Rewarding the Rich
Watching Osborne smugly describing his giveaway of Northern Rock as, “A good deal for the taxpayer,” was more than usually annoying. The millionaire chancellor was giving another millionaire many millions of public money.
According to UK Uncut, Branson and Virgin are serial tax avoiders.
Which makes the whole thing a lot lot worse.
Smug Osborne must have known this but it didn’t merit consideration because in the strata they occupy, that is what you do.
Meanwhile there are over 1 million young people out of work with little or no immediate prospects.
