Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    A bunch of wealthy Germans launched a petition and no fukcer signed it

    The Goverment couldn't accept it because every whacko with a petition would want theirs accepting and the whole of Europe would be full of MP's swinging from lampost's

    The wealthy Germans get to keep all their money whilst pointing out they offered to help out by paying higher taxes

    Gordon wets himself and offers them a chance to live in the U.K.
  4. That sounds really funny in a comedy German accent.

    There is nothing strange about ze Germans:
  5. 44 signatures? wow , so significant, a real movement :roll:
  6. I feel like a rich person cos I was taxed to the bo locks, like everyone else in UK, until last year when I went offshore. I have paid me National Elf up to date and qualify for a full pension. The straw that broke the camels back for me was when that cu nt brown started taxing insurance. My insurance is costly enough, but being insured means that if I become a statistic, I am covered by an insurance policy and don't become a charge on the state. So the cu nt charges me tax on that. Stuff him.
  7. The bird being licked by the dog - outstanding!
  8. I seem to remember an MP (Labour I think) saying she wouldn't mind paying higher taxes when it put to her that you can pay the tax office more than you have to she went strangely quiet
  9. Typical Socialist, full of shite. Spending other people's money is easy, but you're a bit more carefull when it's your own....

    Maybe one of the boffins could work it out, but I would guess that by the time you have paid Incone tax, NIC's and have added all the stealth taxes, that your average Joe with Milf and 2 kids and is a home owner probably pays 65-70% tax anyway.

    It would be interesting (scary) to know...
  10. The Adam Smith Institute states: “Tax Freedom Day 2009 falls on 14 May.”

    In fact, that is baloney as its calculation is made from 1 January. The actual date is sometime in late August as the tax year starts on 1 April.

    Sure, it probably makes no difference to the result but calculating from 1 January makes the result sound better.
