it’s a total red herring to suggest that the only way for a society to safeguard its populace against energy crises is by massive tax hikes.
let’s talk about the systemic tax evasion and dodgy book-keeping by the society’s most wealthy before we make out that the only way to heat britain’s homes is to ‘pay £3000 more tax’.
let’s talk about windfall taxes on the corporations who are posting record profits as a result of the instability - and paying it into your bank account.
OK, so as expected you're planning for anyone who isn't you to pay for it all.
What if I told you - if companies make more profit they automatically pay more tax
yeah, because as we all know, letting companies make runaway profits always end up in them dutifully paying their full taxes.https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/ener … 07196.html
the welfare of everyone is improved if we just let the corporations make their yuuuuge profits.
trickle down economics baby!
it hasn't actually delivered any just and equitable results since, erm, the 1980s – but let's just give it a try for a little while longer. any minute now we're about to see the immense pay-offs of letting corporations line their coffers and shareholders get their porsches.
i'm sure the people who can't heat their homes or afford fresh produce this winter will be warmed by the news that corporations have to pay tax, sometimes, too, on their all-time-high profits.
Britain's disastrous covid response - probably should let actual scientists run the show next time.
lol, you literally are at odds and disagree with the PhD'd experts on epidemiology at this present moment. you really do have a head like a sieve.
