Maybe April 6 should be the real April Fools Day:-

Few people will consider it a cause for celebration – but 6 April marks the start of the new tax year.

This coincides with a series of changes to taxes, some benefit entitlements, and rights for employees.

I’m not sure if I’m better off or not. I’m squarely in that bracket that apparently benefits from the changes: male, no children, income under £25,000 and single (come and get me, guys!). However, the prices of so many things seem to have gone up, such that my disposable income gets swallowed faster than a plate of chips served to John Prescott.

It’s all very depressing at the moment, isn’t it? With cuts in services and prices going up, there’s not much to be cheerful about OH LOOK ROYAL WEDDING!!!!!111
