    Nigel Pearson RIP

    100% spot on
  2. It’s corrupt that only the rich have access to loopholes, both in terms of knowing about them and having the means to activate them. There should be a government loophole website that everyone can access and where choosing an exemption is simply a matter of entering your NI and passport numbers and pressing a button. No £30,000 fees or tax and legal experts required.
  3. But those restrictions don’t apply to Sunak’s wife. She earns income in the UK. I think though the stumbling block would be owning a residence in India as I think only Indian nationals can buy there, but renting a home might get over it? I don’t think it’s necessary to pay the £30k if you don’t intend to avoid Income Tax.
  4. But she’ll retain her India tax domicile and not have to pay CGT or Inheritance Tax. Just a thought, could we not all declare ourselves to be domiciled in India?

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Are the queues not down to daft Covid absences in border staff?

    A non-story.

    Energy Bills going mad

    So, in short, it could halve the tax. Out of interest I wonder if Norway negotiated preferential rates for the oil and gas it takes from companies that hold the concessions in its territory or did it reserve certain fields for a State run company that can set lower prices for Norwegians? I assume we just trusted in capitalism and sold of concessions to the highest bidders, dimly happy to put ourselves at the mercy of OPEC’s price setting?

    Apparently 1 in 2 people get cancer. If only we could pump £400 billion into research and treatment.

    Students and others pick fruit on short term contracts around the world every year!

    Energy Bills going mad

    Why is this line trotted out: ”Oil and gas are internationally traded commodities and we cannot insulate ourselves against price rises”. Isn’t that rubbish? Can’t we have a cheaper price from North Sea oil and gas? How much does petrol cost in the US and Saudi Arabia? Couldn’t the government halve its tax take (from about 80p to 40p)?

    Ah, Remoaner short termism and denial of the impact of the stupid Covid response. Regardless, I’m quite happy to grant temporary visas for decent, honest seasonal workers like fruit and veg pickers. Quite different from undesirables being entitled to live here full time.
  12. I don’t know if that’s the truth but I would like to see it as the lead story on BBC News today with a rational rebuttal from the UKHSA if appropriate. Only the mainstream narrative ever gets heard in headline news!
  13. I suspect a state of the art UK car company would be very competitive in the UK compared to imported cars. And just picking the one example of the Scottish government incident doesn’t make a rule!
  14. I’m quite sure that our current or recent employees of Nissan, Toyota, Honda and Ford coupled with our Formula One engineers and commercial and university scientists could provide the expertise upon which to build a car manufacturing company.
  15. I’m not saying that we should not trade, but we should be as self-sufficient as possible in the key industries or have an ethical and secure supply chain. And trading is not “globalisation” or a form of it. Globalisation involves a huge, worldwide interdependent web of supply and it takes only one big State or key (usually cheap or exclusive) supplier to go rogue and you’re knackered.
