No, you don’t Love, really, you don’t

As a Patriotic Millionaire, part of a network from multiple industries and of differing backgrounds who want a more just, stable and inclusive economy and the end of extreme wealth, I see tax as investment in our public services and I would welcome being required to pay more tax as a person with the privilege of wealth.

Because all you’ve got to do is read this page and you will find out how to do so. You seem not to have, therefore you don’t want to.

  1. Bloke in North Dorset

    I wish they’d fuck off and live somewhere else, virtue isn’t conditional. Alternatively, stand for parliament of a ticket of higher taxes and see where that get you.

  2. I find it amusing that they don’t accept payments from the proceeds of crime even though they encourage courts to strip criminals of their ill gotten gains. “Joined up thinking? We’ve heard of it.”

  3. Julia Davies is a millionaire is she? Wardrobe by Oxfam hairstyling by kitchen scissors. You really do need a better class of millionaire.

  4. Patriotic Millionaires UK is powered by Patriotic Millionaires International Limited, a UK company limited by guarantee.

    Seems legit.

  5. Boganboy nails it as ever

    There is no voluntary element- these people dislike rich people volunteering for anything – doesn’t guarantee a flow of money into left wingers

  6. The Guardian is now publishing articles by patriots? And self-confessed millionaires?

    I’m getting old, I can’t keep up. These people used to be scum and Tory bastards.

  7. Patriotic Millionaires International Limited,
    Seems legit.
    Sounds more like a contradiction in terms to me.

  8. “The Guardian is owned by Guardian Media Group which has only one shareholder – The Scott Trust”

    The Scott Trust Ltd – Accounts to 3/4/2022
    Net Assets £1,282,600,000
    Profit before tax £156,300,000
    UK Corporation Tax £200,000

  9. “The low-tax, small-state dogma that this government is still blindly clinging to ”
    Low tax. Really. REALLY?!

  10. Dennis, Pointing Out The Obvious

    Anyone who says “I see tax as an investment…” is selling bullshit by the ton.

    Same with anyone who claims they’d “gladly” pay more taxes if such and such (you choose) is done with that additional tax.

  11. They do believe on low taxes (for them) and small government (for them).

    Taking from others to spunk away as the see fit is just civic society.

    Orwell really was a rank amateur when it comes to abuse of language compared to these scum.

  12. “Shouldn’t it be that as we get old and die, we recognise that we’ve been supported by the nation and by the young and that we make a contribution back through our inheritance tax to the present generations and future generations?”

    Eh?

  13. HMRC should have a division chasing sales leads such as this rich cow – ring them and say we heard you would like to pay more tax how can we help.

  14. “Shouldn’t it be that as we get old and die, we recognise that we’ve been supported by the nation and by the young and that we make a contribution back through our inheritance tax to the present generations and future generations?”

    I hope this doesn’t sound selfish or anything, but after decades of paying more tax every year than most people earn in net wages – and having absolutely nothing to show for it – I wouldn’t give “the nation” the steam off my shite.

    Fuck off and eat bleach, you thieving bastards.

  15. Dennis: Anyone who says “I see tax as an investment…” is selling bullshit by the ton.

    I don’t know so much because, revealingly, it works for her the other way around just as well: i.e. “I see investments as a tax (on the poor)”.

  16. Lying scumbag and Nadhim should sue her for libel. This came up because he was ultra-careful, not careless, about his own tax when he was appointed Chancellor. It is now public knowledge that the extra tax is due to HMRC disagreeing with the Zahawis about the allocation of shares when Nadhim set up YouGov with some funding from his father.

  17. – and having absolutely nothing to show for it –

    Come now, Steve. Fifteen minute cities, carbon free energy systems and the nationwide accomodation of asylum seekers don’t just build themselves, you know. Your cup runneth over.

  18. Is the Guardian trolling its own readership now? Hosting an article by someone boasting that they are a millionaire who is dying to pay more tax, yet doesn’t pay a penny more than legally required, seem somewhat inflammatory….

  19. “The Guardian is owned by Guardian Media Group which has only one shareholder – The Scott Trust” is a lie, of course, as the next line showed:

    “The Scott Trust Ltd – Accounts to 3/4/2022”

    Those rascally tax-dodgers, eh?

  20. Those stinking rich wealth creators accumulating 3-4% of the value their innovations bring to the world, and government already gets around 4/10ths of the other 96%. It’s just not enough for some whingers.
    I loved the Tom Sowell answer to the question about how does government create wealth : “realise that some people are good at creating it and then get out of their way”.
    I wish he’d been asked the opposite question; how does government destroy wealth.

  21. “inclusive economy”. In what sense is any economy not “inclusive”? Not much point in having one if people can’t use it!
