Sorry, Prime Minister. There is no such thing as 'government money'

June 09, 2016 1:19 PM

At Prime Ministers’ Questions yesterday, the man himself spoke about something that doesn’t actually exist.

Responding to a question from Mark Spencer, David Cameron suggested that the Robin Hood railway line would benefit from 'government money'.

As he should know, every penny that the government spends comes from taxpayers current or future, the government has no money of its own.

So, what he should have said is that the railway line will benefit from taxpayers’ money.

The Prime Minister must remember that there is no such thing as 'government money', only taxpayers’ money, and it is his duty to ensure it is spent wisely.
