Tax Freedom Day 2006

Having been the government's unpaid slave in January, February, March etc, you can now, finally, start working for your own benefit.

But then again, if you had any living expenses in January, February, March etc, you'll probably still working to pay the costs of paying the government. Given the proportion of salary usually spent on transport and other work-related expenses, you'll probably a slave to the government for half the year.

You don't mind spending 20+ years of your life working as an unpaid slave, working to buy the votes of the feckless, lazy and irresponsible do you?

The politicians who produce nothing, steal your money and spend it bribing voters are entirely unselfish. In fact, the BBC tells me they are morally virtuous.

Just look at the calibre of our politicians. Just look at them. Is keeping each of these individuals in jobs worth a billion pounds PER PERSON, PER YEAR?

Where the hell is Guy Fawkes when you need him?
