Come the day of the revolution, where will these spongers go ?.

I found the shamelessness of the Home Office's advertisement deeply disturbing. In the past few weeks they have been castigated for sustained incompetence over the repatriation of foreign criminals. Now they are brazenly offering five jobs each with a "substantial six figure salary plus bonus". What do they give the bonus for? Not screwing up?

If they have any sense, they are stashing some away to make a dash for another country!

Now, that's what I call Tax Abuse!

The public service spongers are only part of the story.

The biggest offenders are the rich. They make little or no contribution in taxes and we subsidize their champagne lifestyle.

Take Philip Green, owner of Burton group for example. He avoided a £300 million tax bill because he is a part-time resident of Monaco and therefore not liable for UK taxes. That would build quite a few homes for low paid workers wouldn't it!

How about Prince Charles and the Duchy of Cornwall, exempt from capital gains tax on it's huge property portfolio.

Just a miniscule example of how badly screwed we are in this shitty country.

Roll on the revolution!

I see where you are coming from but I cannot really agree.

I know several senior civil servants and they seem to do very little work at all. In one case, the fellow has someone come in to teach him French in his office (at the tax payers expense). He has no pressure and lives the life of Riley. As we have seen with the recent antics in the Home Office, a politician had to pay for the failure of civil servants. Local authorities are now jumping on the band wagon. They are inventing new job title and adding a nought to their salaries.

The leader of the opposition (irrespective of party) lives a precarious existance and sackings are common. They work long hours and are constantly under the spotlight.

Philip Green

That surely is not the same Phillip Green that throws open the doors to his Monaco Estate to the Blairs each year for a holiday!!!.

Surely our Prime Minister is already reeling from his relationship with Mafia Boss Berlussconi, or maybe not, maybe he is at home with these people.

er...on the subject of tax abusers, what about this one.

John Prescott - Deputy Prime Minister- responsible for ???

1. 134,000 a year salary,

2. chauffeured Jaguar car,

3. grace-and-favour flat at Admiralty Arch

4. official country residence Dorneywood, in Buckinghamshire

5. £104,000 expenses

6. £300,000 cost of houses

7. £600,000 p/a total cost to tax payer

The only saving grace being that at least he has no department to screw up (however, when we're paying approx £600,000 per year that's not much comfort)

Is that both the North and South poles?

In which case I'd want double the money.
