Pay Your Taxes Week!

I have nothing specifically against an 'Armed Forces Week' but couldn't we find better causes than honouring people who shoot people for a living.

How about 'Rich People Who Pay Their Taxes' Week or 'Tabloids That Tell The Truth' Week?

We could print a league table of those who pay the highest percentage of their income in tax, or publish a rich list of people who pay the most tax and give them some prize and recognition. Maybe show a clip of some of the millions of people whoose lives are saved or made better every year by the NHS. Or we could show how Rupert Murdoch's cleaner pays more tax than him.

The Daily Mail always easily tops the nasty league with the most complaints about their printed lies, instead we could honour the paper that has the fewest complaints or the TV station that has given in to the least sensationalism. Just a thought. I suppose none of these 'lefty' issues are of interest to the PR companies that started this racket in the first place. Apparently there are so many 'theme' days in the US, that every day has about four thousand. See Flat Earth News.
