If it's tax payer money that could be re-allocated into schools and hospitals.... well that's another question entirely.    



* and before any raises this, the National Lottery is just another tax.

Lottery is not just another tax. Voluntary versus compulsory. I've never played the lottery and never will. Tax on the other hand. I pay income tax, corporation tax, value added tax, fuel tax, council tax..........

It's indeed a voluntary tax for the lower echelons of society.  

I also pay those taxes you cite- out of equal obligation to your good self.  

Somewhere further up the food chain it seems they also become somewhat voluntary too....

Maybe make all tax a bit more like the lottery - a free premium bond or lotto ticket with every hundred quid tax paid. :-)

By not unreasonable value, I meant the the money they spend for what they actually do. Whether what they do has value is another question  Wink
