Did anyone else get one? I have only had the one ever. It gave you a complete break down of every penny of the TAX/NI you paid that year and where it went.
I don’t remember ever receiving one.
I’d imagine Leavers will be split amongst two groups with that though. One group would say “even 1p wud b 2 much ITS R MONEY!!” and the other group would say it was all lies and we actually pay far more than the government would ever dare to admit.
I did think it could be propaganda at the time as I received mine just after The Conservatives won that general election, and the EU contribution is listed at the very top. However that BBC article dates back to 2014
But the TUC has already dismissed this as "party political propaganda masquerading as neutral information".
It said the figures were designed to soften up the electorate for further spending cuts, and by implication, boost the Tory vote.
