80531 Corbyn Mk III: Electric Boogaloo
I think it's time for a new Corbyn thread.

The previous thread (>>73072) is reaching critical mass. In combination with the original thread (>>64990) we've had over 4,700 posts on Dear Leader since August last year. That's a lot of shitposting. Keep up the good work, lads.

69249 100% Inheritance Tax
Some time ago I came up with the idea of abolishing or massively reducing most of the taxes collected by the government with the exception of one tax, inheritance tax, which I advocated being raised to 100% with no exemptions or minimum threshold. I posted the idea online (it might have been here) and was ridiculed.

Now I am back, having investigated the matter thoroughly and done a lot of number-crunching and I am here to make the case again. Although the primary motivation for my argument is a moral one, the numbers themselves actually do make sense and we would see a net gain to the tax revenue collected each year.

The plan is simple: Close all loopholes regarding inheritance tax, then raise it to 100% but allow people who jointly own a property to have first-refusal on purchasing it back from the government in the event of the other owner's death (providing they have the money or can get a mortgage). This would apply to any and all possessions including personal chattels meaning you will have to pay the government a few grand to keep your telly, furniture and the like if your wife dies.

Why is this a good idea?

1. It completely and permanently removes every single living person from the tax system forever, freeing them up to do what they please with 100% of the money they earn. Whether you think this is a good thing because you believe people should own the fruits of their own labour or you think it's a good thing because it incentivises people to earn money there is not really anywhere you can sit on the political spectrum and disagree with this.

2. It encourages wealthy individuals from all across the world to base themselves in Britain, creating employment opportunities and of course giving our treasury a shit ton of money when they die. Everybody dies and it's not the sort of thing you can really keep quiet so there's not really any way for people to evade it. If every billionaire on Earth moves significant assets here due to the fact that they don't have to pay any tax we will be drowning in money forever.

3. Morally there is no way to justify someone owning what they did not earn. As with point 1, wherever one sits on the political spectrum they at least pretend to agree with this. Even the die-hard supercapitalists who want to create a libertarian free-market utopia claim that their ideology is based upon wanting people to make their own way in the world and not "rely on others for hand-outs".

Just imagine the paradise we would live in. No income tax, no VAT, no looking over your shoulder to see if the taxman is watching you, but all without having to make even a single cut to any public service. Absolute heaven and it's achievable right now, today, here in Britain in 2016. Why isn't anyone making this happen?

So you want to take money YOU didn't earn then decide who the beneficiaries will be? ...kind of a step up from the tenuous immorality of inheritance.
100% tax!
So thats home and all things of value?

On the upside, it's the only tax you'd ever have to pay, given we could afford to abolish pretty much everything else, and you wouldn't have to worry about passing on the house because the high turnover means that property would be much more affordable.

This is the root reason first world countries need to bring back capital controls across the board.
Having a wealthy class capable of (a) strongly influencing how the world economy is run and (b) not tied to any particular country, capable of eloping with relative ease if things go all 1917 is a recipe for disaster.

We spy on the Russians. We spy on the Americans. We spy on everyone. There is clear evidence (via the Snowden leaks) that we spy on Americans on behalf of the NSA, to evade their laws on domestic surveillance.

Trump is undoubtedly correct that he was wiretapped; his only error is in believing that he is somehow special in this respect, that Obama ordered it or that it was targeted surveillance. He was caught in the same Five Eyes dragnet as everyone else on earth.

This. We know that NSA and GCHQ collected records on Merkel's personal and work phones. There's no way they're not doing the same for Russian officials in the US, who would not be protected by the limitations on surveillance of US citizens. In the case of Trump's team, they may not be allowed to blanket collect the data, but there are definitely no rules against them finding out who is behind a phone number that turns up as the other party in their foreign surveillance.

Of course, may be possible that he actually was tapped, and has been advised to drop it because the NSA can just lie in legal hearings with impunity as they've done before.

81441 We're Going to Get Brexit Harder Than We Ever Imagined
>Brexit: UK to leave single market, says Theresa May

>Theresa May has said the UK "cannot possibly" remain within the European single market, as staying in it would mean "not leaving the EU at all". But the prime minister promised to push for the "greatest possible" access to the single market following Brexit.

>She said: "This agreement should allow for the freest possible trade in goods and services between Britain and the EU's member states."It should give British companies the maximum possible freedom to trade with and operate within European markets and let European businesses do the same in Britain. But I want to be clear: what I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market. It would, to all intents and purposes mean not leaving the EU at all. That is why both sides in the referendum campaign made it clear that a vote to leave the EU would be a vote to leave the single market."

>She told the remaining 27 EU member states: "We will continue to be reliable partners, willing allies and close friends. We want to buy your goods, sell you ours, trade with you as freely as possible, and work with one another to make sure we are all safer, more secure and more prosperous through continued friendship." Mrs May, who backed Remain in the referendum, called for a "new and equal partnership" with the EU, "not partial membership of the European Union, associate membership of the European Union, or anything that leaves us half-in, half-out. We do not seek to adopt a model already enjoyed by other countries. We do not seek to hold on to bits of membership as we leave."

>After Mrs May's speech Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said: "Hard Brexit was never on the ballot paper. Ripping us out of the single market was not something proposed to the British people. This is a theft of democracy."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-38641208

Correct me if I'm wrong lads but I seem to remember some sort of Norway/Switzerland relationship was being pushed very hard by the Brexit campaign? Could this be the beginning of the end for Theresa if her government collapses on the leave vote?

Heli carriers are more useful than you'd think, what with Crowsnest and anti - sub capability. The real problem is that building carriers takes ages and the cost cutting SDSR that scrapped Ark Royal happened before IS existed and Russia was stirring up shit, not to mention the pressure of recession. Which has left us with a capability gap but thems the breaks and the new QE class tubs look pretty amazing, Wonder if the money could've been better spent getting Sodexo away from the slop jockeys mind.

Switzerland will hold a vote on whether to introduce a basic income for all adults, in a further sign of growing public activism over pay inequality since the financial crisis. A grassroots committee is calling for all adults in Switzerland to receive an unconditional income of 2,500 Swiss francs ($2,800) per month from the state, with the aim of providing a financial safety net for the population.

Under Swiss law, citizens can organize popular initiatives that allow the channeling of public anger into direct political action. The country usually holds several referenda a year. In March, Swiss voters backed some of the world's strictest controls on executive pay, forcing public companies to give shareholders a binding vote on compensation. A separate proposal to limit monthly executive pay to no more than what the company's lowest-paid staff earn in a year, the so-called 1:12 initiative, faces a popular vote on November 24.

http://www.businessinsider.com/behind-the-swiss-unconditional-income-iniative-2013-10

I'm not entirely sure what to make of these. I reckong that if they tried the 1:12 thing over here then the lowest paid members of staff in some large organisations would end up being made redundant and replaced with contractors.

Jobless people are being paid a guaranteed basic income of nearly £6,000 a year in a radical experiment in Finland.

The Scandinavian country became the first in Europe to trial such a scheme, with 2,000 unemployed receiving 560 Euros (£475) a month for two years from January 1.

The recipients are free to spend the money on anything they choose, do not need to prove they are looking for work and will still receive the basic income even if they do get a full- or part-time job.

Finnish government agency Kela, which is responsible for the country’s social benefits, hopes the scheme will encourage the recipients to seek employment, remove disincentives to work and reduce bureaucracy. But critics fear getting a guaranteed basic income could have the opposite effect by making some unemployed people ‘lazier’ and less inclined to look for a job.

The scheme is part of the measures by the centre-right government of Prime Minister Juha Sipila to tackle Finland’s joblessness problem.

The unemployment rate of Finland, a nation of 5.5 million, stood at 8.1 percent in November 2106 with some 213,000 people without a job, unchanged from the previous year.

Marjukka Turunen, head of Kela’s legal affairs unit, said: ‘At present, unemployed persons may not gain any additional income even if they find work because earnings reduce social benefits. For someone receiving a basic income, there are no repercussions if they work a few days or a couple of weeks. Incidental earnings do not reduce the basic income, so working and self-employment are worthwhile no matter what. This is the key idea behind the basic income.’

According to her, the basic income, which is paid in advance at the beginning of each month, also helps its recipients plan their finances and provides a sense of security. More and more people are working part-time or temporarily or are self-employed and coordinating social security systems with non-standard work is often challenging.

Is the alt-right really racist?

I have been along these political lines for 10+ years and I am British born Male (one side Black Jamaican the other side Black Zimbabweans who fled after losing Rhodesian Bush War).

Why does Wikipedia think I'm a self loathing race traitor representing white nationalism? Not one of the popular alt right speakers have ever supported nationalism, socialism, any form of government control.

I strongly feel the established political parties, divisive media organisations and tin hat time, the anti Christian secret societies are on some kind of crusade against people that want smaller government, manageable immigration and less corporate involvement in politics and are being scapegoated as some kind of Nazi party (which is exactly what we are against, big government socialism).

To illustrate what I'm talking about, Wikipedia says; The alt-right has no formal ideology, although various sources have stated that white nationalism is fundamental. It has also been associated with white supremacism. Islamophobia, antifeminism, homophobia, antisemitism, ethno-nationalism, right-wing populism, nativism, traditionalism, and the neoreactionary movement.

Is that just wikipedia fuckery?

I'm going to answer the only point that has any remote basis in reality. The white helmets are seen in the rebel areas because those are the areas getting the shit pounded out of them by Assad and the Russians. It may come as some surprise that he's not bombing the shit out of people who support him. In particular, they're going where nobody else is going. They're in those areas specifically because organisations like the actual national civil defence body (run by the government) and the Syrian Red Crescent are refusing to go in.

Is pic related the only half decent female leader the world has seen?

Look at the rest - Merkel, Dilma, Park Geun Hye, Hillary Clinton - and she seems at least competent in retrospect, whether you like her or not.

She's had a "thing" against Russia for quite some time. Some of her attacks verge on the xenophobic (My stomach can't handle I can't be bothered to trawl through her Twitter history, but I'm sure you could find them if you're interested).

Mensch is absolutely insufferable, and a nasty piece of work. If anything the US should consider our sending over of her, James Corden, Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan a first nuclear strike.

Sorry mate you're just a misogynist.

Who the fuck looks at Trump's Twitter feed and concludes 'we need to get the men out of politics'?

What's worse: that she knows she's chatting shit and just does it for attention, or she actually thinks WW3/the largest war in Europe since WW2 (at best) is a great idea?

Also Mensch isn't a politician anymore, just a pillock with a Twitter account, and she's far more a pillock than she is a woman.

She's one of those cases where in public she hates Russia to unnecessary levels; but in private it turns out it's to cover for the fact she has a huge fetish for being taken in the bum by huge Eastern Europeans.

Ukip leader Diane James has quit the role after just 18 days.

In a statement Ms James said: "It is with great regret that I announce that I will not be formalising my recent nomination to become the new leader of the party with the Electoral Commission.

Having won the enthusiastic support of party members, I was nominated by them as the new leader at the recent Ukip Bournemouth conference. Since that time I have been in discussion with party officers about the role. It has become clear that I do not have sufficient authority, nor the full support of all my MEP colleagues and party officers to implement changes I believe necessary and upon which I based my campaign.

For personal and professional reasons therefore, I will not take the election process further. I will continue to concentrate fully on my activities and responsibilities as a Member of the European Parliament."

Senior Ukip members reported that Ms James, who took over from Jimmy Saville last month, had resigned her position for personal and family reasons. One senior party member told The Telegraph that Ms James has felt uneasy about her new role ever since she was spat at on a train station platform after winning the leadership contest.

Yep, that guy is a looney.
They carefully chose that picture to not show everything he had to say though. Here's a more illuminating one.

Haha, your side lost remoaner cunts.

I think this guy is an obvious plant to make some of that fake news we've been hearing about.

Jimmy Saville has revealed how he is having a 'great time' since quitting as Ukip leader because he no longer has to deal with 'low-grade people' every day.

The 52-year-old said that leaving the role means he does not have to associate with people he would never choose to have a drink with or employ. He also added that he is relieved to not be responsible for what the party's 'branch secretary in Lower Slaughter said half-cut on Twitter last night'.

Mr Saville, in an interview with James Kirkup at the Daily Telegraph, said that people 'use him as a vehicle for their own self-promotion'.

'There are a lot of great people in Ukip. The problem is that Ukip has become a bit like the other parties: people view it as a means to get elected.'

The MEP also revealed he has ambitions to bring peace to the Middle East through his ties with US president-elect Donald Trump.

I think he doesn't care who he trolls; as long as he has attention.

80743 Italy referendum results
I think I have election fatigue.

I haven't a clue how Italian voting / counting works, any idea when we might know the result? Italy has perhaps the most unstable government in the EU, I have often wondered about that and its proximity to Greece and they're the both probably the oldest democracies. You would have thought they had it figured out by now...

What does that mean?

Can anyone please summaries what people are voting for, and what an election for either side entails.

Italians living abroad get to vote. "Regno Unito" = UK.
