  • that statistics can mean anything that anyone one wants. there was a great one in the daily mail the other day. Do smokers pay more in tax than they recieve in benefit from the nhs? Yes. in an average year a smoker pays 950 quid of tax and receives 150 quid of nhs benefit. shame they didnt point out the mutliple thousands it costs the year they die of lung cancer. or indeed the people who die from passive smoking :)
    • More fun with statistics. Everyone has to die. But deaths from smoking related illnesses are generally cheaper than other types of death in old age. So people dying from smoking saves society more than it costs!
