Where my taxes go - part 2

"Police Constable Huffy" was depressed. So this young woman gets a huge pension to cheer her up. According to the Daily Mail, the pension is worth "almost £1,000,000".


She is also pursuing a claim against Lothian and Borders at an employment tribunal, alleging that she was the victim of sexism, cronyism, and bullying.
No doubt that will cost me a bit more.

A Glasgow employment lawyer is quoted as saying: "This case could have widespread implications for police and other civil servants..."

Indeed it could. At this rate, there will soon be no taxpayers left to finance any civil "servants".
