While Socialist Occupy Protestors Call Punitive Tax On Weath, Socialist Tony Blair Pays 5% Tax

With Harriet Harman's Inequsalitries Bill having for the first time enshrined the superiority of minorities over the mainstream you might think at last there was some chance of making the elite live by the same rules as the rest of us. No chance as Tony Blair's use of offshotre tax havens and shell companies to blatantly doge tax shows.

Daily Stirrer writers have told you often what a bunch of hypocrites and self serving scumbags lefties are. More moderate souls may blanch at such language and tell us it is not the way to win an arguement. Well in our experience (and we all have a lot of experience) there is no more chance of persuading a leftie to let go of their certyainties and open their minds to other possibilities than of persuading a doorstep evangelist to convert to atheism. So let us tell you the story of a leftie (a former Labour Prime Minister) and his tax return.

For most people, getting the sack is the start of a tsunami of financial troubles. Not for Tony Blair however. The former Prime Ministers, traitor and war criminal's removal from Downing Street opened the door to great wealth, privilege and a lucrative career as felcher in chief to the rich and powerful.

But a income of over lthough his income was 12 million the last financial year, Mr Blair only paid 315,000 in tax or less than 5%.

How is that possible?

Two short words. Blair Inc.

The former Labour (and remember Labour claims to be "The People's Party) leader's huge income derives from an almost impetestrable web off offshore shell companies unofficially known as Blair Inc. This complicated network not only allows the full extent of Blairs earnings to remain hidden, it allows money to be kept on the move, always just ahead of tax deadlines.

The 12 million income, up 42% on the previous year, was filed by Windrush Ventures, one of Mr Blairs many companies, this particular one being registered in a Caribbean tax haven. However, almost 11 million of this income was written off as administrative expenses and hence classed as tax allowable.

This brought total profits for the company down to just over 1 million. Corporation tax was levied on this at 28%, resulting in a bill of just 315,000.

City accountants have been scratching their heads at this large expenses figure. The accounts show that Mr Blair paid 2.3 million in wages to 26 staff in the last tax year. A further 300,000 went on office equipment, while 550,000 was spent on rent for Mr Blairs Mayfair business base.

Now in my heyday I had to set up a corporation, one of hundreds of Information Technology freelancers forced to do so by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs. When I submitted my accounts showing 30% operating expenses the taxman queried every item. And go my expenses down to 28%. The Irony was though making freelancers operate limited companies was supposed to stamp on tax evasion all the specialists working in various fields were just that, specialists in our field and thus not well equipped to navigate the labyrinth of tax and corporate law that governs corporate entities.

So we all hired accountants who were specialists in the field we freelancers were not. And those accountants earned their fees by ensuring of finances were arranged in such a way that the Revenue service ended up with much less than we would have been happy to pay had they left us alone.

If any freelancing professionals had gone to their accountants and tried to say their operating expences were over ninety per cent of company revenue however, they would have been shown the door. So why not Blair? And why are the Revenue not crawling over his business affairs to find out what he has ben up to. As things stand almost 8 million of expenses completely unaccounted for in his company accounts. And that obly covers the earnings we know about, not including gratuities from various oli sheiks, unsavoury third world tyrants, Bilderbergers and New World Order shits in recognition of services rendered.

Much of this figure may have gone towards footing the frequent overseas trips made by Mr Blair and his business entourage. Analysis by The Sunday Telegraph this week revealed that in just 12 months, the former PM made 61 trips abroad totalling almost 224,000 miles of travel.

Most of those trips involved public speaking engagements or "consultancy" (schmoozing) and of course the earnings from such activities would be paid to one of Blair's corporations operating out of a pigeon hole in a mail drop address in one of those little nations not known for the transparency of it's ompany laws and financial regulation.

Blair's attitude to wealth and tax is typical of the lefties who form the new elite. One law for them, another for the rest of us.

How To Minimise Your Tax Bill (from Yahoo News)

How to do it...

Practically, setting up your own business will garner the largest tax advantages if your earnings are high enough to push you into the upper income tax brackets (as Mr Blairs do).

All business profits are subject to Corporation Tax. This is charged at 20% for profits under 300,000. A marginal (inclining) rate is charged if profits are between 300,000 and 1.5 million and the full rate of 26% (25% in the 2012/13 tax year) is levied on profits exceeding 1.5 million. However these profit boundaries apply after tax allowable expenses including your own salary have been deducted.

The idea is to take a salary out of these takings that is taxed at the 20% income tax rate.

An example...

Say your business took 300,000 of income in the 2011/12 tax year. The first job is to write off any allowable expenses. For this example lets peg this figure at 100,000 made up of a 35,000 salary for yourself and 65,000 for other admin costs.

These expenses can then be written off immediately, leaving profits of 200,000. Corporation tax at 20% is due on this, giving a bill of 40,000.

Meanwhile your 35,000 salary is subject to 20% basic rate income tax, after youve had your personal allowance, which stands at 7,475 this year. So 27,525 of your salary is subject to a 20% levy, giving an income tax bill of 5,505 and a net pay packet for the year of 29,495, minus National Insurance of course.

So your total tax bill for the year with salary would come to 45,505. Thats 15.16% of your original 300,000 income. And even when you take expenses out of the equation, youre still not paying any more than 20% tax equivalent to a basic rate earner on any of your profits.

In context, if you had earned 300,000 from a full time or self-employed job (after expenses), income tax at 50% would be levied.

In addition, the remaining 160,000 sitting in the business account can be used to fund your pension (tax free), pay out dividends or finance directors loans: three extremely tax-advantageous ways to make the most of your company cash.

Criminal damage in Cambridge reveals the police soft peddaling on Extinction Rebellion crimes Nobody is allowed to walk on the grass outside Trinity College Cambridge.

Otherwise, set one foot on that sacred turf and you will soon find yourself experiencing the full force of Newtonian gravity; rugby-tackled to the ground by a puce-faced porter in a bowler hat.

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
