    How much does the UK...?

    How much does the UK raise in direct/indirect taxation every year? Add VAT, fuel duty, etc and I'm imagining it would be a colossal amount. Does anyone know of sources for these figures? What about its expenditure...where does it all go? Is there a breakdown somewhere? I would suspect that given the amount of money raised, we ought to have first class services in fields of health, transport, etc., but very rarely does that happen here. For e.g., I think road tax alone raises around £50 billion per year, but less than 10% of it goes back into the infrastructure.

    Your thoughts please.
