    If you had to vote for salaries to be capped in the uk for everyone what is the best figure?

      NOTHING WRONG WITH EARNING 100K



      as long as you actually earn it
      neuter and microchip and keep your cats in at night and just in case you lose one of the little buggers
      anyone who loses a cat can contact me by pm.

      £250k. Pointless though, I'd suggest higher paid earners would spend more back into the economy, than companies earning more money.
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      £1 billion. I think a salary over £1 billion is unnecessary.

      Especially as Corbyn said a cap would be significantly more than the 138 grand he earns.

      I'm sure the poll was created with tongue firmly in cheek though.

      I'd vote for a sliding scale, pegged to £1 above whatever I happen to be earning. Reviewed daily.

      Unless I end up on an hourly rate at some point, at which stage it's reviewed hourly.

      Genuinely though, he (JC) said something about it being slightly higher than his ~£140k salary. Is the tax system still the same?

      Does everyone else get an earnings boost to account for the drop at the top end? What happens to self-employed people? I guess they put their rates up to compensate for everyone else earning more. Shopkeepers etc can increase their prices accordingly to earn more as well. Sooner or later this will make no difference except we'd get less tax take and the genuine people worth a super premium wage will simply not be available in the U.K.
