Why can’t we afford public services…

without further increases in taxation?

A survey in today’s Independent on the public’s attitude to globalisation was simply a report on what people think. It has nothing to do with whether they are right or wrong. The result is simply a means of pushing a newspaper’s particular policy, and if going by some of the comments, not a particularly successful one either.

That there is a crisis in our public services is consistently blamed on an increasingly aged and aging population. That it has increased by many millions of immigrants together with  the strain it imposes is never admitted by the progressives. Because they are then faced with the problem of explaining, if immigration is so good for the economy, why can we no longer afford to pay for these services without massive tax increases?
