Well Done Peter – Yes Para 2 generally talks about standard deductions.

However, there is an argument put forward lucidly by Andy Thurman that says, if I may paraphrase, that after you have taken off the ‘standard deduction’ then if the remainder is still excessive, then that remainder could be subject to restriction.

It’s certainly a novel thought and I doubt whether it has been tested but
