    Polytheists, rarely, if ever, slaughtered each other for reasons of religion. Polytheistic religions tended to look through their respective pantheons and find gods that were rough equivalents and worshipped accordingly.

    To up spendings? That is the key issue. Does the UK have 'free' money which can be used for that? IIRC, the UK has one of the biggest budget deficits in the Western Europe.

    Regular polls suggest people would be happy to do that. We are wasting gazillions on the wretched Trident project as well.

    And people understand that this may require additional taxes being paid by them, right?

    The Trident project gives jobs to many people, I suppose. Including high-skilled engineers.

    Yup.
    Two-thirds of Britons would pay more income tax to fund the NHS, poll finds

    HuffPost is now part of Verizon Media

    Those engineers could build new hospitals and schools. Do something positive with their talent.

    And what percent of salary a worker pays as taxes in your country?

    They won't build schools and hospitals. It is the same as if instead of oculists their job will be done by orthopedists.
