    I think you may be right here - payroll has to issue the agreed rate.

    But I think that using the funds to pick and choose where it goes- charity or whatever, is not the same as putting it into the Exchequer/public finances.

    I am trying to think of some way in which an individual might contribute to the exchequer, and for the life of me I can't.

    Perhaps the thing to do would be to buy prize bonds and invest any winnings straight back into prize bonds ?

    Look it though cf, svp keeps people in their homes-better that than losing all yer money on bonds. also dont forget they could start up a local enterprise fund with some of their wages too they get so much(92 k min. after tax)

    It's the principle of the thing. If a public servant wants to take a pay cut, they can't reserve the right to pick and choose how the money is spent. It should go back to the Government.

    Perhaps they could gift it to the state in the same way that people gift works of art.

    It would be an interesting exercise to try

    I might get in touch with the D o F and ask them how I can give them a tenner.

    Good idea. Keep us posted. If you're successful you could tell those noble TDs who struggle under the oppressive yoke of too much pay how to follow your example.

    Is that something like a private slush fund?
