Hi Grit,

I think the government waste tally per head over here takes some beating my friend. A couple of years ago the Scottish Parliament building was complete a number of years late and, at approaching £440 million, some £400 million over budget. With overpayments of benefits running at £1.6 billion, £270 million overspend on Tax Office buildings, and about £1 billion on consultancy services, most of which does not produce workable answers. So that amounts to over £3.3 billion ($6 billion) of waste in just four areas. Bearing in mind that our population is only 60 million, this is a mountain of waste.
