Quote of the day: “No representation without taxation”
From the 2007 book, John Stuart Mill: Victorian Firebrand:”
"[Mill] also insisted that there should be no representation without taxation. Allowing non-taxpayers a vote, he said, amounted 'to allowing them to put their hands into other people's pockets for any purpose which they think fit to call a public one’."
Is this an idea whose time has finally come back? I firmly think it is.
