  • Comment on: Lloyds finally pays out dividends on £1.7bn profits

    £12 million is a lot of money, but if it saves the UK billions, it is a spit in the ocean. Maybe we should pay our MPs and top civil servants a lot more, and get outstanding people, instead of the time servers and party hacks we have at the moment.

    Labour have reverted to their class envy mode, and Conservatives have striven too hard to over come the 'nasty party' label with which Theresa May shot them in the foot, alienating their natural supporters with ring-fencing overseas aid to corrupt countries, cutting the armed forces, gay marriage,failure to control immigration, PC attitude to the growing threat of Islamic fundamentalism in UK, failure to deport criminals under the Human Rights Act, subservience to the ECHR, EAW, and so on. They deserve the indifference they are getting. The only worse thing will be a Labour government allied with the even more left-wing SNP a predictable financial disastter.

    Lynn Homer was useless at immigration, and now she's equally useless at HMRC. Why do governments continue to employ her at a very hefty salary + benefits? rewarding incompetence!

    Agree with most of the above; it's up to governments to stop these loopholes. Until they do, companies are perfectly entitled to take advantage of them. But UK employees pay tax and NI and VAT is also paid on their sales. The simplest thing would be a turn-over tax on non-dom companies

  • Comment on: What HS2’s £50bn could really buy us - we do the maths

    I've heard this is being foisted upon us by the EU-does anyone know the answer?
