    There's already a ringfenced NHS tax. It's why NI went up from 12% to 13%. Do they want another % or a separate tax entirely? And how much is enough? If each Trust is allowed to bleat on that they haven't got enough money while failing to make actual efficiencies then things will never improve.

    I'd like to opt out of paying for the elderly (£85bn), government (£68bn, of which £43bn is managing debt) education (£32bn) and children (£21bn)

    If we stop giving handouts to the over 60s, then they'll soon not be around to drain the coffers of the NHS either. And if people want to have children they should be able to fund them and their education, but you need kids for the future of the country, so stopping funding them should be secondary to the elderly and government savings.
