    Jim Scott corrected my post, it was Mark Twain who made the comment about Congress being the only criminal enterprise, not Mr Rogers. Thank you Jim

    I don't believe that health percentage.
    The Progressives have become full blown NAZIs, to thwart a Hitler that doesn't exist...since that is the only way they can express, and self justify, their fascism.

    So what's the true percentage and what is the correct UK expenditure?

    If you can't detail the correct figures to disagree with HMRC, you've just made a foolish comment to be honest.

    As soon as you are born, you are given a name, a religion, a nationality and race.

    You spend the rest of your life defending a fictional identity

    I don't respond to mentions. They're just flame baiting and call outs.

    I have no idea, I simply don't believe it.

    If it is anything like Canada, we are never quite certain what portion of all our combined taxations (not just the income tax of your OP)...because it all goes into the big Federal pot so to speak, and it literally is never made quite clear - either by design or complexity.

    Income tax and harmonized tax etc, differs between the Provinces...and Fed has calculations of how they dish that out, sometimes adding in more that is not straight taken from taxation...to certain Provinces.

    Provincial healthcare costs average out to about 40% of their budgets.

    So, I am being sincere, when I say I don't believe it.

    The truth about welfare spending: Facts or propaganda? - BBC News

    Because of Thatcher - she destroyed jobs therefore more people were out of work, it was 9 out of 10 out of work in Liverpool at one time. Labour most certainly didn't help but it began with Thatch who also began the destruction of our local governments and the NHS.

    He doesn't mention the impact of the EU which has been devastating - as it has been to all 'member states'.
