Do Rich People Pay Enough Tax?

Geraint Clarke

"Rich people don't pay enough tax."

It's a lie that's perpetuated by politicians and the media. They need you to have a nemesis.

But what if I told you that the top 1% of tax payers, pay over 30% of the total tax collected in the UK - and almost half of UK adults (43%), pay no tax at all.
