Where your money goes

excellent representation.

illustrates nicely that actually the MOD gets a significant chunk of tax payers money 4th largest departmental spend after DWP, health and schools. And significantly more than home office and police for salaries

also shows that 7 times more people are on the sick than on dole!

i note that scotland gets a £31bn slice, doesanybody know if they also get a slice of the other departments not annotated under devolved spending eg benefits?

I take it this is central government spending, not local? I would have expected Police salaries to be as high as the MoD or near to it, yet the entire police budget is less than our salaries?

Look at the Tw*ts claiming benifit!!!! Force them into the army, not necessarily as soldiers; may some of them could become moving targets...... Its just a thought.

Good question, why when there are good jobs going in the armed forces do the employments people not ask if they've applied for the forces?

Chav " I can't find any work!"
Benefits clerk "Have you applied for a job with the army?"
"err no."
"Oh well here's the address of the ACIO, turn up or no benefits!"

I think Police costs come out of local government which in turn comes from both local sources AND central government
Aha! Lies, Damned lies and statistics... Wonder if the same can be said of NHS funding?
No, NHS funding is all central. PCTs and hospital trusts are allocated money directly from government via the DoH.

And the MoD get nothing :|

£36bn - one of the lowest in there :S
disagree, for the size of our armed force, its a reasonably large amount. However, i agree that other departmental spending is obscene in areas

How the MOD budget is managed (badly) is another thing. The EP is has been a disaster with FRES and super carriers absorbing a disproportionate amount versus capability, and don't forget, UORs and Ops, pre-PR08, were from the CPF.

I think the 'atlas' has been over-simplified (eg Ops spending being shown against MOD spends) and there are some omissions, eg, where's foreign office?
