Perceived taxes more left-wing than actual

OLD but gold

Welfare is too low, right socialists?

interesting they misreport data before your eyes
“Here, the pie chart changes once again, with increased amounts going on health and education and reduced amounts going on the EU budget and government administration, relative to perceptions.”
by comparing ideal to perceived, not actual


Do they really want increases in health and education, if your control is their own delusions?

Compared to ACTUAL spending:

Health -2%
Welfare -15%
Education -1%
State pensions -1%
Debt interest -3%
Defence +3%
Criminal justice +2%
Transport +3%
Business +1%
Housing +3%
Gov Admin +1%
Environment +3%
Culture +2%
Foreign aid +1%
EU protection racket +2%

“I don’t think they found out the actual figures in between the two questions.”
Blind leading the blind.

Note: donut charts are used to lie about taxes and make them seem less.

If they were actually honest…

End the welfare cliff!

One response to “Perceived taxes more left-wing than actual

  1. I like your chart far better. LAWL

    However, I have to quibble my dearest dearie… On the cited page, the third comment is “Where does corporate welfare fit in?” So you may need to make another pie slice and jam that in there ‘cuz they have a point.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
