Did anyone ask you
Taxation is a very emotive topic, The USA was born out of a taxation argument, we the public have always been taxed in some way or another, the UK even had a daylight tax
Today we are still taxed - on just about every aspect of our lives and, theoretically, we are supposed to have some say in how the money that is taken from us is spent.
we all know that this bargain between the citizen and the state is largely ignored by the state therefore the state does this kind of thing:-
£5 million to be given to Islamic Reliefs Ramadan appeal, did anybody ask you if you wanted to donate to this "Charity" - nobody asked me.
Jehangir Malik, Islamic Relief’s UK Director, said: "We are delighted to announce support from the Department for International Development's UK Aid Match scheme for our Ramadan appeal. The Government will match the public donations we receive pound for pound up to £5 million, which means that our supporters can double their donations and we can double the impact of our work to support poor communities and lift people out of poverty."
We are supposed to be broke as a country - this is what we are all told, therefore VAT increases- food prices go up - we all pay more in indirect taxation and the government gives it away to a Muslim charity that only looks after Muslims - the charity will no doubt state that it is multicultural - we all know the truth however.
£5 million may not be a lot of money by today's standards, football clubs pay much more than that for a brain dead footballer, but that is not the point, my money, your money is being given to an organization that funds the spread of Islam and all that goes with it.
How many surgical operations could £5 million pay for, MOD budgets are being cut and our servicemen are being sacked, I am sure they could use £5 million, but no our government gives it to a bunch of Camel jockeys to use for the benefit of even more.
This money will go into funding Mosques and Madrassa some will no doubt find it's way to funding the global jihad that Islam is waging.
DID ANYBODY ASK YOU IF YOU WANTED TO DONATE TO SUCH CAUSES - THEY DID NOT ASK ME
