Ray is not interested in common sense. He'd rather rant on about the iniquity of having to contribute to a tax system where the smart, the strong, the young and the healthy have to contribute to the well-being of the less fortunate. He'd rather that all of the latter class were beggars than be fooled by the tiny minority of lazy conmen who fool the system. That is the essence of Tory philosophy - naked greed disguised as the principle of self-sufficiency.Absolutely Raz, glad you agree with me that 2 Health Services, 2Police Forces, 2 sets of civil servants, 2 off everything including two assembley's etc etc etc is a total waste and redressing it would go a long way in addressing your concerns re 'rebalancing the economy' NO?
Your reply on this will be very interesting sir.
