Brown is a clown, but just think, this idiot will soon be in charge:
Somebody give Gillian Duffy a ticket to this Thursdays leaders debate!
Watching Gordon today was like witnessing a car crash. We all slowed down to get a good look at the wreckage.
we could well get to a situation where the libdems have talked themselves up and up as kingmakers, when infact the tories won't need their help to secure a majority in the end.....not saying that's the preferred outcome. but it would atleast wipe the smirk off nick clegg's mug.
Just watched it.. Sky news had no right to release that given that Brown is in his parties PRIVATE car. I am all for freedom of information but come on.
london has actually done very well out of performing 'wealth management' for wealthy individuals and families. i'm sure the wealthy would rather not have all their income command punitive rates of taxation in the uk, and all the while they shift their money around and have it managed in london. plus, labour didn't get rid of the non-dom rule regarding foreign earnings...that's another reason why london is a favoured location for the foreign superrich. they aren't clobbered by taxes, and the tax authorities take a smaller slice of a much larger pie than it otherwise would have been.
Indeed, the very wealthy also do the following things:
Employ people and pay wages + tax
Buy bigger 'toys' and pay tax on these
Invest their wealth in smaller companies and charities
And a whole host of other things that I've just forgotten..........
