tynemouth should be walk for labour, Alan Cambell?

Yes. Even taking away my mistrust of Labour (actually really liked some of what Corbyn has said over the last week or so), I have had a number of run in's with Campbell and he is nothing but a self serving utter fucking cunt who doesn't listen to his constituents.

Need to change the Media ownership rules. None of these live in the UK or pay much tax.

 

Culled from Guardian comments:

 

''These 5 billionaires are in fact the British Gov. Tories are only their managers, these people do what they want. Nobody can not stop them, and all of them have very interesting tax structures.

 

The Sun - Rupert Murdoch, American who lives in the US pays zero tax to HMRC

.

The Mail - Lord Rothermere, lives in France, inherited his non-domiciled UK tax status and channels business money through Rothermere Continuation Ltd based in Bermuda.

 

Daily Express - Richard Desmond has interesting tax arrangements with Luxembourg which reduces his company's corporation tax.

 

The Telegraph - David and Fred Barclay, live on private island Brecquou, near Sark. All their companies; The Ritz, Littlewoods and The Telegraph are each controlled by offshore trusts. The Barclays successfully managed to sue HMRC for a £1.2 billion refund over VAT miscalculations and the compound interest that accrued over the period when the error occurred, which interestingly pre-dated their ownership.''

Not sure why Brexit is the only issue people are concerned with. Whoever wins this has 5 years in power, Brexit is expected to take 2 years (will take longer for the effects to hit), leaving whoever wins with 3 years free to do whatever the fuck they want.

My guess is that that is behind the election being called. May was warning us of the destruction that 'Brexit' would bring. She must therefore be aware that any sitting government is going to take a sting from it.

 

Just keep going, and allow yourself a year to win the next election?

 

Or call one 11 days before negotiations, giving you 3 years to convince the public that it wasn't so bad after all.
