Comment: Another setup from the big 4 accountancy firms (Score 1) 602

this is actually an announcement of new tax loop holes but spun as a shutting down old ones.

The big 4 accountancy firms in the uk regularly place staff in the treasury as a gift , this allows them to get privileged information about the the new tax rules , by the time the rules are implemented these firms already have tax avoidance schemes setup to exploit them which then they then sell on , typically each scheme will raise them several times the cost of the staff secondment to the treasury.

labour , libdem and conservative all do this , please if you can vote in the uk vote green so this will stop.

actually not , most people in the world are too poor to afford meat unless they grow it themselves and even then they eat it sparingly. This has been ever since humans have traded foodstuffs.

Meat is a diet for rich western people who have first world medical facilities , for most of the world , eating meat is a cruel joke , a slow suicide of the planet as land used for meat production is typically orders of magnitude less resource efficient.

there i fixed it for you , now please fix your diet and mindset
