My first thought is that every FTSE and FTSE250 company will move its registered office to Alderney or Douglas and that tax take will crash.

My 2nd thought is that to make up for this shortfall all middle earners (25k+) will see significant tax rises to compensate for this.

My 3rd thought is that they really are living in some sort of parallel universe. 🤣

Beginning to think we are ALL in a parallel universe when the most newsworthy item is about an over privileged slob putting his hand up a teenage bimbo's frock........Allegedly rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

Comments like that, no wonder historical victims find it hard to come forward. Way to go.

They're not the first,

BBC News - National Grid and SSE move offshore over Labour plans
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-50536205

And they won't be the last. Marxism, good news for business.

Unfortunately they don't do a "hands up" emoji so I stand as accused, but equally I defend my stance though I am not sure which party you are defending or your reasoning behind it.

Not defending any party - just highlighting that your attitude towards sexual assault stinks. I think the majority on here would agree!

Looks as if the Trades Unions are also jumping in to help Labour right now too. What better than memories of the 1970s.

Sorry you have lost me somewhere. Don't recollect demeaning the act or advocating a sexist stance, just empathising the media obsession with trivia at the expense of more relevant issues.

You knows the rules. Unless you are joking about white middle aged men then it's off limits.😂

You were done. You can get 25s with Corals or Ladbrokes.
Lib Dems are 400s and a Conservative majority is 4/9.

Locally 1/8 Conservative and 9/2 Lib Dems (Skybet)

Really? Oh well, never mind. Not much of a one for the bookies but even at those odds it's worth a quick punt.

If Corbyn get's the key to no 10 we will all be a charity case. Anyone see him being "grilled" by Andrew Neil this evening? Not a happy bunny was he.

Diane gets it too. Perhaps she can use some of it to buy a copy of 'Maths for dummies'.
