It's Tax Freedom Day

Finally, we have got to the day where we have finished paying for Gordos bloated public sector for this year.

I'd have a party but I need to put a bit aside to pay for the PFI deals that have not been covered by this.

James, We pay a percentage of our salary in Tax. What these people have done is loaded it all up front. If we paid the Tax to the robber barons before we get any then it would be today, 1-Jun, before we started getting some to keep. Starts 1-Jan and goes on five full months. tax Freedom day has moved for the last few years and in the wrong direction for us but the right way for the evil robber barons to fleece us more every year.

I think we should have flat-taxes like Slovenia/Estonia/wherever, don't you? Why should taxation be so bloody difficult??

Thanxx for your remark: Re the Blyton book - I only found it by chance ... it kind of grabbed me bc I'm fed up of dull "grown-up" reading matter and I'm not into the Harry Potter crapwagon ...

The music wasn't coming from a radio/cd player that was a synthesizer with pre-set tunes & there wasn't much OTHER choice (well none any better) than the 3 I pickd out!

I love reading kids books. Nobody gets anything horrific happening to them. Rarely people die, good stories and the bad guys always get caught and punished. I always have a look at the Kids books when I look at the books in Asda. Latest series is Artemis Fowl. Just read the Lst Colony, which was on the goverment approved list. Good clean fun.
