One thought on “East Devon pensioners are richer than Exeter pensioners!

  1. Just because one group pays more tax than another group does not necessarily imply that it is richer. And without knowing what specific taxes are included in the “tax paid” we cannot make any judgements.

    For example, Exeter Pensioners could be better at exploiting tax avoidance schemes. Or it could be that East Devon pensioners have to keep working to be able to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table, and so are paying income tax, whilst the Exeter pensioners are relaxing down the pub. Or perhaps both groups are still working, but Exeter (Lab.) pensioners just get paid less.
