‘Foreigners’ lol. It’s got nothing to do with benefitting foreigners. 

I didn’t say it would be perfect, just explained how it benefits us. It encourages trade balances to shift in our favour. If uk businesses experience increased trade, then uk workers experience increased earnings and job opportunities. It’s economic stimulation.

And I agree on abolishing taxes on economic activity across the board. This however is a logical starting place. Get cash flowing in, rather than simply flowing around.

Yes, I get that but, ultimately it's going to take too long to get to the point where it benefits the people that need it the most or, A lot of the extra money generated will stay in the companies and people will see very little or no benefit from it.

 

'VAT free shopping for overseas visitors' is about benefiting foreigners - it's chucking them a sweetener to get them to spend their money here.

I just think that our own should have the same or better terms than we're giving to foreigners.

How some people have the audacity to moan that our country is becoming like the third world when they openly welcome the third world into our country is beyond my logic !

It's not looking good - we're either going to end up with a remainer or someone without British heritage.    Whoever they put in place,  I think we could do with a general election soon afte

They inherited low inflation, low mortgage rates tied to low interest rates. 14k police, but an untold number of illegal and legal immigrants, countering all investment in NHS schools etc. G

I’m not suggesting it’s a “start” but the cold hard truth is something different always has to “start” somewhere.

I have no doubt it will all be bollocks because 70 years says it will, but we can only hope it actually is a start of a different mindset.

Whatever the mindset behind it, 70 years of poison leading up to the highest taxes in history while the country gets worse won’t be solved at the stroke of a pen…..it’s time and pain and a fair bit of suffering.

It will hopefully encourage more to come here on holiday and spend more imho i don't think it will encourage them to holiday here in their millions. I think it's another gimmick tbh and it won't make a difference a bit like the room tax you have to pay when holidaying in some country's which thousands of brits are willing to pay .

For those earning over a 150 thousand its a bonus and feck the rest of us, basically Tories looking after their own as usual. Investing in the country rather than reducing tax on super rich would bring economic growth and benefit us all directly improving infrastructure and jobs, then following the EU with a tax on the mega profits of energy firms would reduce the longer term tax burden a little. Basically we and our children will be paying back the debts for generations to come.

People in Bolton North East failed to see where the Plan for Growth will help those struggling to pay bills

UK tax revenue is below the average of other developed economies. The UK stands out as raising less from social security contributions.

 

 

And yet taxation is the highest it’s ever been……that’s a conundrum isn’t it !

Maybe Arthur Laffer was onto something ?

Giving them an incentive to give us money. Just because it benefits them too doesn’t mean it is about benefitting them. It’s entire intention is to benefit out economy. It has draw backs (dropping tax revenues) and will clearly also benefit foreigners (tax break) but it’s just wrong to declare that it is only intended to be to the benefit of ‘foreigners’. It’s like saying we only grow wheat to benefit pigeons.

If I was to guess I’d say the UK has a bit of a trade deficit right now and they wanted to fix that but they didn’t have the bottle to completely wipe out such a considerable tax stream at a time of such poor government finances. VAT is a huge earner for public finances.

With this tax break, the tanking pound, and the massive national marketing event that happened recently, I’d say the UK looks very appealing to foreigners to come and contribute to our GDP right now.

By encouraging economic activity. Literally creating economic growth. Literally adding income to businesses to create healthier finances. You don’t see how that helps British workers?

This has even less to do with illegal immigrants than it does ‘foreigners’.

Why is the UK taxing us less than some other countries a bad thing ?

Looking at the the graphs, we in the U.K. are taxed lower than some countries, higher than other countries.

If the figures said we are the highest taxed in the developed world, people would complain, 

if we were the lowest taxed in the developed world, others would complain!

Go figure ?

Or, as someone once said: " there are lies, damned lies.....and statistics! "

Cheers.
