AND HOW THE POOR ARE TO BLAME FOR THE ECEONMIC COLLAPSE
The UK 2010 General Election was fought for, and won on the subjects of the national debt, and the 'benefit scroungers'. Since then, the fault still lies on the poor. It's about time the light was shon on the real problem. Which is the tax evasion that could not only pay the national debt, if collected. But, could also aid the education and welfare of every person in the UK.
Apple have been ordered by Europe to pay over £11bn in back taxes. The standard tax rate of a working class citizen in the UK is 20%. Apple paid a pathetic 1%.
In 14 years. Starbucks paid a mere £8.6m on their profits. I'm pretty sure a billionaire corporation can afford to pay more than that in 14 years! They made £398m in one year!
Possibly the biggest online retailer in the world. Paid just £11.9m on £5.3bn worth of profits. The company then went on to claim that they had not made a profit! You can't make this up!
This guy alone could pay off the whole NHS defecit, and still have money left over to invest and make substantial profits. Do the right thing, Hugh!
Stop pointing the finger at the poor!
This list could go on and on. But the argument is that the light is taken off these tax dodging veterans and put onto the disabled, vulnerable and working class. Apparently, the poor have enough money over the span of a few decades to clear the national debt. Why don't these tax dodging corporations step up and give their fair share!
Educating future generations with tax
I can not see how people can disagree with taking profits from companies, which they should pay anyway, and invest into our future by paying for future generations to go to university, be sheltered and develop a future where we do live in a fair and equal society. How is it impossible? 5 families in the UK make up 20% of the economy, that's just ridiculous! It's a good portion of taxpayers money going towards their fortune, too!
To conclude, society needs to have a good reality check. There is too much inequality in this world. The blame is being put on the poor, the vulnerable and immigrants. But the real problem is the bankers gambling with our money. The large corporations dodging incredible amounts of tax. Governments reducing corporation tax to quote 'reward success'. It's a total joke and it's about time things changed.
