Codyarrow... (As far as I'm concerned the Tory party is the party of tax avoidance and always will be. I wonder how much personal money the cabinet members have moved out of the UK in the last 18 months....

We get that much rubbish during an election it might well be untrue but certainly sounds tory like?
apparently the tories wanted out of Europe over some European law/rules to do with transparency of money, the thought of paying tax on there wealth scared the life out of them?
Is there any truth in that?

Which simply displays your ignorance. Avoiding paying more tax than you have to is legal. I do it, thousands of self employed people do it, and oddly enough many will be Labour voters. So maybe the Labour party is also the party of tax avoidance. That is why we have an accountant so that we pay no more tax than we are due. If you are happy to just keep paying what HMRC says then more fool you. They are dealing with the tax affairs of millions of people, my accountant deals with a dozen or so, and can therefore dig a bit deeper.

Tax evasion on the other hand is not legal. There is a difference.

And the answer to your last question is NO! The Conservatives accepted the will of the majority of those who voted and that vote was to leave the EU. DEMOCRACY - something that your beloved Corbyn couldn't get his head around and neither can you it seems.

I think you need to read that again Bob that was a question, I never said anything about tax avoidance?

I think you need to read the first line of that post again. You'll find the words "tax avoidance" front and centre.

And for easker's benefit does he really suppose that, for example, Sir Alan Sugar, a well known multi-millionaire and Labour supporter is going to cough up one penny more in tax that he absolutely has to? He'll have a whole team of tax lawyers to ensure that his tax bill is the barest minimum he can get away with within the confines of the law - just! He won't be alone in that and there will be as many Labour voters as there are Conservative voters.

STAYING AT HOME!
The Premiership are desperate for TV money so they have been trialing social distancing football (SDF). Basically football where players have to stay 2m apart. Apparently there are only a few minor rule changes to iron out (staggered walls at free kicks for example) but otherwise it looks promising.
Any player who is approached closer than 2m by another player immediately falls to the ground and roles away 10 or 15m and then writhes around as if dying. A Premiership spokesman said SDF is indistinguishable from standard football.

You're showing your ignorance of not being able to read a post properly or make one with humour or humility. Those are my words not Speytimes.
So going on to facts footballers pay proportionately more tax than similar high earners, do more unpaid work in the community and many have stopped their clubs furloughing club staff. So maybe targets should be placed elsewhere?

Well bob you have certainly shown a level of ignorance rarely seen, when someone makes an attempt to humiliate someone and makes a total fool of themselves in the process its basic courtesy to apologise, I think the post speaks volumes about your character.
