    Same here.

    I gain a lot from reduced income tax, but loose about half that in extra NIC. But I'm still ahead. It won't make me rich but it almost covers my council tax.

    It's now official; it's cheaper to by drugs than it is a half pint of beer! Got to pay for the wars somehow, I suppose:frown1:

    Weird world indeed. I remember a senior Police Officer once saying that he would prefer kids to get stoned than drunk - maybe this is social engineering.

    But what a non event, a mere distraction. I thought that the shit was going to hit the fan in the global economy and we're taxing Chelsea tractors, even that as a bumpkin in the deepest countryside pisses me off, because we actually need these vehicles.
