Quick question

Shell will announce the next stage of its global restructuring on Monday, which will result in thousands more job losses.

If \”creating jobs\” is a good thing, if \”protecting jobs\” is a good thing, why aren\’t we subsidising Shell?

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    More to the point, I have always wanted a butler. And I could do with a gardener as well. If creating jobs is a good thing, why doesn’t the Government pay me to hire a few?

  2. I thought HMG was subsidising Shell.

    As we all know transactions need not be in monetary terms and Britain did exchange a chunk of national pride/reputation (and a cancer ridden spy) in return for oil concessions on Shell’s behalf.

  3. Given the amount of UK tax Shell pays (“lots”), I think that was decent value for money on HMG’s part.

    (and frankly anyone who thinks less of the UK or of Scotland for releasing Megrahi is a twunt whose opinion we should ignore).
