No idea Teddy- its not my job, unless you want to pay me? But i"m guessing keep the bankers bonus at 200% of salary like the EU wanted, no need to go above 2x salary is there, or a bonus ?. How about hitting the energy companies and the multi nationals like uber with proper tax? Ban the use of off shore tax havens. Perhaps , if these don"t work, hit the pensioners in their pensions- they keep voting CON after all, perhaps its time for them to feel the pain

Yes, multi-nationals should pay their due.
As for pensioners £141.85 a week isn't a lot to start with and is a bit ironic to penalise them when they often did the low-paid jobs you're trying to help.

I donít think you will find a post where I have said I support the CONS, I just canít support Labour and totally disagree with these strikes, at the present time

Ok, fair enough, you do seem to stick up for the CONS a lot though, and if the train drivers and others get good pay rises, those at the bottom- even non union workers, will be pulled up with increases in time or nobody any good would do the jobs.But its not important, we can agree to differ or we go round and round!

Anyway- i"m losing interest in sticking up for less fortunates- lots don"t vote and are couch potatoes, no point keep stressing on here talking to opposite opinions, you get nowhere and what does it achieve? I will try and only post when I see a real clanger or lawbreaking by the government in charge, or a real piss take- like going over 2x salary for bankers bonus!

That's same as everywhere else in the world except the United States of Europe.

It is still strange the left have taken the word " bankers " and redefined it as some kind of demonic anti-Christ.

There's a banker, cross yourself and get the pitchforks.

Personally I think for example sports people and celebs are less deserving.

Whilst we live in a society where investment constantly is needed to promote growth we need some kind of system, i.e banks to channel that.

When the global population is one billion we can all live in some kind of Utopia where we can sit around discussing methods of growing our food in a non plant hurting way and weaving non dairy yoghurt ( tips hat to Alexi Sayle )

The top 1% of earners in the UK pay around 30% of the income tax take for hmg.
It doesnít really make sense to push them away by punishing their efforts and rewards.
Who picks up the slack if that 1% go to other countries ?

And so far the taxpayer has made about 1 billion profit on said bailout. Iím sure thatís good news. Btw the lights didnít go out and life went on. Also it was a labour hmg and I agreed with what they did.

Well, I donít know how you calculate that. Did you include the time value of money? Last I knew the cost of borrowing was about the same or more than the face value Ďprofití.

In the meanwhile we had the opportunity cost issues. Schools and hospitals not built or upgraded for example. The banking and Covid bailouts significantly favoured the rich, as they used the savings of poorer people. Ask an economist.

The Resolution Foundation said wealth had increased during lockdown as a result of a lack of spending opportunities and rising house prices, but the benefits had been skewed to the richest by a ratio of more than 500 to 1.

Jack Leslie, a senior economist at the thinktank, said it was rare for wealth to increase during a recession but the impact of events during 2020 and 2021 had been to ďturbo-chargeĒ the gap between rich and poor.

So thatís all good then. No need for any rebalancing as the rich are doing so much for the rest of us


In 2015-16 the average rate of tax paid by people who received one million pounds in taxable income and gains was just 35 per cent: the same as someone earning £100,000. But one in four of these paid 45 per cent Ė close to the top rate Ė whilst another quarter paid less than 30 per cent overall. One in ten paid just 11 per centóthe same as someone earning £15,000. The rich, it seems, are not all in it together.

These low rates are not driven by complex tax avoidance schemes; theyíre part of how our system is designed. Where you get your money from (or at least how you package it) matters, because investment income and capital gains are taxed at lower rates than income from work. Whatís more, as the National Audit Office recently highlighted, the government offers tax reliefs claimed to incentivise activities like entrepreneurship, without actually checking whether they achieve these aims.

The EU says that excess mortality deaths have hit +16% higher than normal. There seems to be very little analysis of this in the media.
