I see that the Office of Tax Simplification is in favour of merging income tax and national insurance.
Renaming the con trick of NI (it most certainly is not a ring fenced insurance scheme, but is merely another tax) is all very well.
However, this recommendation will be used by politicians to raise taxes as the limits on NI will be removed, and an additonal tax of 10% will be lumped into the current rates.
Tax does have to be taxing.
