Today in the United Kingdom the new tax year starts. In about 148 working days from today not only will the United Kingdom have a new government, but the average UK citizen will have spent all his working time that he or she needs to spend in order to pay his (or her) tax to the government. This is according to the Adam Smith Institute. Their figures mean the average Briton working for five twelfths of the time for other people and only seven twelfths of the time for himself or herself. This is quite impressive generosity on the part of the average Briton.
