a little civilly put question for you john.

did you just copy and paste that post out of the tory and/or better together handbook?


Its only civil if you dont follow it with "tory and/or better together handbook"

Lets be frank here, just because your capacity to learn or understand is limiting, it does not mean the rest of us have to keep stopping to help you catch up or even worse, move at your pace.
If i had copy/pasted i would have given a source

It is quite telling that you're now criticising 'in work benefits' yet only a few weeks back you were all for the 'state' just giving people UBI to everyone

I'm sitting here thinking who is this person on t'internet saying big companies wont move to save costs, i guess you weren't around in the 80's then. Go and ask someone what factories and businesses they know off who moved to save costs, then ask what was the economic effect on that area.

Ohh and BTW whatever wages are paid, low or not, the employee may or may not pay Tax but the employer(which is what i said) will pay tax and NI for all employees..

BTW i also buy stuff from the channel islands, no tax, no vat and no benefit to the exchequer. I'm sure that they or maybe even low tax Ireland would love to welcome any multinationals to their area despite you thinking they're a curse.

This is a start ...

''A hotel owner who increased his staff's pay to at least 9 an hour by scrapping service charges and giving employees a share of the profits said the decision has led to a more productive - and happy - workforce.

Harry Cragoe, owner of The Gallivant hotel in Camber, East Sussex, said he believed it was "unfair" that staff who worked in the restaurant would receive tips while employees elsewhere in the company would not.

As a result, the establishment has become one of the first in the UK to alter its pay structure to pay staff at least the National Living Wage.

Speaking to the Huffington Post UK, Cragoe said that when staff were told about the new pay structure, "everyone spontaneously clapped".

maybe not a copy and paste then but the exact same stance you often belittled in the indy thread.

you attempt to constantly make yourself more intelligent than other shows you to be the dimwit you are.

you clearly dont understand reality for people on poor wages.
if you work you should be paid enough so benefits are no longer needed. simple.
i clearly said "well UBI is good enough for our royals so it must be good enough for everyone else." so yet again your lying about what people say.

what happened in the 80s is not relevant to todays tax dodgers.
what companies in the 80s moved to avoid paying their full share of tax?

so the company will pay the tax yet they dont pay it all..ie google amazon etc

no surprise there....you dont think anyone should pay tax but youl still use all the services people who pay their full amount are paying for. your no better than a benefits cheat or subsidy junkie.

I fully expect that the Unions will attempt to have him shut down 'in the interest of maintaining wages and conditions".

Will boycott him and his suppliers to such an extent that his business will collapse, the staff will be retrenched and the Unions will proclaim a victory for upholding the wages and conditions of all workers.
