I would say the NHS, but lots of funding for that comes from the sale of cigarettes.
And funding hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers to a better level of comfort than most tax payers.
Philth you obvously have a very polarised and incorrect of what happens to real Asylum seekers.
Micb goes Off Topic for a sec........
Our almost none of our taxes go to people who seek political Asylum.
Asylum-seekers are totaly mistreated here, people who seek asylum come from a country that is at war, they have been forced out of their home/country and need proctection and help.
What do we do, we don't help them we lock them up in a detention center (yes they are like a consentration camp and the guards only know one communication method; the use of a baton) our socaty have huge prejudices against them because of crappy news papers slamming BS storys to the public.
A few facts:
The number of refugees that aply to Brittan each year is a tiny 0.15 percent of the population!!!!!
Britan is not over crowded, nearly 60 million people live here and the birth rate is falling.
There are 753,188 empty homes in Brittain according to the governments own figures.
Immigrant workers contribute 2.5 billion a year to the economy.(that is no small thing)
People who seek Asylum are not allowed to work here untill they get refugee status which is very hard to do.
That is probably a good thing.
Less children = the win.

/me aplauds micb
the car im buying off my dad has jsut gone to porstemouth & back & did a easy 66mpg crusign at 70-75 miles a hour & is good for 40+ torn driving
not bad for a rover 218 1.9 diesel
I have been trying to drive more fuel efficently recently, I find it hard to do though, the car feels good when accelerating.
I had a bit of fun the other day I was driving to pick up my brother, I got to on to a two lane one way system, to my left there was this quite old but good condition VW Golf GTI, I could see he wanted a bit of fun so I floored third gear, pulled up to 52 dropped the Volvo into 4th and continued accelerating, surprisingly he was having a hard time passing me, he eventually did pass me but as we were getting closer to traffic his lane had to slow, luckly mine was clear so I nipped past him and gave him a nod.
i get 1-12 MPG in my Tahoe. all depending on my driving. costs over $40 to fill but i get free gas. Ultra 94 all the way!
Just filled up yesterday - last tank worked out at 47.5mpg. Combination of long but relatively slow journeys (55-60mph), and next to no city driving.
40-45mpg on a 1.2 Petrol Corsa.
30 ish from my Sierra 2000E and between 4 and 40 from my Westfield depending on how I drive it!
oo...according to some rough figures :
constant 30mph = 42.6mpg
constant 40mph = 41.5mpg
constant 50mph = 35.6mpg
constant 60mph = 31.4mpg
constant 70mph = 27.3mpg
constant 80mph = 25.3mpg
constant 90mph = 22.2mpg
On the track = 19-23mpg (average 60-120mph)
That's a two litre 16v SOHC engine with twin carbs
What engine you got in there?
i didnt even think that was possible. oh well. learn somthing new everyday.
it's the dolomite sprint engine - first 16v production engine in a British saloon
16 valves all running off a single cam. Really boosted power, but without the complication of 2 cams (obviously )
That's a nifty valvetrain
I really don't know the fuel consumption of my R/C car, but assume it's pretty low, seeing as it weighs like 2kg
erm, im getting about 12mpg atm, and im thinking of adding a turbo...
oh well, one day i'll be able to afford a 200 tdi
So you've a Land-Rover then BradfordPimp?
