Just when I thought the UK couldn’t get any more Orwellian

Via Alan, there’s a proposal afoot to pretty much do away with any residual liberty UK citizens still have: the government would directly take employees’ paychecks, deduct whatever is deemed an appropriate level of tax, and deposit the remainder into their checking accounts. Apparently the writer of the linked editorial has no moral qualms against this idea, only questioning some nuts-and-bolts implementation details. God help anyone who proposes something like that here.
