Tax Freedom Day - At Last!

Congratulations to my fellow Brits!

From Sunday, you will be working solely for yourselves and will no longer have to pay for Gordon's value-for-money bureaucracy.

Don't mean to rub it in, but for Australians Tax Freedom Day fell on April 25th, five days earlier, even, than in the US.

Oh well, at least you don't live in Sweden. They will not be free until August 8th!

Some perspective - in 1910, the Tax Freedom Day in the US was reached on January 19th.

My, hasn't the government grown over the years.
