    Disgusting amount of waste. But the solution is clear.

    how much I (a working migrant) get in child benefit = £82 a month; how much we put into the system - council tax (£120 a month) and taxes from salaries - me: £500 a month; other half - £1k a month. Is the daily fail tabulating those numbers into their 'chart', e.g. monies going in AND out? or is just the child benefit noted, e.g. money going out?

    ps. also remember - the daily fail does have creative accounting interpretation skills that far exceed the reality.

    You are not an EU citizen as I recall. Or am I wrong? In any case you are a welcome worker/contributor.

    Their creative accounting skills are probably nowhere near as good as Osborne's, HMRC's,Google's, Starbucks, and all the other companies that fiddle tax. Oh sorry that's all of them.

    MrSK is dual Irish and UK citizen, but I settled here under the EU regulations.

    In any case you are a welcome worker/contributor....:D

    Polls measure a narrow time margin, average polls are dubious as well. On the day we shall see.

    Or we could also look at the cost of paying interest on government borrowing. :eek:

    That sort of puts things into perspective.

    I wouldn't since it's the National Centre for Social Research funded by the EU.

    What anyone wants now is besides the point now the referendum has taken place. It's up to the Government.

    But out of interest, how would you like to see them address the issues you've outlined above?

    Vladimir doesn't do answers: he just chucks bricks though windows and runs away laughing.
