of course he is right ... in some ways ... but in the end, his vision will result in the creation of multiple "europes" in the world : by preaching the lack of patriotism for the country wich you belong, you simply give less 'power' to it, and allow bigger entities to take the hand, like it is the case in Europe. Creating companies, even big ones, is not necessarily "only" for your own wealth, you may have a bigger vision for your country and the people that will live thanks to it.
Anyway, liberalism and free-trading are the only words that some understand nowadays, whatever the cost, while the benefit is for their single little person ... no-body can judge, simply note.
The trouble is that he assumes everyone else is as stupid as he is, so rather than make a point and allow people to read it, and make a decision, it just goes on and on and on. It just looks desperate: "PLEEEAASSE COME AND INVOLVE NEW ZEALAND SOMEHOW AND THEN I'LL BE SUCH A HERO!!! YOU HAAAVVEE TOOOO!!!!".
Sinbad, kim.com asked me to ask why you weren't replying to his TXT's. He needs you to contact him now ! Apparently we don't luv him enough...........
Actually there are far better tax havens than NZ, I was only suggesting NZ as an example that I could post facts on.
Personally, if NZ gets as 'challenging' as the EU then my co is moving to the best Tax Haven I can find.
Oh, lets be loyal to ????????????
WTF are you talking about ?
We live in a global economy that has no loyalty to any country. You really have missed the KEY POINT that GB IS NO LONGER AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY/STATE. YOU ARE NOW A MINOR PART OF THE EU. SUCK IT UP AND MOVE ON !.
You are controlled and ruled by the EU and EU Bureaucrats make your laws and choose what you will do. Sad but true !
And all EU bureaucrats care about is their paycheck, If EU businesses move themselves overseas in sufficent numbers to affect said bureaucrats paychecks then that will create a change in their behaviour, nothing else will achieve a change.
You really should study early childhood development and psychology. It is the level that Govt officials behave at (3-8) and knowledge of this gives you an advantage when dealing with this type of behaviour.
"Supervision is essential to prevent injuries as your child isn't able to anticipate the consequences of his actions.
Encourage your child to take turns and share toys. When he cries because he is told he can't have another cookie, that's something he will have to learn to get over in life."
"Most young children want what they want, when they want it! A child who is temperamentally persistent, who also feels well-loved and well listened to, might well develop an unpleasant habit of stubbornness."
"But this habit not only makes them less pleasant to be around, it also makes the children less happy. They spend a lot of time fussing and demanding, but aren't satisfied because what they want is the control, rather than the particular thing they are demanding. The answer to this is for parents to assert control in all areas, except those that they intend their young children to be able to make choices about.
Little children can make little choices."
I am surprised that I need to explain anyway. The royal families set up these structures all the time. Closer to home you have the Isle of Man structure as well. It's not part of the UK neither the EU. Why bother with a system while it's not needed in the first place.
You should read completely before posting your usual bs and insulting everybody.
I am not saying we are not part of a global economy, I am just saying that your behavior to will always screw states for your own benefits in aim to earn more money will simply result in other entities creating laws to screw you (and all the others aswell) more.
Nobody denies that 'we' are part of Europe, and that we are subject to suffer from their decisions, but anyway leaving Europe is not forbidden and staying inside seems to have some advantages, otherwise all countries would have already left. Same principle for the numerous states composing usa.
And by the way, if you do not want to be patriot with your country, free to you. Take note that there are far better countries to make money (to pay less taxes as it seems to be your ultimate goal) than your island. Time to move ? There are nice places even in Europe that are offering very good advantages for (at least some) companies (Liechtenstein, Belgium, ...).
Who raised this ? Scrawn ...........
Who gives a phuq about the UKs previous history ?
I know, Lets blame the person pointing out your sad decline to also ran status and completely ignore the topic of conversation brought up by the Devs !!
Your no longer a country, rather a sad note on a Wikipedia entry, oh , yes, the UK used to be a major world power, now they are a minor part of Europe.
Do try to move on from wallowing in your past history.
You all voted to be where you are with the Lisbon agreement, live with your choices !
yes, we (=>kids) are just waiting for the download link ^^ .
By the way, Scawen may have now the answer about vatmoss : people with knowlegde answering at phone may have surely ended their holidays today
Problem = Solved?? Delusional. It was only stated that they made a reply and it appears to have gone through. Nothing with government is ever that easy and since there has been no new update, looks like the waiting continues.
