The numbers game

In a self indulgent friday departure from matters IP here is a puzzler for you. The BoyGeorge (go on have a look) has managed to raise more tax than any labour government ever in the midst of the worst economic circumstances since the 1930's - £530 billion. This from a Conservative Chancellor.

This might help to explain the current flatlining in the UK economy rather than the bleating going on about headwinds from Europe.

Rather than leaving the private sector to grow instead we have the well oiled machine that is central govt hoovering up all the cash & making decisions re; allocation of capital. Greatest hits include the NHS IT system, Air Craft carriers, HS2 and other vanity projects too numerous to mention.

Is BoyGeorge Gorgeous Gordon in disguise - someone should be told.
