Most depressing day of the year!

What better way to celebrate the most depressing day of the year than to find that my tax status has changed and I now have to pay another $163 in tax a month! Top that with the $s 15% decline in value agaist the £ and it’s time to get out the party hats!

From what I can gather I’ve been paying less tax for the last year because I am not allowed to claim the benefits unless I permanently live here, now I’m classed as a resident alien, and have to pay into the fund, though I lose any entitlement to said benefits (unemployment, health etc) the second I leave the country, which I would have to do if I lost my job (sort of a catch 22).
