The EU is now making moves, through a new directive, that would effectively quash net neutrality. Net neutrality covers three core principles which allows the internet to remain free and open.

James Blunt Planning on Moving to Switzerland
JAMES BLUNT PLANNING ON MOVING TO SWITZERLAND – Once again the Daily Mail is running an article on another wealthy and famous British Citizen that is considering a move out of the Country, as what the Daily Mail reports as being a way to avoid paying tax on his fortune.
So, yet again we have a witch hunt of the rich and famous and once again the Daily Mail points the ‘Holier than Thou’ finger for someone trying to protect their assets.
Yesterday I wrote an article ‘Tax Avoidance in the UK‘ which detailed a witch hunt against the likes of foreign companies who openly avoid paying income tax; which I pointed out was perfectly legal and which was the obligation, of the companies in question, to their shareholders.
For all the finger pointing by the Daily Mail and Members of Parliament it would be interesting to see just how ‘CLEAN’ there accounting practices are and whether they engage in ways to avoid paying income tax. If the Daily Mail is not engaging is some form of tax avoidance for the benefit of its Board of Directors and Shareholder then I’d glad stand in a town square naked, covered in jelly, while someone whips me with a cat and nine tails.
I am certainly NOT alone in my views that if the UK Government wasn’t so corrupt and inept at running the country then maybe the likes of James Blunt wouldn’t feel the need to leave and all those corporations that are avoiding tax would be less inclined to do so.
Just look at some of our Ministers – they are all living off the taxpayer and they are all over paid. On top of that they have all the perks, such as exorbitant travel expenses and living accommodation. How many Ministers are on the take, by renting their homes out for profit and letting the tax payer pick up the tab on another house or apartment?
The Daily Mail is so far up its own backside it fails to even realise that James Blunt, like many other, are simply trying to avoid the greed of the UK Government and I am positive the Daily Mail has a number of shrewd accountancy practices which significantly reduces its annual tax bill.
People, let he, who is without sin, cast the first stone – I dare any Government Minister or the Daily Mail to pick up the rock – maybe it would be better for all if they simply kept their mouths firmly shut and crawled under it instead of attempting to throw it.
Britain, like any country is only as good as the people who are running it, and when it is clearly run for the benefit of the Government Ministers and their ‘Old Boys Network’ then the very idea of a witch hunt for those trying to avoid paying tax is absurd.
Yes, the public does want tougher measures imposed on criminals and in a recent ComRes poll some 59% support the reinstatement of the death penalty.
The National Crime Agency has just issued a high level warning for people to be on the lookout for Email Scammers. This Email Scam Alert is expected to affect a huge number of victims but it can be prevented if more people are aware.
The Jimmy Savile abuse victims are to receive, what they call, a paltry pay off by the BBC in compensation for the sexual abuse their were subjected to. Is monetary compensation right and will it ease the victims trauma?
