Why our Brexit negotiations may not work Continue reading

Help the UK and Pay Your Tax Here

I see that Caffé Nero has just managed not to pay any tax on over £200 million turnover last year. I like Caffé Nero, it’s my coffee shop of choice but I am thinking of moving my business to Costa Coffee. At least I will if they pay their tax, but as they are owned by … Continue reading

Soft Touch Britain Deserves Better

I have just read an article in a newspaper about an Albanian murderer finally being kicked out of Britain and that he has finally lost legal battles tying to avoid extradition. He claimed that there was no justice in Albania and yet this man gouged out the eyes of one of his victims, presumably before … Continue reading

Sales Tax or Business Rate Rise?

Talking about business rates again and costs to small businesses, these businesses have to pay their rates whether they make any profit or not on sales of their goods. So do large businesses of course. However, I am becoming more and more convinced that it may be an idea to introduce a sales tax. Yes … Continue reading

Business Rates Fiasco

Well I see that the business rate rise is starting to cause problems. No surprise there then. Like me I suspect that you thought something similar as well.

Elderly Care and Overseas Aid

Well it had to happen sooner or later but it has recently been announced that the UK is funding elderly care in China. China is a country with a nuclear industry, a space industry and one of the largest economies in the world and yet we are funding the care of their elderly. And what … Continue reading

Hunt to Impose New Contract on Doctors

I have not done any in-depth reading about the decision of the Health Secretary to impose a new working contract on Doctors so this is a comment from the heart rather than reading through a subject and making a sensible comment, (not that I am well known for sensible comments). I think this is a … Continue reading

The Westminster Bubble Warp

I have heard of the Westminster bubble and used the phrase Westminster bubble wrap but I think the Westminster bubble warp fits a lot letter. I discovered this phrase after a typo. It has nothing to do with Captain Kirk and Star Trek as I don’t think politicians can move that fast but what it … Continue reading

Corbyn backs Buy British Steel

I see that Jeremy Corbyn has said that the British Government needs to make sure that we buy British steel for use in UK projects to help our failing steel industry. Well good for him. It is about time someone stood up and said something like this. He is finally talking common sense. It is … Continue reading
