Gordoom Promises Tax Breaks For Business


Seems Jonah will promise anything to anyone at anytime to try and get a favourable headline or response.

"Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling, who unveiled a new "Tax Framework for Business" at a global trade and investment conference in London, have been blasted for making empty promises and "ignoring" business fears over the UK tax system.

The prime minister, who opened the conference designed to boost international business confidence in Britain, told the audience of 250 directors and entrepreneurs that their importance would be reflected "when reviewing, revising and developing business tax policy".

At the conference the Prime Minister repeated the Government's commitment to high speed broadband. He told the audience that the Government would invest £1bn to extend superfast broadband to "120pc or 130pc of the population." He also promised to spend £14bn on projects such as Crossrail, high speed rail and motorways.

Other measures pledged by Jonah at the conference included:

  • An "Investors' Charter" - a series of promises from the UK Government centred on "maintaining Ed Ball's pension pot" included pledges to "enhance Yvette's bedroom techniques"; "develop a third home for them closer to Whitehall" and "make sure he has 24 hour police protection."
  • A pledge to form the UK innovation Investment Fund to benefit Pie and Sandwich shops on Industrial Estates.
  • A commitment to improve access to visas to foreign criminals wanting to come to the UK to benefit from greater opportunity and comfy prisons.

Hasn't anyone figured out what this broadband tax is all about? Once the internet has been subsidised for children and other vulnerable people then it MUST be controlled and sanitised.

This is of importance to wealthy folks but for the lumpen proles is of limited value.

Its always about power and control

Why do you think the low fat diet is pushed?

It is the thief of memory You only have a decent memory with adequate fat and cholesterol

There are so many power and control schemes that you just dont remember all of them and you accept it because you are conditioned to accept brainwashing from the television

Our diet has got poorer and poorer and so have our wallets,

It has always been about retaining power and exercising control

Long range plans and short term ones

It stinks to high heaven.
