Talking Re: Taxed.

You raise a good and valid point morgan_brotherz. So no, you are not being silly. Have some Karma to take you over 50.

However it could also be argued that if you are old enough to pay tax and thus vote then you are old enough to join the armed forces and go into combat.

I know that you can join the armed forces as a boy seaman or airman or soldier but you donít get sent abroad to fight under the age of 18. You may have to parry bombs and missiles in this country though but the so would the rest of us.

I donít suppose that conscription will ever come into force again but how would a 17 years old feel about having to go and fight and probably get killed?

In my view no one under the age of 18 should be eligible to pay Income Tax on earned income.
