He's arguing that it's not returning a portion but rather paying tax like the rest. That is only true technically and not practically.I kinda don't really get your point here. What are you arguing about?
Who pays the public sector salaries? The government.
Who collects the PAYE that public sector employees? The government.
So essentially what happens is that the government pays its employees, who immediately return a portion of their income to the government in the form of PAYE. Later, they return more of it through VAT.
