Sure, the accountancy costs can be prohibitive for some small businesses, but every legal framework to avoid paying tax, such as Amazon and Google enjoy, is available to small business.
Tax avoidance is legal, tax evasion is not.
I am self employed, I work within the law and exploit any legislation which helps me pay less tax.
It is up to the people to force government to change the laws they are unhappy with.
I am also self employed but do not believe in exploiting tax laws. I agree with you about people forcing the government to change the laws, which is why I will be voting Labour!

Could this be one reason why May called the election in such a hurry?

Do you want a Muslim in at no 10? You'll get that eventually if you vote to the left and when they get in their foot in the door, we'll have big probs and all those on the left will be changing to the right..
They already run a lot of councils in the UK and put their people up the ladder into council housing ahead of anyone else.

Election it is!
another attempt to derail our referendum result perhaps?
Or is she seeing it as her chance to gain a huuuuuge majority now that Labour is in such a mess?
Yes, it would alter the methodology and it would alter the kind of Brexit Britain gets. I understand the social principles you have in your heart, there are many that I share, having experienced the hardships of unemployment and being thrown on the scrapheap. I'm working now, however, 4 years of unemployment took its toll on me, but I will not belabour the struggle I went through.
What you want to see in society is the same thing I want, but that kind of society is not for this time, it really isn't, there are too many mindsets around who reject it, and it isn't just the Tories. For you and I to see the society we want, we have to recognise the path to be taken to get there. There is no magic wand that can be waved to bring it about. The society we want is for another, more civilised time, and that is many decades away.
We need the most successful brexit we can achieve, and only the alleged 'corporatist swine' currently leading Britain can set down the 'Brexit' path that will lay the foundations to the society we want. The Tories are the only party more united than the other parties, who are fractured and divided by mindset.
This coming snap election is not about parties, it is about country, it is about what is best for Britain, not just in years to come, but about right now, this present moment. We cannot allow ourselves to think and act in a partisan way, we have to recognise that a strong Britain now, gives us a greater opportunity to change it to the society we want down the line. Any other way is to push it further from our grasp. It may not be a palatable thing to taste, but it is the way.
I hope you can see this and accept it?
The party with the most principled members...
