Those public sector workers…coming here, taking our jobs and our money

This is an example of how public sector workers are generally better off in the UK due to wasteful government spending.

A recent report has concluded:

A private sector employee working full time on around the median hourly wage, would be around £1,400 a year worse off than their equivalents in the public sector. In parts of the country where premiums are highest this rises to as much as £3,200 a year.

 

This premium exists even before the substantially more generous public sector pensions arrangements and other factors are added to the analysis.

With a humongous healthcare expenditure in the UK, the pay differences between the private and public sector employees hurt all taxpayers.

With government spending increasing year on year, how can we seriously expect to get to grips with our debt?

THE DEATH TAX

The death tax (or inheritance tax) is just another way for the government to confiscate your money. The graph below is very scary indeed. It shows all the sensible countries who don’t implement a death tax, including Hong Kong and Switzerland who are pro free market, anti regulation states, and those countries who do.

The UK and USA have higher rates than Greece, Spain, France, Belgium and Venezuela! That says an awful lot. The death tax should be scrapped in the UK. This will allow people to plow more money back into the economy instead of the government spending it on the non-productive sector.

The unanswerable EU

The unanswerable EU

This image shows the structure of the european union. Let me ask you this. What happens when the commission creates a new law that the majority don’t like? Well the law doesn’t (or sometimes does) get through the european parliament. So what happens if this keeps happening? Nothing because none of the commissioners can be removed by the general public. They are unaccountable, unanswerable and unmovable.

The way it should work

The way governments in the UK and US should work is that they pass laws with the backing of the majority of their citizens, especially on decisions which potentially have a huge impact on the daily lives of those people. 

This is unlike regimes such as the EU and China who appoint officials to write new laws, which are then approved by parliament, without involving the public at all.

But recently, these values the UK and US hold most dear, are being forgotten. One example, is of course the passing of the EU Lisbon Treaty strait through the british parliament without a referendum for the public to decide. The second, is described by this great William Warren cartoon:
