TBH it is well-known that the NHS needs a 4% annual increase in budget to maintain services.  If taxation is somehow linked to GDP (simplified version, I know) and growth is below that you are going to have a deficit.  Historically this has been paid for by borrowing but we all know that this model is not sustainable.

Thus, unless we increase the amount of tax collected we will probably have tough decisions to make.  E.g. Spend more on health but forgo our state pensions, more on health but tax business more, less on health and get private insurance to pay for the difference (as per the french model), etc, etc.

Putting your head in the sand and doing nothing will just make it worse.

Sorry, but totally wrong. Estimated UK Government borrowing for 2017-18 was ~58bn and actual borrowing ~40bn, where tax receipts were 18bn higher than expected. This was a combination of higher than expected growth, lower social security bills from lower unemployment and record employment, higher than expected wage growth and higher than expected inflation with the resultant taxation fiscal drag.

I wouldn't be happy if my insurance was higher than the value of the car.  ;D

Pure jealousy on your part. You are envious of my magnificent motor car. :P :P

The problem is that you need MUCH more storage to make any significant inroads into your consumption. A colleague of mine did a self-build and fitted a massive tank buried under the garden along with filters and UV treatment.

And, IIRC from my conversation with my old neighbour - a plumber - there are quite strict rules on just how large a tank you are allowed and how much rain water you are allowed to 'steal' from the water companies..

..although that's better than the US, where it is actually illegal to collect rain water in some states (it is considered theft)..
And yet...Yorkshire water charge me for the drainage of my surface water. So...I can't keep it and I have to pay to have it taken away. Sore arse, anyone?  ;D

Last year 160.

This year 193.

A phone call later back to 160 again.

I'm happy enough with that figure for such a valuable, prestigious, and desirable motor car. :)
