Shocking cost to the taxpayer!

Last year the cost of financing the debt of the SNCF of €14.4 billion was €900 per taxpayer. This includes subsidies for day to day running and the cost of the special social security contract for the SNCF staff.
Oh, and the long term SNCF debt thus far now runs to over €50 billion.

When does it stop? No wonder the bottom half of the nation are wondering why they are not any better off. Even the most ardent left wing clown cannot blame the rich for this one!

How much French tax do you pay?


The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

More than enough, my old soldier and, unfortunately, likely to pay more!
You, on the other hand pay a bit too if I remember your occasional growls?

Re: Shocking cost to the taxpayer!

I assume this banter was what Paul was alluding to. I suspect that soldier was not an appropriate response.

From your PM some time ago to I which did not reply I was astonised to see how little you had any moral fibre. Can I post your PM?

Sorry Sue.

My name is Richard , not Dick or any variant.
Dick is a crude name for a functional organ that is used as a derogatory name. Any reference to me as Dick will be met with equivalent response. Strange that it cant be policed better.

Too much love of the Inquisition but then why not.

My PM refers to one of yours baiting me for not screaming Palestinian injustice on the rooftops. Here it is

Re: racism
Having spent time in the Middle East and taught young Palestinians who had the scars and in some cases bullets of battle on or in their bodies, I am very pro Palestinian but prefer to keep quiet about it as there is little that I can do to change the situation.

By the way, if you feel strongly, why arent you out there helping the damaged instead of attempting to turn this Forum into a prison cell.

Being an ex NHS consultant is not, I am sure a qualification for being in the mix on this forum. Ask yourself if you are really comfy here, given you only joined because your wife was shocked by something.

Soldier, by the way is perhaps the best educated member of this forum and well able to take care of himself. And, no,
I have never met him or her.

Re: Shocking cost to the taxpayer!

Just an bit of your post. I will post your whole response tomorrow unless you will do it yourself. You have said enough however.

My OH did go there but as she is handicapped it is not possible. Me also - prat. We probably would not be allowed there, but you must know that.

Anyway, you are changing the main subject of why I dislike your silly posts and your total lack of moral.
