Ian - Actually out of the two of us I think you'll find you are the one paying less ££ tax.
Also, Ill bet in the last year you had at least one sick day? Holiday? Pension contribution matched by your employer (come to think of it Ill bet your pension contributions come out of your gross pay... nice little tax dodge there).
Ill bet you expect your employer to pay you for public holidays too.. Getting paid for days that your not working? You absolute fucking scrounger.
See. Works both ways.
