  1. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I've never known the country so divided. There's real anger on the remain side. If we come out of this poorer I honestly am not sure what will happen. If leaving does incredibly have the positive results some hope for that might be the only way to heal the wound.

    I put Guardian links to news articles. I use reports and other sources to back up my arguments. Try it sometime...

    And let's not forget that both tax credits and in work benefits have been cut substantially over the last 7 years. The poorest have been hardest hit by the Tories policies over the last 7 years http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/tory-welfare-reforms-hit-poor-vulnerable-hardest-study-a8058176.html

    Can somebody tell me again - how do I mute fox?

    Imagine a world in which you believed that government could neither tax nor borrow to raise income. It's like some people on here think the Tories can keep the country going by finding a magic money tree.

    Britain was a manufacturing country until the Tories decimated the north in the 80s. Can you tell me which parts of Labour's industrial strategy were unworkable? Forgive me but I doubt very much that you've ever read it.

    I can't take you seriously fox. You're like a broken record. Germany outperforms any other country in Europe by a significant distance. It's corporation tax is far higher than ours. Which two countries do finance countries talk of relocating to due to Brexit? France (Paris)and Germany (Frankfurt) - both with far higher corporation taxes. Labour had an industrial strategy devoted to the region's prior to the election. But you haven't bothered to find that out before commenting. It's like you've been cuckolded by business and the Tories. I'm going to be setting you to muted from now on so I don't have to read this crap any more.

    Tax fell because of a global financial crisis you numpty.
  10. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    You've spent months telling us business will leave the uk if we raise corporation tax 5%. I've just completely disproved this. Now you've decided to switch to arguing about immigration. I think perhaps you need to stop arguing about corporation tax now.
  11. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    The only EU countries with low corporation taxes like ours are the ones with small economies. All the bigger players have tax tastes MUCH higher than ours. Business doesn't leave. It's worth the extra to have access to rich customers and developed infrastructure. Unfortunately the Tories are trying to turn us into a poor neighbour with crap public infrastructure but low tax to try to make up for it.

    Germany's corporation tax is 10% higher than ours.... (France's is 14% higher)
  13. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    The massive corporations hardly pay any tax here as it is. Normal companies aren't going to leave because of a small increase in business taxes to still less than it was only 7 years ago when they were all here working away calmly. The answer here in the UK should be yes. An interesting report on EU taxation is attached, shows taxes across EU at state level. I've picked out a couple of items also taxation_trends_report_2017.pdf

    Sorry no more Guardian links today but this one explains why we need to stop fretting about deficits and start worrying about what we provide for our people. A budget to increase national debt? That would be a pay rise for Britain https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/nov/20/budget-increase-national-debt-pay-rise-britain-bill-clinton-philip-hammond?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Copy_to_clipboard
