Just got this e-mail from the UK - guess we have to be quiet compared to what they are going through when I said I was paying $3.39.9/gal for gas



Thats real cheap Beryl compared to here,i think here we pay $12 a gal. 72% tax on petrol here,even more in Ireland! Cigarettes are $11 a pack of 20 here ,i think that's why we have higher wages than you over there,but the cost of living is so much higher. Thats why when i visit the US i go with empty cases and buy like crazy when i am there.I got 2 pairs of Levi's in the US for $70,over here the exact same jeans for 2 would cost me $200. So you think you have it tough come over here and pay our prices Hun! We had Donald Trump on a chat show here not so long back and his exact words were," In America i am a very rich man,but over here i am a pauper!" Yep things are real dear over here hun ,so if you come to visit you have to take that into concideration.Mainland Europe is a lot cheaper than here.The most expensive countries to visit are Ireland ,Norway,Denmark,Germany and the UK. My wages are taxed by 22%,my inheritance was taxed at 35%! It is just so ridiculous over here Beryl,but yet we put up with it?? Mad totally mad! For example, we purchase a vehicle(we pay tax on it) we have to buy insurance(you pay tax on it) you have to buy road tax to drive on the road.Then you are taxed on the petrol and oil you stick in it,if you need to have a repair done(you pay tax on it) If you go to the Supermarket you are taxed on the food,in simple terms we are a country of tax Beryl and it really grinds my gears! Sorry for the rant Hun,but sheesh i hate the tax system of this country,why the hell people want to come and live here from foreign countries i will never know? Its all barmy!
