Flight From And To The State



Over on Tom Paine he is commenting on Mark Thomas' assertion that the
UK should invade Jersey, because all of the 'Pirates' that are avoiding
'rightful' Income Tax by relocating their businesses there, or
Switzerland or other non hostile business parts of the Globe. Whilst
Mark Thomas is doing this tongue in cheek, it does hightlight that business is not set up in the UK to be the Milch Cow of the State, or to be unpaid Tax gatherers. The State is not an equity partner, it takes no risks in the venture it just bleeds the Cow dry. So what incentive is there to stay ?

Of all the dividend payments that were made in 2009, 25% came from just two companies, the vast bulk of dividends came from just five companies. Nu Labour has rendered the UK to be one of the most unprofitable places to do business in the world. The productive sector is just upping sticks and voting with its feet.

The Flight to the State is from older applicants rather than going on the dole, applying to University, up twenty per cent on this time last year. This is not taking into account this is an early snapshot, as the application season is no where near over. This is a laudable alternative to sitting watching Jeremy Kyle all day, as long as there is genuine education happening, not some of the more utterly useless courses on offer.

So when Blair said Education,Education,Education did he really mean as an alternative to full time unemployment in a bombed out economy ?

it's not just the useless courses that's the problem, it's the poor academic standards on many of the supposedly useful ones.

BTW - who are the 5 companies?

Don't worry, it will all be OK. Nu-Labour are spending vast amounts of your taxes on 'Community Cohesion' don't you know ?

And its clearly working...

the common thread in all Labour policy is to destroy industry, income, savings, community, sovereignty, independence and the rule of law while still holding on to power.

Well, if BT is still an example of a British company, I'd advise ALL companies to run, run, run as fast as they can as the dividends from BT have become steadily shittier. I've just had my latest one today & it's hardly worth wasting the petrol to drive to the bank to pay it in.

We've now gained the same status as the Pacific rim sweatshop economies, at the whim of multinationals who set up shop where they get the best tax breaks.
The future is fucked.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

It is the politics of the duds, by the duds for the duds.

If you add together half of those at "university" half of those allegedly in "training" all the NEETS, two thirds of the young single mothers and put them together nine tenths of those on Invalidity Benefit as well as all those busted out of jobs at 50+ and not eligible for benefits plus the early retired on public sector pensions and then add to the admitted unemployment figures, you will see why we have a problem with the fiscal deficit.

Glad to see you have been run off the Torygraph Ron, fnnr fnnr, was it something you said?

we know what you meant, darling said...

guthrum, in the true spirit of this blog may i say that you are a typical product of today's university system and, as such, your sloppy syntax is giving me the most unpleasant grammatical indigestion punctuated by severe bouts of verbal reflux. my god, blair has ruined this country forever. i can only hope, for your sake, darling, that you were, at the time, being coached by a post-structuralist plsiff - a well-ahead state of affairs which would clearly explain how you somehow managed to type the emotions aroused by your intellectual fumblings directly into the computer and by some miraculous process more mystical than that which was responsible for scamming the mediaeval image of joe bloggs onto the turin shroud produce a time-lapsed version of your thoughts in one prolonged projection of post-structuralist spew.

communities are like eggs - just crack them, beat them up, then beat them together, and, after sprinkling-in some mixed-laws and turning-up the heat for a few minutes, you should be left with an omelette sans any fucking conjunctive-cohesion whatso-fucking-ever - just like guthrum's blogpost.
