Well it's odd that the government doesn't increase a 50% income tax band for high-earners because, for once, it seems to be a populist policy (something like 60% of people want to "hammer the rich")

You are not supposed to be looted by the poor and the middle-class. That's just reeks too much class warfare, and besides, the rich people would come up with a brilliant plan: "Place their money somewhere else!"
