Just before you go getting too carried away:
Income tax - basic rate 28%, top rate 49%
Wealth tax - on all assets of upto 1.4% p.a.
National insurance - 14% (I think)
VAT - upto 25%
Cost of a beer - £5+ / 500mL
Cost of a coke - £5+ / 330mL
Cost of petrol - £1.34 / L
Not that these things are necessarily bad, just the grass doesn't always look quite so green when you take off the rose tinted specs!
