The Taxpayer’s Alliance – supporting tax havens to undermine democracy

Posted on

The Taxpayer's Alliance and IoD's new report on tax is amazing in many ways - mostly for the obvious abuses it wants to promote in society. Take this example, of obvious interest to me:

So le's ignore the tax evasion and the crime and instead say these are moral places.

Why are they moral? Because they subvert the will of democratially elected governemtns to impose taxes their people ask for. That's why they're moral.

This is the perverted and fundamentally anti-democratic morality of the far right in action.

And that's what this report is about - ignoring the wishes of people and imposing the wishes of the minority - even if, and maybe especially if, it helps money launderers and tax evaders.
