Just a thought, possibly being dumb, but what does PAYE tax pay for? NI pays for the health service, council tax pays for local services (bins, cops etc.), road tax allegedly pays for roads, but what about the big bugger? There is vat on everything we buy pretty much, there is extra tax on anything thats fun, yet a large proportion of my wages end up in some black hole. Surely its not all for benefits scroungers?
