The fact that this has been going on for so many years, using "loopholes" in the law, which are of course there by design to allow such practices
for big business, shows the contempt the politicians have for the taxpayers of this country.
All that lobbying by big corporations sure does seem to pay off, and it has to end, right now.
If those corporations want to do business here then they should pay the price. After all, it's not a case that they wouldn't be making money, just
that they wouldn't be making as much. So this is down to pure greed by those corporations and their big shareholders. The tax shortfall therefore
has to be made up elsewhere, and it's always the little guy, small businesses and the public taxpayers who get stung because of the greed of the
If they don't like paying the taxes here then tough, leave, we got along just fine before and we'll be just fine when they are gone. It's not like
they contribute much anyway!
It's also time to outlaw lobbyibg completely. It has been shown time and time again to be riddled with corruption at high levels and should be
stopped right now. Any politician found meeting with corporate representatives, outside of their specific duties, and in secret without transcripts
of those discussions should be sacked and jailed.
