And this got me to thinking: what have these fuckers been spending our money on for the last decade? No new prisons. No substantial improvement in military kit. No new roads. No improvements in the railways. Nothing substantial in the common weal that I can see at all.
So what have they been doing with the readies then? My best guess is that they've been blowing your money and mine on "social justice", two words that sum up every mealy-mouthed thing that is wrong with this cunt of a country. They've been handing our money out to people they feel deserve it, with the usual mixture of efficiency, even-handedness and generosity that only the state can manage. Said people are of course extremely grateful for our money and spend it wisely. Some of it they've given to the EU. And the EU can do no wrong, can they? They've also chucked huge wedges as starving bankers, famished train operators, the poor waifs at EDS and Crapita and any number of other valuable, useful causes.
And the rest they just pissed up the wall in fatuous wastefulness.
Don't forget that they've also been subsidising the House of Commons bars to the tune of millions of pounds, living high on the hog whilst the taxpayer has been more and more consistently squeezed...
