Not Political

Twelve seconds of adverts to wade through at the beginning, but worth it I think.

Bill Nighy is one of my favourite British Actors.

my problem is they both claim "the tax isn't a lot" but also that it will raise over 50 billion a year...

it's either "a tiny tax" or it'll raise a lot of money, it can't be both

Area Trace No Search said...

Anon, I think they mean that each time a tax is applied it won't be a lot, relative to the amounts being taxed it will be miniscule.

The "a lot" comes from the accumalitive effect of all these "not a lots" - much the same as for example the vat on a wheel nut for example. Lots of wheelnuts sold = lots of tax from wheelnuts.

I think I love Bill Nighy a little bit more for doing that.

I find his interviews are quite unique.

Old BE said...

Yeah, but ultimately the idea is bollocks.

Old BE said...

My apolopies. Saying something is "bollocks" is neither big nor clever.

The idea is nice in principle but how would it work in practice? Who would operate it? Surely it would have to be global to work at all and what if one place decided not to implement it? How would clever people be prevented from avoiding it? Would it replace existing taxes or be in addition, because I feel like I pay plenty already!

The idea has been around for a very long time and dismissed each time it is suggested.

Very true. All it would do is make the cost of doing business a bit higher. It won't be individual bankers paying the tax, it will all go into the costs of running a fund and get passed onto the investors in a fund, who are:

Hermes - Individual BT workers
USS - Academics and universities pension funds
Scottish Widows - my pension etc

In short, it is yet another raid on pensions and investments for the private sector plus as you so rightly put it, it is totally unworkable unless it is global.

To be a noble benign being is to from a kind of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an skill to trust aleatory things beyond your own restrain, that can front you to be shattered in uncommonly exceptional circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something very weighty with the prerequisite of the principled compulsion: that it is based on a trust in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a prize, something somewhat feeble, but whose acutely particular beauty is inseparable from that fragility.

I seldom drop responses, however I browsed a few of the comments on "Not Political".
I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.

Could it be simply me or does it look like like some of these comments
look like they are left by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to follow anything new you

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
but I had to tell someone!
