Tax freedom day
I have been reading today about tax freedom day. It's calculated by dividing the total Government taxes by the estimated total net national income and has been calculated in the United States for more than 100 years.
This year, in the USA the date will be 23rd April. So all americans are now working for themselves. Nice.
In the UK?
4th. Of. June.
That means, that we are working 40% of the year, JUST to pay the government.
Oh yes, I can see the need to increase fuel tax and double road tax etc etc. We are paying way too little.
By the way, we have offices in Spain, and when I was there last week, fuel was 65p a litre. The UK is the HIGHEST priced fuel in the World (we were number 2 a coupe of months ago).
