Something is Wrong


The CEO of Google's salary package is £138 million.  Google has entered an agreement with HMRC to pay £130 million in tax for the past 10 years.

GAP has not paid tax at all in the UK since 2011.  The minimum wage in the UK is £6.70.  The average wage is £26,500 pa.

Junior doctors are on strike, they are being asked to work 24/7 under conditions that effectively cut their pay.

Something is wrong with what we value and how it is rewarded.

Around 20,000 people in the UK earn over £20,000 a week; how can that amount be justified, or even spent?

I agree Mo. HMRC spends lots of time and money chasing the smaller companies but as we know the larger companies get away with huge amounts. As HMRC is a Govt Dept. its operastional policy is dictated by the Chancellor.

It's conditions like this that end up leading to very bloody consequences- French Revolution comes to mind.

I couldn't agree more. I fear this one sided value system will be our demise.

Support the doctors or they will leave for Scotland!
Hang Jeremy Hunt!

I didn't think you were as messed up re the purpose of government but now I'm not so sure. These situations you mentioned don't sound good. In this country the politicos talk about how they love God and walk with Jesus but every word they speak almost denies what they say and spotlights their monstrous hypocrisy. The god that drives the USA is unrepentant and unregulated capitalism.

I couldn't agree more. The question is, apart from demonstrating with banners in the street, what can we do?

Something is very wrong.
