I work for the local council in a school - no discounts :( I used to work for Novatech and we got almost anything at 'cost' price - was a nice little extra :)

Come off it you love the fact that your paying for them to have a good life and you must be happy in the knowledge they are breeding for the next generation of scroungers with their 10 children. Who in turn will knock out another 10 each and so the cycle goes on

You're right, every time I get my hugely disappointing paycheck, the knowledge of the happiness i bring to others brings tears to my eyes.

Well, something brings tears to my eyes.

I think its happiness knowing your doing the right thing....
I also love ALL tax (especially fuel) its good to know we can fund our governments projects of throwing money at projects 'for a laugh', donating to countries (who in 20 years time will try and bomb us) and so we can fight wars with the enemy that live thousands of miles away so we can get oil,...which in turn we can pay more tax for....
Makes you proud to be British

Oh yes, big fan of fuel tax. It was far too cheap back when it was 85p a litre. I much prefer £1.15.

It's that lovely Gordon Brown and his merry men. Gotta love him.

Seriously though, I'm 24 and I'm in danger of becoming a Tory, I never thought this possible.

Yes -I think that might be going a little far seeing as the BNP are insane racists, but I agree we need a harsher alternative to Labour - basically a party who don't reward people for being lazy and having dozens of children, and don't let thousands of immigrants into the country without being more selective about their skills.

Lovely idea but I'm not sure I have enough money to start a political party - the government is stealing it all!

...and over half of my council tax goes to pay not only your salary, but your gold plated pension, while most other companies have a pension shortfall. all courtesy of Gordon Brown and his £80 billion raid on company pension schemes!

I pay over £100 a month for my pension, and i'm on a low income bracket. I'm not chuffed to bits with it TBH. I won't be staying in Local Government for long, there just isn't the opportunity for development you get within private companies. So it really is swings and roundabouts.

Edited to add:
And at least I am paying a pension. Most people my age these days are not, as they are thinking about the now and failing to plan for the future, and are relying on the state to sort them out when they finally get to retirement age.

They will be nothing left for us from the goverment, so better start a pension NOW!

Exactly. Although as a recent graduate still scraping out of the bottom of my overdraft I do hate seeing over £100 each month go somewhere I can't get at it, I know that my parents are now getting to the age where they're glad they have pensions. When speaking to my friends about it I was appalled that none of them were in pension schemes - if you don't start paying in at 25 and pay in for 40 years, you won't even get the maximum out as far as I understand.
