Wile it is Miserly on one hand on the other it makes sense ..It could be a mine field Catering for unknown people It's not as simple as giving them a packed lunch as they enter ,you'd have to consider if people have Allergies,Food intolerances,can't eat certain foods due to Religious beliefs etc .

So taking all of those things into account it's much easier and safer to tell people to bring their own food if they want to eat
Why they'd want to go and stand there like Extras ,just so the Grounds don't look empty of TV I don't know ...

Even though it's under-catered......


I know, Honest :wink: And I said right at the start that's so miserly and a right royal cock-up.

If we are only talking about income tax then you would only have paid millions if you were in the £90,000 plus pay band for at least 40 years. But if you include NI and all the other taxes then average earnings of £50,000 plus would likely work out to paying millions in tax. Depending on how long you’ve worked consistently.


don't make me shoot your puppy.

£50k x 40 years = £2 million.

how can you pay millions in taxes on £2m earnings?


£2 million x 40% income tax = £800,000.
Then you add on the other taxes paid whenever you spend any money, VAT etc and add on the NI contributions. That should take it over a million (not millions) in 40 years, or 45 years average if you’re a bloke.

I assume my puppy is safe now. :ooer:


it's not looking good for the pup ...

Kensington Palace indicated this week that some refreshments and snacks would be available, but declined to elaborate.

Maybe they're starting to rethink this crappy bit of PR... :dunno:

I would not cross the road to see any of them - although I have a grudging respect for Phil and Liz.

Once they go the whole anarchronistic institution should be abolished.

How many times you moved house and paid tax, how much fuel you've put in cars and paid tax, how much VAT you paid over the years, tax on insurance tax on drinking and smoking perhaps, thats just the ones that spring off the top of my head, you are taxed until you squeak you just don't hear it anymore.


Usually doing that sort of thing would really get my juices flowing, but I think I’ll pass tonight.
Maybe tomorrow.

If you earnt on average £25,000 a year for 40 years, you’d have paid over £2 million in income tax alone.


how in fuck does earning £1m over 40 years mean paying over £2m in taxes?


Shit, I’m multitasking and miscalculated :brickwall:

I’ll get back to you after I’ve eaten. :oops:


make sure you have seconds, this could be a long night. :laughing:

You’re not exactly alone though.

Why, after having contributed so much, do you have more ire towards immigrants (who also pay their taxes) than towards those who are rich enough but dodge taxes/ have offshore accounts etc?


Firstly, I don't favour tax dodgers full stop. Secondly, I have no truck with immigrants who pay their way and pay their taxes. Unfortunately, contrary to popular belief amongst your lot, most immigrants don't contribute to our economy. Some do, the higher paid professionals do, they are not in the majority.

I don't know how many more times I have to explain it but paying £1 in tax and national insurance contributes nothing if you are taking £3 back out in tax credits and benefits, its simple arithmatic. Highly paid immigrants are also less likely to be a drain on the services most ordinary people use like say the NHS whereas those non contributing ones are likely to be more of a drain on our services than are ordinary people.

When next you hear someone say that immigrants contribute more to the economy than they take out, get them to break it down they can't or won't because they are all lumped together - if in fact they have any real figures at all.

To simplify it further you go out on night out team handed, your rich mate is paying for everything coz the rest of you are skint. When someone says look after that lot they are loaded - in reality, would that be true or false?


The jury's out...

Who said I paid millions in tax 30 years ago?


i was using lady m's fingers to count on. i should have said 10 years ago like you did earlier - that would put you as paying taxes for approx 30 years then.


Aye thats right, whats the problem? I did do some heavyweight spending, I also earned a lot of money and did a bit of gambling, I don't now.

but I'm still paying tax.


you said it was millions 10 years ago. i'm calculating that meant you'd paid taxes in whatever form for 30 years by that date.

millions means at least £2 million.

£2m/30 years = £66,667 per year. In taxes.

heavyweight spending.


Ok it was if I remember rightly about 1.2 million I estimated about 10 years ago it must be a lot more now.
