  1. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I think we all do that on here, whilst we tend to look at single issues. You shouldn’t assume that, I was closer to voting Labour than I was Tory in the last election but I’ve not seen enough to believe that the plans are solid yet. I don’t expect personal treatment, I expect a bit more value for my hard earned cash, I don’t know why that’s so hard for you to understand. I do however take on board your explanation on schools value and what they provide per funding, although I still feel the end result is sub standard.
  2. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Absolutely, I’ve said on here numerous times I would. The things that you mentioned earlier that benefit us in a indirect way, that are basically professionals that have benefited from further/higher education, should be doing so without fees imo. We are importing so many people to fill top jobs in this country because education is sub standard from the ground up and we struggle to produce enough quality people. There are holes in the roads which probably costs each taxpayer more in repair bills than it would cost to repair them properly and you try getting the NHS to deal with a minor complaint in an efficient manner. All governments have been shit in my lifetime and none of them have offered more than platitudes to the problems.

    Well it would depend on the quality of that service.
  4. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    This discussion is going in circles and that might hint towards the amount I would pay if I could.
  5. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I acknowledge that but still feel it’s not justified in the amount I pay. Let’s not forget that they pay tax too, ffs.

    It’s like he thinks it’s only Tory voters that are self employed and using accountants.
  7. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I’m not saying I should pay nothing, just less. So answer the question, would you pay less, if you could legally?
  8. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    It would still be the same as tax avoidance. Who is lying about expenses? And who are you to say what justifies a family member being classed as working or not? Do you even have any figures to back up how much this is? Are we talking a handful of rogue self employed or are you tarnishing everyone of them as frauds?
  9. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I’d ask how they are going to achieve that, and I have. So........
  10. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Not really, it’s about if you could reduce your tax bill, would you? That’s where this chain started, I pay what’s required by law and if someone told me I could get tax credits, I would claim them.
  11. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    So you are saying, if HR called you in and said, hey we’ve noticed that in this employment you can get back £300 per year for work clothes as you have provided your own. Sign this form and the HMRC will send you a rebate for the last 5 years, the cheque will be with you in 3 days. You guys would say, no thanks guys I think I pay exactly the right amount in tax cheers?

    The options in this regard are pretty limited.
  13. The joke thread

    Every year hundreds of kids are shipped off to mime school, never to be heard from again.
  14. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    What they do with it when the get it is the exactly the point I’m making. Value for money from my tax spend is poor. I have a company car so the tax is about £2k per annum.
  15. The joke thread

    My mother-in-law bought a talking parrot, but she took it back a week later. "This parrot hasn't said anything!" she complained. "I haven't had a ****ing chance yet!" replied the parrot.
