Last year we sent a FoI request to HMRC, which resulted in the revelation that British men collectively pay 72% of the income tax collected in the UK, and women only 28%. I wrote an article for AVfM titled, ‘He who pays the piper, calls the tune. Or does he?’:
90% of homeless people are men – in part because so much social housing is taken up by women choosing to be single mothers, who then keep their accommodation for life – and government support for homeless people is woeful. Government support for male victims of domestic violence is close to non-existent. So who does the government deem worthy of support from taxpayers? Women such as Sophi Trenchall, the Managing Director of Divine Chocolate. A supporter cut the following out of a downmarket newspaper last Sunday:
Not only does the government use taxpayers’ money to help a woman sell more of her company’s chocolates abroad, it then uses yet more of their money to pay a trashy newspaper to advertise the fact, presumably to send the subliminal message to its readers that the government is supportive of women.
