‘Shocking’ revelation finds $5.3tn subsidy estimate for 2015 is greater than the total health spending of all the world’s governments

I don’t really know what to say about this – but I can’t say I’m surprised.

It might pose the question – why are certain factions are so hard on denying climate change, despite evidence to the contrary? You might extend this idea to other points, but not in this post. 😀

To hit the point closer to home, isn’t this is all money that we could feasibly use to fund the NHS? Education?  And to what end is all this money being subsidised?

As I’m sure I mentioned in a previous post (not to point the finger directly, but to make a general point), there’s a reason the party is called ‘Conservative’ – why would you want to change a system that keeps you rich and in charge?
