I think it may be sarcasm.
Hard to tell – The conversation is full of fluff like this – often composed by academics attached to some industry ‘partnership’.
Seem to want to pay more tax?
What type of tax?
For what services?
I doubt anyone wants a government to misallocate resources.
Assuming that is not an issue (chuckle) the issue becomes who contributes to the resources being allocated and in what proportions.
People clearly see the need for govt allocations but I think most people are not satisfied with the job done to date. They may be mistaken in their conclusion but that is another story
