October Sunshine

The soft high peep of Goldcrests
as they flit through the sycamore leaves
delicately picking here and there.
A skylark practicing for next spring.
An explosion of Redwing freshly arrived from
Norway as they leave the berries behind.
Soft threads glinting in the sunshine from the
myriad of gossamer trails.
and the mellow hum of the flies, bees
and wasps on the ivy.

As Mrs May and Mr Davis trample
on parliamentary sovereignty.
and keep telling us that
4%
was overwhelming
and
we
mustn't complain
those who were to
remain.

Add insult to injury 48% of the UK population are now being demonised by
the
Daily Mail

2016-10-12_06-07-01

(Daily Mail 12/10/16)

In the original vote to join the EU there was a clear majority to join

67.23 % to 32.77%
on a
64.62% turnout

But notice the level of demonisation.

This is Civil War!

Corporation Tax

The Multinational Tax Challenge

The Double Irish disappears
into the Bermuda Triangle.
In the west.
While in the East
Singapore.

Manipulating tax liabilities
across national borders.
All in a days work.
We mustn't complain.
It's all perfectly legal.

The money mountains give the lie.
The creeping reach of multinationals
that depend on not showing a profit
to enable their further reach
across the globe.

Insults and demeans many.
But creates a few
above it all.

When people complain
they
offer
Not really believing they should
bear the burden of taxation.

All this economic activity that purports
to leave no profit worth taxing.
But leave them richer and more
powerful than the countries they serve.

They cosy up to politicians
make special deals.
But don't accept responsibility.
Nor are they forced to accept some.

This is the nub.
We need politicians who
can stand up to them. Rather
than capitulate.

Find a way to make them pay a responsible amount
in all the countries they do business in!





Google Tax

The Bermuda Triangle
&
The Google Tax


Google doesn't see why it should pay tax
The laws connive.
It's not the only one
but let's focus.

0% corporation tax in Bermuda.
That Island that mustn't be
blacklisted.

Book your profits in the UK
to a subsidiary in Ireland.
Send them on a little
trip to The Netherlands
Return them to Ireland.
Zip them off to another
Irish company based in Bermuda
and
You get a money mountain.

$43 Billion
and
rising.


Dear George back in 2014
shouted from the rooftops
25%
That's what they should be paying!
Wouldn't work with the rest of
europe.
I wonder why?

Creates his own deal of
3%
£130million on an estimated
£7.2Billion over the last ten years.

This is what he meant by
“While we offer some of the lowest business taxes in the world,
we expect those taxes to be paid - not avoided.”

“My message to those companies is clear:
we will put a stop to it.
Low taxes, but low taxes that are paid.”


Clearly our business tax rates are not
low enough for UK to become
part of the Bermuda Triangle.
But
We will lower the rate until you're
prepared to pay.

And there we have it!
