    General taxation is supposed to pay for policing, road maintenance, hospitals and benefits etc. So with all these cuts to spending, but not to how much tax we pay, then what is the government doing with the money no longer being spent on these things?
    Why doesnt everyone in the land stand up for themselves by not paying tax? Obviously its the employers that pay our taxes on our behalf so its only they who can choose to not hand over the tax. My point is that whenever there is a shortfall in standards, budget is always to blame.

    Its either paying off or servicing debt.

    Most employers like to pay theur tax becayse its illegal no to and they prefer to be out of jail so they can make money.

    Perhaps do a quick search and you will see where the money goes. most of its on pensions and healthcare. There also the fact that shortfalls can easily come from getting less revenue in becayse the economy is not performing as well.

    They cut spending and then cut taxes for the richest, so it balances out.

    The only reason the deficit has gone down at all is because we came out of a recession, but the Tories are good at manipulating idiots.

    I would be interested to hear why you feel the current government is favouring the 'rich'.
