I am feeling a bit angry today about the state of our country and the amount our government tramples all over us and robs us!
Here is a list of some of the things we get taxed for here in the U.K:

Income tax
Fuel duty tax
Value added tax
Council tax
Excise duty
Inheritance Tax
Stamp Duty
Insurance Premium Tax
Airport Tax
Capital Gains Tax
National Insurance
Pension tax
TV Licence
Toll roads


This is just the list of ones I could find. There are also many stealth taxes too.

Now, how on earth are we supposed to afford all that when so many are unemployed through redundancy etc Or, in the case of the lucky ones with jobs, on rubbish salaries?

I hate this country these days.

It's the same way in the U.S., which is really a sad situation to be in.

It just annoys me so much. In this day and age we shouldn't struggle just to keep our kids warm and fed. I mean, we even get taxed on sanitary products for petes sake!
I read somewhere (I forget where) that approx 60-80% of our average yearly income goes out in taxes and the cost of living. But the government still insists that we are a skint nation and that is why taxes keep being hiked. Where did all the money go??
