    UK to reject EU plans to combat multinational tax avoidance | World news | The Guardian

    The above is a report that Gauke has blocked an EU plan which essentially means multinationals would no longer be able to have branches/subs in EU territories and escape tax in other EU countries where they actually sell stuff.

    This is a continuation of a policy that had its last serious outing in 2011.

    Compare Gauke protecting his friends and perhaps contributors in big business with his continued heartless and relentless campaign against the "lifeblood of the economy", self employed and small businesses.

    Try and keep it polite please.

    If you can't say anything nice then don't say anything. I predict a quiet thread.

    Good for David that hypocrisy doesn't kill. Sickening? Yes. Surprising? Not one bit. Dude is a textbook sociopath, won't be happy until every single one of us is dead and buried.

    Since we are discussing DG, I cannot help but rerun this.

    It really tells you all you need to know about this man.
    If there ever was a more blatantly double-faced mf in all of British politics, I've yet to see him (and God knows competition is fierce).



    Also, just for laughs...Gauke performs magic trick, transforms 847 responses into 20

    This not not getting the coverage it needs , this just disappears and none of the MP's are raising this issue . There is no pressure on Gauke to respond or react to these news , he just ignores. It is disappointing we cannot do anything to have some accountability in HMRC and the powers it has .

    Unfortunately "politician lies" is just not news.

    It has to be "politician lies and IT industry brought to its knees".

    Remember Edwina Currie?

    Probably as decent a politician as any other and what is she remembered for?

    1. Killing the egg industry
    2. An affair with John Major

    Politicians have no shame and can hide behind the old lie of something being good for the majority.

    Oh, the IT industry is doing great.... it is just that "the industry" is more and more reduced to a handful of big consultancies.
    Exactly how Gauke and friends like it: few interlocutors, easy to make arrangements with, easy to get kickbacks from.
    SMEs and freelancers...not so much.
