These are the top 20 starting highest and going down, UK is actually higher than most of the Scandinavian countries we have been talking about - except Finland and Norway. There are far worse countries in terms of suicide.

Weird that France is number 26. I'd love to live in France!
As you pay more tax but the rest of your expenses go down too.
Fr example as a teacher in Australia it's likely that a proportion of BRV's wage already goes to subsidising the learning materials for children in her class room.
It's likely she may pay for private health, and has money put away in case something unforseen happens and her or her husband can't work.
If we lived in a Scandinavian country, it's unlikely that she would have to worry about these types of things.
I was trying to point out that people talk the talk but when it comes to helping the "less fortunate" many wont actually put their money where their mouths is.
FYI if you donate to charities ie Smiths Family then that's a tax deduction
As the OP of this thread I've been reading along with interest and just have to say thank you and well done Hubbers that this thread is still going! Yah for us! With so many different opinions voiced it's nice to see a discussion happening rather then a debate ( fight) ending with a locked thread for an issue that could easily have ended up that way. :thumbup:
