You forgot the sign-off...Memo

Thank you for your contribution to last night’s Question Time.
However, future appearances on this programme will be jeopardised if you continue to contradict/offend other panellists and, especially, the Presenter, by insisting on introducing facts and logic into your replies.
imo a lowish (20%) flat tax is optimal. Does away with all the exemptions, avoidance, evasion, etc along with most HMRC, Treasury etc staff costs and lawyers, tax advisors etcCan we have universality on payment of tax so everyone pays one rate regardless of income?
Or does labour only work in one direction?
C4 News were badgering Gove about rumours C4 was to lose Gov't TV Licence fundingWatching it now, about a third into it.
Much the worst episode in terms of one-sided questioning and FB interventions.
BBC now not interested in impartiality, perhaps because it knows the game's up and only a Corbyn win will see its survival in current form.
Exactly. Competition = lower cost for NHS/Gov't/TaxpayersThey're not "NHS documents." They're documents detailing preliminary exploratory meetings with the US to determine what the agenda should be for post-Brexit trade negotiations (trade negotiations being not-allowed before we leave). If the US asks for access to the NHS market to be on the agenda then:-
a) it does not mean that they will be given carte blanche to "buy up" the NHS.
b) it does not mean that the NHS will buy their drugs if they can buy them cheaper elsewhere.
c) it does mean that if they can provide clinical services cheaper than Virgin (where the NHS has already
privatisedcontracted out) then why not?
d) it does mean that if they can provide drugs cheaper than the EU then whoohoo!
My bold - that's where you're going wrong, it's not the value of your home; it's the value Labour decide and you must accept.Let me try to get this Corbyn/McDonnell concept of nationalising companies ‘without borrowing’ straight.
Instead of a business I part own (e.g. because my pension fund provider is a shareholder), let’s use my home as an example.
A Labour government would buy my home using taxpayers’ money (i.e. mine), evict me and take it into State ownership (but it’s not borrowing).
A Labour government would then give me a bond for my home in lieu of money (but it’s not borrowing).
I would be unable to redeem my bond for the value of my home because this would entail the Labour government having to sell my home on (but it’s not borrowing).
I would be homeless and own a bond I can only redeem if the Labour government pays me back the value of my home (but it’s not borrowing).
Let’s call these ‘bonds’ what they actually are, i.e. IOUs (but it’s not borrowing).
Tories should have sent JRM. The bloke has presence and actually goes down well in a lot of Labour areas, especially the Brexit voting ones. His performance on QT from Bishop Auckland was definitely memorable. Sadly Cleverly is a dull non-entity.Tonight from Hull on QT
Annaliese Dodds - Labour
James Cleverly - Conservative
Ian Blackford - SNP
Richard Tice - Brexit Party
Ed Davey - Lib Dems
Same here, one of the best services this site provides is the weekly running commentary on QT that absolves me of actually having to watch this sh*t, I watch Talking Pictures Channel instead which makes much more sense.And...I'll be monitoring it on here, rather than watch the dull shit on the box
