Silly Treasury Man!

It appears Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has said there will be no unfunded giveaways in next week’s budget; tell me a budget where there have been- ever. Money doesn’t appear from nowhere; it has to come from somewhere; so all so-called giveaways are funded by somebody; which is why we have to pay taxes and why I don’t mind paying high taxes with three provisos-

  1. The tax revenue is used to create work, keep people in work and support the a decent benefits system for those unfortunate enough to be unable to work
  2. The money left in my pocket gives me a reasonable standard of living
  3. The rich pay a fair share relative to their wealth and income

I do worry about a Treasury Department that makes such a silly statement; every working person who has ever paid taxes or claimed benefits knows that what governments give with the left hand, they take away with the right.
