Happy to help:
Chav (or Ned here in Scotland) is a term for working class ne'erdowells.
A Dole Bludger is a term I've not come across before, but apparently it's an Aussie term for people who claim unemployment benefit and never look for a job.

How Does a 9/80 Work Schedule Work Out?

Pippinjack Re:I'd rather have 4/36 (1055 comments)

I agree that UK NI should really be added in, but sales and property taxes - which is what Council Tax and VAT are - aren't income based taxes.
To be really fair, I suppose you would have to look at the total tax burden and also try and quantify what benefits you get back e.g. health care, public transport e.t.c.

  • $8836 - $59788 = 20%
  • $59788+ = 40%
