    ...and were given a very large sum of money by a magic leprichaun, which of the above would you spend it on, and why? (The magic leprichaun specified you could only spend it on one of the above).

    EDIT: Option 1 should read Education - not just schools: youth clubs etc.

    The above seems to be missing, so I don't know what bit of the above I'd spend it on. Pie, maybe.

    without an educated and skilled population, nothing else works.

    I agree. But we already have an education system, so what would you put the extra money towards?

    Pass a major tax cut and let the people spend the money however they want, not how I want, because they know what they want much better than me.

    I would put the money towards employing more teachers, in order to have a smaller number of pupils in a class. Improving sports facilities within schools. More money for extra-curricular activities. Also, money towards training teachers to handle pupils with learning difficulties.

    Foreign aid of the development sort. For domestic education and welfare spending should be increased by an increase in top rate of tax. More development aid would give millions of ppl a better life.

    I believe government should be as small as possible so I'd also cut welfare spending (only give it to those who need it) and privatise the NHS. Then give the people an even bigger tax cut after spending some on scientific research (progress through technology).

    No that's not fair on the people who've worked hard to get good salaries. why should they be taxed so much more than people with lower salaries?
