So was the gist of a pair of Headlines I saw the other week, and been meaning to mutter something about on this blog ever since.
Anyone else see the logic in this?
Around 26th Feb, George Osborne says “UK has Run out of Money“, and seems to be going ahead with a Fuel Tax rise at a time everyone’s screaming out for him to cut the damn things to stop harming the economy + cut government spending to fund Tax cuts.
Then a few days later, there is the headline “Foreigners to get £20,000 HIV Drugs FREE on the NHS“…. what part of “there’s no money left” don’t they get their heads round?
In Other News……………
Tax Paid to UK Government last year = £590billion
UK Government spending last year = £710billion
