“The grim realisation about the true cost of the fast failing political construct and artificial 'United' Kingdom:

"Fuel duty is to be frozen, benefits squeezed and pension pots raided as the economy continues to flounder, George Osborne has announced."

"The Chancellor, in his mini-budget, revealed that he is scrapping the planned 3p hike in fuel duty set for January and will also postpone April's rise.

The move is aimed at easing the pressure on struggling workers and families, but it was a rare piece of good news in an otherwise bleak Autumn Statement.

Mr Osborne warned there are no "miracle cures" for the economy as he admitted austerity will now have to last up to 2018, well into the next parliament.

He was also forced to concede that the Government is set to miss its target of reducing debt by 2015 and that slashing the deficit will take longer.

And he revealed that the economy is now forecast to shrink by 0.1% this year - compared to the 0.8% growth predicted just nine months ago."

The UK - time for a change! Time for it to go. (Taxman100 is away until after Christmas)

    They are even sending their little army home as they can't afford the heating bill! The United Kingdom - you really couldn't make it up so why not let it fall apart? Kernow bys vyken!

    Our taxes have killed the innocent majority in Iraq. Our taxes fight the corporate wars in Afghanistan and increased opium production that causes misery and crime on our streets. Our taxes fund the war against ''terrorism'', drone strikes killing innocent children, ensuring the war against ''terrorism'' is eternal, never mind Al Qaeda, if someone kills your friends or family another ''terrorist'' is born. We cannot extradite ''terrorists'' because of torture yet we're complicit in torture and rendition. When will we wake up from this lie that we are all living?
