Hard right's post-Brexit policy wet dream

So here we have it, Brextard useful idiots, RotM et al

Rees-Mogg said this would only be possible if the government pursued a policy of free trade, reduced regulation and lower taxes. He believe corporation tax should be almost halved to 10%, and stamp duty lowered to help the London property market.

Un-fucking-believable!  Help the London property market?  Halve corp tax!  Reduce regulation! 

The Labour MP Chuka Umunna, who supports the anti-hard Brexit campaign group Open Britain, said it was “deeply concerning” that Fox’s department was tweeting apparent support for the Economists for Free Trade report.

He said: “The government claims that rights which protect working people will be unaffected by Brexit. But now Liam Fox’s department is supporting a report which calls for employment rights to be slashed after we leave the EU.”


Now we're seeing exactly what was predicted and dismissed as 'project fear' by Brextards, the insidious creeping of hard rightist self service from the 1% with investments in tax havens.

Not just him though, is it?

The James Dyson interview with Andrew Marr was explicitly even more extreme. He wanted to abolish Corporation Tax altogether and cut the "red tape" to make it easier to hire and fire.

Well hiring people has always been easy so guess where any "advance" will come there.

James Dyson, of course, closed his factory in the UK, putting 500 people out of work when he did, and moved his manufacturing to Malaysia. James Dyson pays no tax in this country as it is.

Brexit is a wet dream made rapidly being made reality for the unacceptable face of capitalism.

God help us.
