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.


What would Christ suggest in all of this?

Kindest regards

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.
