What do you mean, Lordo, that foreign workers are not lining up in their millions to enter the UK with their degrees and high entry application fees just so to meet the high score entry qualification terms, just so that they can work for peanuts at fast foods, in fields picking fruits and vegetables, delivery drivers, waiters/waitresses, cooks, bus drivers, street cleaners and so on. :lol:

But we were told these highly educated people would come after Brexit at any cost, and if they did not, it will be their loss, because the UK citizens would do the work instead. :D

I guess they did not figure out that the reason these low paid workers were coming in the first place was because the UK citizens in general would not do these work in the first place. :D

But hey, at least they got rid off all those Polish people from the UK who were giving the UK a bad name. :D

Yeah, always be careful what you ask for, because you might end up getting it. :wink:

The real issue is the lower limit of which people earning less cannot come to uk now which is set at 25K a year. This excludes some junior doctors and nurses too. The lunacy of this government has no limits. Although one sector of the working class have done well out of it. The truck drivers have just had a 30% pay rise but of course the price wil be paid ultimately by the public with higher prices.

Never mind, stupid is stupid does. Not that I am advocation people should be earning less.

Very interesting topic of conversation today about how to pay for care for the elderly and the fact that the Tories have promised in their manifesto not to raise VAT, Tax or national Insurance. The narrative pushed forward that this is a pledge they will have to break by raining National Insurance, not only to pay for care for the elderly but also to begin to pay for the costs of dealing with the pandemic.
However, there is no discussion as to which pledge should be broken. There are three so let’s have a look at which one should be broken as clearly one has to be broken.
Lets take VAT – this is known as the poor mans’ tax as everybody whether they are working or not paying it and like for like they are paying the same value. Naturally a person on above average wage feel this tax far less than those who are below it and it hurts the poor most
National Insurance – Even people who earn lass that the tax allowance pay National Insurance but people who are earning more than 19,000 pounds a year pay no national Insurance do not pay anything above the cap of 19,000. Again this hits the poor people who are working and are finding it hard to survive sometimes doing three jobs but still find themselves unable to cope so thewy claim Universal Credit to be able to survive as well as visit food banks.
Tax – Raising the basic level of tax hits everybody but again it hits the lower paid far more than the higher earners.
There is only one way to rais taxes in this situation is to raise the top level of tax so people who earn more than say 50,000 a year pay more tax on their earnings above the 50,000. There is as yet the very wealthy which tend to avoid paying tax by using offshore accounts and these are as much as 100 billion pounds a year. In reality just stopping the tax avoidance will cover for all our health needs.

Now, once upon a time there was a man who found out where the magic money tree was at and they made sure he did not come to power. The claim was his spending wil lbe over 300 billion and he would bankrup us. And yet here we are it cost us 400 billion so far just to stand still and the billioners make billions out of us and yet we are still standing.

Never mind shit for food means shit for brains. We hope for better days once the working class wake up from the nightmare of Brexit.

Finally action taken against tax evasion enablers. As little as it is, it is a start but notice it is only now they have decided that they needed additional resouces to do this. I wonder when they will take seriously the matter and go after the evaders themselves.

You cannot make it up. The put up NI by 1.25% to collect 12 Billion and the processing will take up 2 billion of it?

WTF is going on this government. How much of that is going to their consultant friends?

Ok La La Land is the UK...
Preliminarily the majority of us in Cyprus don't give a shit.
The elitist cypriot parents might worry of having to pay much more in providing their butterboys and girls genuine 'Royal" education at Britisk Universities, but that's their problem.
