I feel that allpensioners should be exempted.
Not fully
I agree with most but not the increase of tax
No I do not
I do not agree on more taxes. Taxes are killing the economy. Ordinary people cannot pay more. Add up all the taxes and you will find that very little is left to live on. No wonder that savings in country is very low. Wealthy people is just leaving the country and the rest that is left and which are paying taxes are getting fewer which just leave the country poorer an with more debt
No I do not
Sorry, run a government for the people and not against them. Stop taxing excessively.
No I do not
No, I do not agree. I am sure you can find a better way to reduce carbon imprint such as educating people of the effects.

Added an extra tax puts a strain on peoples budget especially with the rising cost of living.

A government should be run for the people and against them. Help everyone improve their lives instead of finding new ways to tax them.
