Up comming General election and Government waste

At last a General Election. Tressa May should have called this in October last year, now we have a chance to get rid of all those MPs who want us to stay in the EU when the referendum was quite decisive the majority of the Population of this country are fed up with the petty meddling and stupid regulations imposed on us by a bunch of wankers in Belgium. So I will be voting for the conservative party but not for the MP who wanted to and probably still wants to stay. This will be a great chance to cleanse the party of all those self-important wankers who think they know what we want better than we do.  So put them on the dole (not that they will end up there ) but it’s time to send the message to those present and future MPs  that they need to pay attention to what we want, We are there employers we pay  for their life style. pensions, expenses and everything in between. Which is why anyone who wants us out of the EU, shouldn’t vote Labour or Liberal, since they think we are all too stupid to be allowed to vote, because according to them we voted wrong. I have researched and compiled some figures that seem boring on the surface until you realise the sheer scale or the amount squandered on crackpot schemes, even the money wasted by local councils is our money, and that waste is sizeable but by Government standards it’s just pocket money compared with Whitehall.                                                                 So we are leaving Europe at last let’s make it as easy as possible and get rid of MPs who don’t want what we want, just like useless bad employees, sack them all, and maybe what follows will be more inclined to ask us what we want and carry out our wishes. So please vote out anyone who wants or wanted us to stay in the EU because those lying  self-important  twats will say they have changed their opinion about BREXIT when they haven’t. Let’s make it as easy as possible to get the best deal.                             AUDIT OFFICE FIGURES OF GOVERNMENT WASTE OVER THE LAST 5 YEARS                                                                                                                                               26 Billion In two years on computer systems

THE TOTAL OF THE ABOVE GOVERNMENT FIGURES IS OVER   £246 BILLION £2251 MILLION  
       
 Likewise the TaxPayers’ Alliance has identified cuts that it says could save about £120billion – effectively wiping out the UK’s budget deficit – without ‘closing a single hospital, firing a single teacher or disbanding a single regiment’.
The organisation has collated a list of ‘ludicrous examples of wasteful spending’ – including the Ministry of Defence paying £22 for a light bulb and the Arts Council squandering £95,000 on an installation comprising a skip covered in yellow  lights.                                                                                                                                                 Some £19,000 was spent by Cotswold District Council on hiring a ‘motivational magician’ to boost staff morale, while Labour-run Durham Council gave chiefs a £12,000 clothing allowance, which Prime Minister David Cameron derided as ‘Geordie Armani’.
Ministers and officials ate £3 million worth of biscuits in 2011-2012 and spent £45 million on taxis to move prisoners and staff around the country.                                                                                                                                              More than £20 billion is lost through public sector fraud and £15 billion on duplicated procurement across Whitehall departments and councils.                                                                                                                                            The Home Office spent £427,000 on rubber bullets police are not even allowed to use.                                                                                                                                         Crawley Council Spent £5,070 on 12,200 hot drinks from vending machines for employees, when the equivalent number of tea bags would have cost just £200.                                                                                                                                                 The alleged wasteful spending - a sixth of the total government expenditure - is more than the whole of the NHS budget and five times the amount spent by the Ministry of Defence.                                                                                                                              A spokesman for alliance said: ' This equates to a massive £4,500 a year for every household in the UK - enough to give every family in the land a luxury holiday or pay their household energy bills three times over.'                                                                                                                                               In its annual Big Bumper Book of Government Waste, the TaxPayers’ Alliance recommends a number of major reforms to claw back cash, including shaving £53billion off the pay and pensions packages of public sector workers. This is the amount it claims these workers are being overpaid compared with the private sector average.                                                                                                                                          ‘Nearly £120billion of taxpayers’ money was wasted or spent on useless projects by the Government in 2011-12,’ the report states.                                                                                                                                                We have identified and listed hundreds of examples of spending by politicians and bureaucrats that can be cut without closing a single hospital, firing a single teacher or disbanding a single regiment.’                                                                                                                                    According to the research – which the pressure group said is based on official statistics, independent reports and media coverage – £25billion was wasted that year through inefficient public sector procurement and poor use of outsourcing, while £20.3billion was lost through public sector fraud.                                                                                                                                         About £5billion was paid out in benefits to claimants with an income in excess of £100,000, while £1.2billion was paid out in an annual subsidy to foreign farmers through the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy.
