All foreign aid - if we haven't got enough for ourselves why are we giving it to others?
MP's Salaries - if they can claim so much on expenses they don't need to be paid so much...they may be more inclined to work for us if they get paid the same as us.
Faith schools - why should i pay for someone elses superstition?
Nuclear detterent - why not go for cheaper nuke warhead cruise missiles rather than ICBM's? Can still be sub launched, and more versatile if they actually do have to be used. Who would we nuke with an ICBM that we couldn't with a Tomahawk or similar?

Clearly you have plenty of money then. Not everyone has a lot of money, myself and may partner get by with what we aren by the extra £80 pm is very very useful for saving for our child for his future. There are plenty of other things that can be cut. Here is my list...
1. NHS treatment for gender confused people. - Agree if they want it pay for it!!!
3. Foriegn Aid (at the present it should be suspended until we recover, or at least cut back slightly) YES!
4. Leave the Eurozone (Lord knows how much we spend or are loosing because of this joke). Why did we ever join...............
5. Minister expenses (you work in london, put your reciepts for travel in like evryone else who gets expenses does, you already make a fortune. If not and your so in love with changing the UK, MOVE TO LONDON). Not going to happen anymore - addressed and dealt with.......................
6. 1 year maximum for people on Job Seekers allowence (There are plenty of jobs out there, just look harder, if your that desperate you'll take any employment). Really........send us links BIG MAN!
7. Stop paying consultants £85,000 to £110,000 per year. Even a 2% pay decrease might buy a new few MRI scanners - GREEDY DOCS........SHAME
8. Stop using dentists from Poland to do our Weekend On Call. (one dentist in Aberdeen lives in Poland, he flies over here on a friday morning and flies home again on a monday, once a month and gets paid £3500 for the weekend. This is what the Government did sold of all our goods.........alone we stand!
9. Stop paying GP's £100 or whatever it is to write (actually only sign) a letter for a patient. Yeap right and he tells you "no go then Mister"........you did well there
Need i really go on???? The list is endless
