Avoiding corporation tax

There’s been a lot of hot air spouted this week about tax and the self employed, but what about the big boys? You know, the big corporations who make billions and can afford to pay clever accountants and lawyers the rest of us can’t even dream about instructing…

Here’s a round up of what’s going on – and it’s by no means exhaustive :

Caffe Nero : UK sales £274 million CT nil
Vodafone : UK sales £2.7 billion CT nil
Gap : UK sales £426 million CT nil
Waterstones : UK sales £395 million CT nil
EE : UK sales £6.3 billion CT nil

And there is a whole list of other big companies who pay some CT but nowhere near anything proportionate to their sales or real profits. Companies like Apple, Boots, Starbucks, Vision Express…

The list goes on and on, so maybe it would help defuse the row over the taxation of the self employed if the Chancellor was seen to do something about fairness in taxing the big boys as well as the little man?

Fairness shouldn’t be selective…

About bloody time too!

At long last something is actually being done about Anjem Choudary. After getting away with sticking two fingers up to British justice for twenty odd years, the bastard has finally been convicted of inciting Britons to support Islamic State he’s going to be locked away in Belmarsh Prison. Unfortunately, it’s too much to hope for that they will throw away the key…

I have another word to describe this man’s offenses. He’s British born and in my opinion inciting action against Britain, extolling the death of democracy and imposition of Shariah Law, plotting to send mail bombs to various London locations and chumming up with Lee Rigby’s killers can be simply described as ‘Treason’. Ironically Choudary is a solicitor and plays the law to his maximum advantage.

He’s now boasting that he will radicalise all the inmates while in prison and citing violation of his human rights to prevent him being kept in solitary confinement. Hopefully this will backfire and the aforementioned inmates will be only too happy to show him the appropriate response to his traitorous actions.

Sadley, this bastard and others like him are only too happy to take the piss out of the British way of life. We have only ourselves to blame for embracing tolerance of the Choudarys of this world in the name of multiculturalism. We are as weak as piss and the radical Islamists are only too ready to use this against us. Here’s a couple of his classic quotes :

By 2050, Britain will be a majority Muslim country. It will be the end of freedom of democracy and submission to God.

When Sharia law is implemented, maybe in 10 or 15 years’ time, the Queen would be expected like all women in Britain to be covered from head to toe, only revealing her face and hands.

If a Brit voiced view against Islam in IS the way he gets away with carrying on like this over here, he’d be beheaded or boiled in tar on the spot. But we can’t do that because as a QC said “Putting him in solitary confinement for 10 years is not the British way”. Well, perhaps it bloody well should be then the adherents of radical Islam wouldn’t be literally getting away with murder and laughing at us for being a soft touch.

You can’t stop a forest fire by pissing on it – and the sooner we realise that we’re the only side playing by the rules and do something about it, the better.

Otherwise, frankly, we’re royally fucked…

BCC – Isn’t that a cancer?

Apparently the British Chamber of Commerce is taking a neutral stance on Brexit which explains why it made it known publicly that 60% of its members support remaining in Europe?

And if that piece of blatant hypocrisy isn’t bad enough, they then went on to suspend their Director General, John Longworth, for saying in a speech that he was in favour of leaving the EU.

Longworth has a record of standing up to the government. He called David Cameron ‘gutless’ for delaying Heathrow’s expansion. He excoriated the Treasury for over-burdening the self-employed with tax returns. He said the country’s energy policy was a ‘complete mess’. He condemned ministers for creating red tape and hampering small businesses by failing to supply decent broadband. And he had said many school-leavers were unemployable as they could not speak confidently or turn up on time.

So it’s not really much of a surprise that he’s prepared to stand up to the government on the neverendum. In fact he believes so strongly that after he was suspended from his post, he decided to resign so that he was free to speak his mind. But did he jump – or was he pushed?

Cameron’s spokesman said it’s ridiculous to suggest that he was forced out. But then he would say that wouldn’t he? Boris Johnson thinks that he was crushed by the ‘agents of Project Fear’ for expressing a ‘passionate, optimistic view’.

Whatever the truth behind Longworth’s demise, one thing is certain: If the government did push him out to silence him then it’s had the opposite effect because a lot more people are listening to him now than were before…

Walking to happiness

More news on the ludicrous way this government has completely lost the plot when it comes to dealing with the migrant crisis…

Say hello to Abdul Rahman Haroun, a 40 year old Sudanese man who walked the 31 miles through the Channel Tunnel just before Christmas. Now you might think that this was a mammoth feat of endurance – it took him 11 hours after all – and deserves to be rewarded. The government might agree with you. I certainly don’t.

Personally, having intercepted him at the British end, I would have stuck him on the next train back to France. Instead they rewarded him by granting him asylum. Quite why I’m not sure as the last time I looked Sudan wasn’t a war zone and certainly isn’t in Syria, is it?

And it gets worse. He was charged with causing an obstruction to an engine or carriage using the railway under the Malicious Damage Act 1861. However in view of the granting of asylum, the charges are to be dropped.

Eurotunnel summed it up nicely : “We believe that it is something that can only act as an incentive to other illegal immigrants to seek to enter the country. We had hoped the authorities would use the full force of the law as a dissuasive measure.”

Damian Collins, the Tory MP for Folkestone and Hythe, commented “People who break the law should lose the right to asylum. What we want to do is send a message to those people in Calais that if you try and break into our country by hiding in vehicles or trains – or by walking through the Channel Tunnel – you will immediately lose your right to making an asylum claim in this country. This is completely the wrong message to send to other migrants waiting in Calais.”

So the migrants get a new poster boy. They are encouraged to give it a go because we are a soft touch. And the French are pissing themselves laughing at us.

In fact the French are so impressed that they are setting up a new migrant camp on the Channel coast near Dunkirk to encourage them to give it a go.

What a bunch of twats we are !!!

I call this censorship…

I don’t often post twice in the same day, but this is making my piss boil…

Simple question : How come when a petition is raised to support bringing migrants to the UK it doesn’t take ‘a few days’ to check it over and yet when I put forward the opposite view, it does?

Odd, isn’t it?

For the record, 16 people already supported it before this message appeared for which I thank you.

You can sign the petition by clicking this link – when they let you, of course…


My petition reads :

Reject calls to open our borders to migrants.

There is an endless stream of economic migrants and refugees trying to cross Europe to settle in the UK. The government should make it clear that we will not open our borders to them. Divert money from the foreign aid budget to helping genuine refugees in their own regions.
