- Median weekly income these days is about £497
- Tax freedom day was 30th May
- That's about 41% through the year
- One taxpayer hour is £5.10
- One taxpayer week is £204
- One taxpayer year is £10,600
So when the government spends £1,000,000, it takes about 94 people working for a year.
Thrilling stuff, I'm sure you agree.
