Development would be the destruction of the aristocratic noblemen, that only care about themselves and their wealth..Those days are dying though they still have privileges that others do not have at present.
Evolvement, gradual growth, evolution, maturation; progression with out dated laws and living in the past, is not development at all.
The UK isn't meant to be organised, it is meant to be an obstacle course, with catch 22 for everything. That is not progressive. Things need simplifying to improve.
Though with Cameron and the libs it maybe possible, to improve things though i doubt it, becuase there is no money available.

For a start VAT is to be increased from 17.50 to 20.00 in a few months' time. What's the VAT in Singapore? I'm wondering if it'll save for me to live out there for some time.
