Yes, I approve of this measure, the Servitude Year Cost.
The Servitude Year Cost measures the cost in years of labour necessary for an income taxpayer on median wage to pay for any given state expenditure. In other words, how many years people will be forced to work to pay for state waste spending. It\’s simple:

2,241 working servitude years were saved by the £13m cut to Bookstart (i.e. £13m/5800) or;
I think more of us should start to use this unit of measurement.
