So you think the Coalition is running amok with taxation here in Britain....?

Hey, it's happening all over Europe. Andrew Marr led his Sunday morning programme today (9 January) with the bizarre story that the Rumanian Government has taken the decision to tax witches..!!

Yes, you read that right. Witches. You know... Black cats, warty noses.... broomsticks.....those witches.

The move has been widely condemned throughout Rumania, and the Chief Witch has responded by putting a curse on the government and has thrown mandrakes into the Danube. Quite what the latter part of this will achieve is not quite clear, but I'm sure she knows what she's doing.

You couldn't make it up, could you.....?

That's silly.

Rumania sounds like an interesting place though. I wonder if elves and trolls reside there as well.

Wiccan Witches?...sorry, a lot of folks tend to identify witches with Wicca. If I am wrong, please correct me softly.

not as stupid as it sounds.

it seems previously witches were able to work without paying tax on earnings, but the government is trying to change that.

There's a whole slue of occupations that were, for whatever reason, exempted from income tax. If you're earning a living and everyone else pays income tax then you should too.

Talk about using the stereotype. Witches aren't all cauldron using broomstick wielding women you know.

Plus as someone else said there's many different kinds of witches, which kinds are referred to by the article?

Can we have a link please?
