Campaign Issue 1: Our National Services are Failing
The UK's National Services are failing rapidly! The NHS is in the worst state since its inception 66 yrs ago. 75% of hospitals are in the red and the deficit is on target for £30bn by 2020. This is forcing staff cuts, A&E closures, lengthening patient treatment delays and the privatisation of UK hospitals.
Drastic government spending cuts and reducing budgets are causing a sharp fall in police staff and affecting the ability of the police force to maintain a sufficient level of service at all times. This leaves us vulnerable to a rise in crime and gang violence.
Campaign Issue 2: We are losing billions through Corporate Tax Avoidance Loopholes:
The UK is losing billions of revenue each year through Corporate Tax Avoidance. Multi National Companies use loophole strategies to divert profits to offshore entities, thereby paying negligible taxes on the revenue generated by UK residents. As an example: In 15 years of trading upto 2013 Starbucks has paid just £8.6M tax on £3Bn of UK sales. This is a circa 2% tax rate compared to the 20% - 45% that is being paid by UK residents. Individual consumers are generating vast profits for these corporates yet our country is not benefiting fairly from the tax revenues we deserve.
By stopping the billions of tax revenue being lost through corporate tax avoidance the government can save the NHS and stop the spending cuts that are destroying the Police Force, Fire Service and other National Services.
The solution is a simple MAT TAX (Minimum Alternative TAX). This is essentially a new corporate tax which the Government can apply on UK generated revenue of MNCs before costs are deducted. This will prevent these companies from using offshore tax loopholes to artificially increase costs and reduce their UK profit, thus ensuring that the UK receives the full tax revenue that is owed by these corporations.
The HMRC has often been accused of losing it's nerve and being too mild when dealing with Multi National Corporations. However with the severity of the problems facing the NHS and our National Services we need them and our government to take strong action and put in place the MAT tax legislation which will permanently end corporate tax avoidance.
