Well said.
If we want a proper debate on the flat tax - and the Labour party doesn't - we must remember that, as the IMF says, it's not necessarily regressive. For example, a flat tax of 50% with a big personal allowance would be more progressive than many current tax systems.
The merits (or not) of a flat tax, and the arguments for (or against) greater redistribution are logically separate. Let's keep them so.
