My brother, who is a pretty useless specimen, although I love him dearly, has identified his next business venture.
He will be a foster parent.
He will get £400 a week, tax free, for one kid.
"Right, no problem," you say.
I say this. I have two of needing all my money age. So, to give them £400 a week, I need to earn £800. AFTER tax. So that's £1600, near as damn it.
And I then pay tax of £800, a week. And half of that pays for my brother to sit on his arse.
And if you can't see what's wrong with that, you're beyond stupid.
Thanks for reading.
