Gov throws away £101bn, by Stephen Spurdon

“Every household in Britain has £4,000 taken each year in tax and thrown away on useless projects and other waste by the Government. That is the accusation in the book, ‘The Bumper Book of Government Waste 2008′. The authors Matthew Elliott, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance and historian Lee Rotherham have totted up the annual waste bill and found it comes to a staggering £101bn. This is an amazingly thorough piece of work, going in to every branch of government.”
