention of EU law) caused, according to The
Economist,17 “general mayhem” for exactly the reasons we outline
here: migration into the overburdened state sector, school closures,
job losses, tax avoidance, and a “gap between theory and practice”.
The implementation was scrutinised in the European Parliament,
where it was noted as “likely to cause financial hardship to thousands
of families”.18 Any review of the effect of VAT seems incomplete
without mention of the Greek experience."
 [p. 10, Short-Term Thinking: Analysing the Effect of Applying VAT to
School Fees, Adam Smith Institute, 17/3/2024; link to 38-page pdf]

This paper is a reaonable summary of the variable and inevitable innumeracy of socialists, driven by envy and wishful thinking over analysis and pragmatism.

god help Britain if they elect starmer and his band of fantasists.
