It's really kind of like being held hostage for the sake of profit.
Pretty much. If we're not being told all the wealthy bankers will leave London, if we cap their bonuses, or all the corporations will leave if we expect them to pay corporation tax.
A nation can no longer determine its own fate in a world dominated by global capitalism. Nations are at the whim of the decisions made by corporations. If you don't play along expect to be punished or threatened with a Hobson's choice.
You clearly are a true blue , there are many ways to invest without showing up on any radar . Case in point Liam Fox , I don't think we will ever see eye to eye , what you obviously don't see and is well reported,the economical divide between rich and poor . It's gaping at the moment and when you have people like Duncan Smith living in a mansion and another millionaire telling the poor " to live on £53.00 per week" is less then contemptuous .

Actually, he does own a home in Oxfordshire. His parents lived in Berkshire, but he has a house in Oxon and one in London. He doesn't live or reside in any way in Berkshire. It's all a matter of public record. Now we got that out the way...
"Probably" invested in these companies? I could say you're "probably" a human-snake hybrid, but that doesn't make it true!
You know you can look up their financial dealings here? When you find the bit about him owning shares in a fracking firm, do point it out. And when you've done that, I suggest calling the Guardian or Independent, they'd love a scoop like that seeing as they've obviously missed it themselves................
As I said before, it's all well and good hating on them for real reasons, but let's not make up fake reasons.

Also, most of our big industry consumers of electricity no longer exist! That means there ought to be a huge surplus of electricity.
Its all a scam, and those involved should be hanging from the gallows, especialy when we have old people FREEZING TO DEATH because they cant afford to heat their homes!
In the uk there is now a saying amongs the poor "EAT OR HEAT"
Lest build the gallows!
