Big Society

15 posts in this topic

I was saying this years ago that these governments aint on doing better for society but downgrading peoples lifestyles and making people poorer

All these cuts are a joke and just an excuse to suck people of there money as our money aint going back into the country but we are literally being mass mugged

Big Society = Downgrade quality of life and work more for less

i don't get it

i thought you were anti state control of people's lives and state ownership

and now you don't like a style of government which aims to get rid of the "nanny state" and reduce the reach/power of the state and put the responsibility/power into the hands of the public

You are going with the government rhetoric when in reality its just telling people you are going to do more for less and people are going to suffer with cuts to services

Everything about the big society just seems like a whole lot of bullshit.

Cuts too deep and too fast, could kill social mobility and they are sitting there laughing. Washing their hands of responsibility for what politicians get into the business for.

They might have stuck the knife in, coalition has taken it out stabbed a few more times, twisted it and then kicked it in the bollocks just for good measure.

Percentage of poorer students going to uni increased under Labour though. But in general, poor considering what they once stood for, until Blair got his hands on the party.

Wavesurfer's sig looks like it could be a scene from American History X :lol:

Conservative defenders, capitalist lovers and bank suckers...please come in and defend the planned change in tax law that Cameron is trying to bring through.

LMFAO! Seriously, f*ck David Cameron c*nt. Guy has no mandate for this bullshit.

And barely any of the media is reporting it.

At the moment tax law ensures that companies based here, with branches in other countries, don't get taxed twice on the same money. They have to pay only the difference between our rate and that of the other country. If, for example, Dirty Oil plc pays 10% corporation tax on its profits in Oblivia, then shifts the money over here, it should pay a further 18% in the UK, to match our rate of 28%. But under the new proposals, companies will pay nothing at all in this country on money made by their foreign branches.

Foreign means anywhere. If these proposals go ahead, the UK will be only the second country in the world to allow money that has passed through tax havens to remain untaxed when it gets here. The other is Switzerland. The exemption applies solely to "large and medium companies": it is not available for smaller firms. The government says it expects "large financial services companies to make the greatest use of the exemption regime". The main beneficiaries, in other words, will be the banks.

But that's not the end of it. While big business will be exempt from tax on its foreign branch earnings, it will, amazingly, still be able to claim the expense of funding its foreign branches against tax it pays in the UK. No other country does this. The new measures will, as we already know, accompany a rapid reduction in the official rate of corporation tax: from 28% to 24% by 2014. This, a Treasury minister has boasted, will be the lowest rate "of any major western economy". By the time this government is done, we'll be lucky if the banks and corporations pay anything at all. In the Sunday Telegraph, David Cameron said: "What I want is tax revenue from the banks into the exchequer, so we can help rebuild this economy." He's doing just the opposite.
