Money. Drain. Down?

Some might find this of interest: Waste mounts as £100 billion web of quangos duplicates work

Which leads to this report

Amazing the mutual chums who emerge in there. Not just the overlapping entities but those who exist to support the money they get and disperse.

Some staggering information in the report you linked to:-

Government today spends 45.1 per cent of Britain’s GDP, employs nearly 20 per cent of the UK workforce and regulates or provides almost every service available to UK citizens.

45% of total GDP spent on Gov and 20% of all employees work for our Gov!

And we wondered where all the tax revenues were going!
