So could you live on £25,000 tax free per year? No doubt many of you live on a great deal less than that. Apparently the figure of 25K has been chosen as it is the average wage in the UK.
My argument has always been that it is not high social security benefits that are the problem but people working in jobs that do not pay anything like the national average.

FE Exactly the point I was trying to make albeit not very succinctly. We need kids, the more the merrier. As a side issue and a little off topic I was teaching one of my Thai classes about family trees and as an example to help them I drew up my own family tree. I must have taught them well as one said, Mr Gordon (sounding like Condom hence my moniker)"If your son does not have a boy then there will be no more ** left when he dies as all your other family around the world are girls."
I had never realised that before and as my son is now 40 and showing little inclination to have kids then my family line will indeed be wiped out when he dies. Perhaps I should have done more in support of my own argument.
