Re: General Election

The IFS have also confirmed that the tories tax breaks will benefit the top rate more than the lower rates... unsurprisingly. Disappointed to see the Tories snap into attack mode over Corbyn's speech... clearly without actually looking at the detail. It is a totally legitimate argument that the UK f...

Re: General Election

And there lies the problem with their "costed" figures. Have they taken into account the number of corporations that will move their operations overseas? No. Have they taken into account the number of businesses that will stop making profits, downsize, or go under following the hike? No. Their numb...

Re: General Election

I still think they always need to include "non of the above" on the ballot paper. I note that Labour are trying to bribe students into voting for them. Gotta love long term thinking. Interesting that despite the change in time that their removal of student fees will cover, the "costed budget" for i...

Re: General Election

Actually the IFS (independent) on the today program gave them a clean bill of health with that regard at least... they are putting up corporation tax a lot. Not heard the Today Program quote, but it's at odds with what they say elsewhere. https://election2017.ifs.org.uk/article/labour-s-proposed-in...

Re: Value of Rovers

Would have assumed that as they're all under the EFL it would be the same - but just as naive as you are. I'm sure there are plenty of benign and legitimate reasons why accountants would want to come to ewood park... but I'm sure BRFCS can supply some hysteria if we need it. As a guess - if there ha...

Re: General Election

A fairly radical interpretation... people who advocate wealth redistribution rarely think they will be the beneficiaries.... in the same way that most of the people worried about wealth taxation aren't the people who will be affected by it. The problem with the economic arguments is that there isn't...
