So we’d better leave the EU then, eh Murph?

I have no objection to the state subsidising business: that is, in fact one of its tasks in my opinion. But I do think this best done by direct subsidy on the merit of each case and that the state should partner in the returns made. That process is a long way removed from blanket tax reliefs that are designed to remove the state from the decision making process to the greatest possible degree whilst leaving it with all the costs.

Given that we’re not allowed to have state aid?

  1. And then there’s TTIP, which Diane Abbott told C4 News last night they were “watching closely”. For ‘closely’ read ‘helplessly’, ‘impotently’, … we could keep going

  2. “I have no objection to the state subsidising business”

    Well, no, has Richie ever seen a state expenditure he didn’t like? Gotta spend all that tax revenues on something, right?

  3. “Gotta spend all that tax revenues on something, right?”

    Well yes actually. If tax revenues aren’t spent how will they move through the economy?

    Of course it’s far better to lower tax rates if we ever end up with a surplus again.
