    We spend far less as a percentage of GDP then the EU average so the misleading term "record spending" is pretty meaningless.

    Another pompous prick who thinks everyone with a different viewpoint is thick.

    He hasn't even got a clear position on Brexit FFS.

    I'm getting 28.8% against 28.6% EU average (Social Protection spending) but a higher than average spend on social protection per capita (which is more important). Far less? You'll need to provide your sources please. Mine are here:

    http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/statistics-explained/index.php/Social_protection_statistics

    I'm also not sure why are measuring against the EU rather than say New Zealand or the US (other than the fact you know France and Scandinavia bump the EU up).

    It's not meaningless in the remotest seeing as we are speaking about the UK only. One would imagine that spending was slashed by the Tories on the NHS and Education from reading this thread. When when look and see that the Tories are spending the same percentage now as Labour did ten years ago on the two then it ends that argument and the EU doesn't need bringing into it.

    Come on Colin, try not to compare apples with lego.

    Based on the current thread poll results (margin of error 1 million percent) it would appear, even in the left wing socialist infested annals of Blue Moon that the conservatives are going to anhiliate the opposition...

    For education, the UK is also well above the EU average and is the highest of the big 5.

    It always amuses me how the left constantly tell everyone how they shouldn't read sections of the media, ie;
    those sections which do not espouse what they believe. You rarely get anyone on here telling them not to read the Mirror,
    unless as a response to the constant tiresome reference to the Mail, Sun etc;
    Plenty want them banned, in true Stalinist style, simply because they hate the fact that nobody wants to read what
    they think people should read.
    There is incessant reference to right leaning press, and that if it weren't for this everyone would follow the true path
    of universal socialism,and if we can shriek and footstamp long enough, the Guardian will eventually put them straight.
