I have posted before, that the UK, especially the City of London Corporation is the biggest Tax Haven in the World. Our political elite, Labour and Conservative constantly tell us they cannot tax the rich because the financial sector would leave this country.

The papers are full of stories of how the Conservatives are going to cut benefits, claiming tax-payers are sick of paying for the work-shy. Most of those who are on benefits have no choice, there is no paid work for them. The way the Economy is modelled, does not take account of those who do unpaid work, such as housewives and those who care for relatives.

The cuts are supposed to be in the region of £10 billion but the Government is taking about spending £70 billion of a Trident missile program replacement, not mentioned in the papers.
And of course this ‘Green’ Governments commitment towards renewable energy, which has seen the Chancellor talk about tax-breaks for ‘fracking’. Has disillusioned major energy companies, who are now talking not investing in the UK.
