    'Cameron accused Labour and student leaders of "peddling fantasy politics" by "pretending there's a bottomless pit of money we can dig into".' Well actually, Dave, there is. All you have to do is collect some of the £120-billion that is owed to the Treasury by tax dodgers.




    Seems like this would be "real change".

    I doubt there's a real source, who can you put a figure on Bankers tax evasion?
    I reckon it's a big number though :rolleyes:

    120 billion is hardly bottomless.

    Eh?

    Its the equivalent of a 12%+ rise in VAT AND 15p+ on the basic rate of income tax

    Thats pretty bottomless...

    So if £120 billion is deemed to be a bottomles pile of money then that means the government's total expenditure is 5.7 bottomles piles of money per year. Looks like a bit of a limit to me.

    Well since a bottomless pit is impossible that point seems rather mute.
