So we got a letter from Louise Ellman again this week:
“RE: A fair tax system for all
Thank you for your email regarding a new tax system.
I have made representations on your behalf to the Rt Hon Alistair Darling MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer.
I will contact you when I receive a response”
It’s very good of Louise to do this on our behalf, as we really can’t say we are in favour of an unfair tax system; that just doesn’t sound right. The fact that we’ve never contacted Louise about an unfair tax system makes her response a little strange, though.
Maybe, based on the meeting we had with her a few months back, where we talked about our strong desire for her to stop the legislation on unfair treatment of home educating families, she has surmised that we are against all forms of unfairness?
It looks very likely that our beloved MP’s filing system has gone a bit potty, which is not something you really want when you are 8 weeks out from an [supposed] election date.
Whilst it might be true that we are against unfairness, tax systems or not, I would much rather she made representations on our behalf about home education, rather than tax, at this time. I’m quite willing for her to make these representations to the Rt Hon Alistair Darling MP instead of Ed Balls, though. You never know, we might get a better response than we have in the past.
