Literally dragging their heels over this. The biggest opposition was from EU bloc nations.

Now Ireland have eventually signed up to this but it's a minimum threshold. i.e. they're still highly comfortable about letting US multinational's get away with complex tax arrangements in the EU to lower the amount they pay.

I don't see how you could look at Labour and the Conservatives on health and say "both parties are the same"

But did I say that? Did I really? That seems like a misunderstanding of what I said.

The last Labour government did a lot of good in the NHS. Correct. 👍.

Specifically on long term sickness and getting people back to work, however, I don't recall them having solved the issues. In fact there was a lot of news about people being better off out of work rather than in work. Hence the Tory attempt at UC to give people "purpose". That was the whole thing with Ian Duncan Smith, he didn't see how paying people to stay at home long term sick was better for them than giving them work opportunities.

So whilst I agree Labour and Conservative records are vastly different, neither have solved the issues of long term sickness have they?

Incredibly poor color accessibility.

The policy is what exactly? Totally confused by the story within a story about Labour rebellions and former Home Secretaries.

They should, but then they'd be replaced by other US multinationals. So they won't.

The EU (and not just the EU by the way) loves US tech. It can't get enough. They both play a cat and mouse game with each other for the public but the EU aren't going to force MS out and MS aren't going to leave.

Put it another way, of the EU wanted to be principled and demand fairness for EU citizens they'd take away MS (and other US multinational's) tax breaks via Dublin. But they're not going to do that.

Great aim but I don't see what this Labour government is going to do to make the situation better given the last government couldn't nor could the last Labour government for that matter.

We've gone from it being worse in work than out on benefits, to Universal Credit, to being stigmatised for being long term ill such that why would you bother.

Harder choices than what we're prepared for are needed. Good luck to them 👍.

Who do you mean with leader? Max is not a leader.

Max doesn't just show up and put in a driving shift over the race weekend and then clock off on Sunday. Of course he's leader within the team. He may not be the leader but he's a super important part of the team. Any driver in his position would be. Same with Hamilton same with Alonso, same with Lecrec. They're all leaders and role models in their team.

Before Newey you had a designer leave for McLaren. I'm guessing the team was toxic for longer than it was publicly noticeable.

Yes I agree. Red Bull, to me, has always had that image.

How do you go back to work in a team that has this guy as a leader? Or one that has a sexual predator for a team boss? Completely toxic.

No wonder Newey wants out.

Ita a measure of priorities that the council can't pay it's staff properly to organise the streets to be swept or rubbish to be collected but can hoard millions of pounds worth of art.
