Hurricane Irma Devastation in the Carribean. And Tax Havens.


How many of the Carribean Islands that have been devastated by the Hurricanes are Tax Havens under British Law?

Tax havens are a legal loophole to willfully withold contributing to that tax revenue.

How about a Hurricane Devastation Tax on that immense and amoral welath hoard to help those Islanders, mostly non-white, to rebuild and to rebuild with resilience in mind, considering the likelihood of more Hurricanes on the horizon?

I see no reasonable objection to a one off HDT fromthat vast hoard being raised to help rebuild the homes, infrastructure and the lives of the residents of these Islands.

And another thing!

The UK Government is funded on a day to day basis mostly by the taxes PAYE and Self Employed workers pay on work and sales taxes and other sundry taxes.

That money does not belong to the Government. It belongs to the people of the UK.

The Government holds our taxes in trust.

This is the 21st Century, not the 18th Century, when income tax was introduced to fund the wars against France.

That trust has profound implications, an implied duty of care - which clearly suggests that when it is spent or utilised, the policy must be wholly evidence based; opinion, ideology or religion are inadequate in this regard, in that all three are based on omitting some evidence.

It's time the general public understood this basic metric for healthy democratic governance, and dealt with the issues arising from that.

One really simple understanding that could transform our Country, without any violence.

Just pure evidence based logic. And decency.

Many claim that the British State is Christian State.  I do see the irony or discordance in my previous statement that Religious belief is not a sound basis for policy decisions.

Nonetheless.





What would Christ suggest in all of this?

Thank you for reading this blog. All we need to do is be really honest, responsive to the evidence we find,and ready to reassess when new evidence emerges. The rest is easy.

Brexit or Remain is meaningless.



If Brexit leads to the UK grass roots confronting the British Establishment and removing them from positions of power within our Democratic Institutions and transferring power and responsibility to the grass roots tax payers who fund Government, then it will have be something that fundamentally challenges the status quo of power and supports the people.
If it leads to War Crimes investigations and indictments for all those who helped promote and prosecute the War against Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and Syria, it will be truly Historic.
If it leads to the closure of Off Shore Banking, if it leads to devolution of democratic power to an awakened and active, intelligent grass roots that roots out Right-wing and Left-wing Ideology and replaces both with evidence based policy making and transparency in all areas of Governance, then it will be something extraordinary.
If it leads to the exposure of the all the deliberate failures to investigate and prosecute institutional abuse of vulnerable children then it will be meaningful.
If on the other hand, it strengthens the Establishment ....
And at present I see no evidence at all that it (Brexit) will lead to the positive, nurturant outcomes I want to see, that so many wise, intelligent, caring and vulnerable people want to see and be part of..

None.

If Remaining in the EU leads to the UK grass roots confronting the British Establishment and removing them from positions of power within our Democratic Institutions and transferring power and responsibility to the grass roots tax payers who fund Government, then it will have be something that fundamentally challenges the status quo of power and supports the people.
If it leads to War Crimes investigations and indictments for all those who helped promote and prosecute the War against Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and Syria, it will be truly Historic.
If it leads to the closure of Off Shore Banking, if it leads to devolution of democratic power to an awakened and active, intelligent grass roots that roots out Right-wing and Left-wing Ideology and replaces both with evidence based policy making and transparency in all areas of Governance, then it will be something extraordinary.

And at present I see no evidence at all that it (Remain) will lead to the positive, nurturant outcomes I want to see, that so many wise, intelligent, caring and vulnerable people want to see and be part of.

None.

The entire program is delusional and meaningless.

Either way.

The Power Inquiry on the other hand is deeply, profoundly meaningful. This link will go to a brief over view I wrote some time back.

But most will not have heard anything about the Power Inquiry.

It is worth noting that the things any power system does not promote, or prefers to minimise most often  tend to be those that undermine it's power.

Self-Governance by the people is one of those things.... voting is far removed from genuine democratic self-governance. That was the core theme of the Power Inquiry.

Self governance by a group of people, or a nation of people, means that the power to make policy decisions rests in those people, and is not devolved to a small executive - power is shared as an active, day to day social response ability and practice.

Read the Power Inquiry Report document for yourselves.

Decide for yourself based on the evidence presented in that report.

Before you go, here's a basic metric for Healthy Governance which I have written out. It's short, logical and concise.
