    Pleased to say that a 24 year old 'wannabe tree surgeon' has been arrested this morning after the police found 'several chainsaws and wood chippings' in his car.

    With that evidence, he's got no chance. Probably missing a finger or thumb as well.

    AFL at it again

    In a team photo still up on Instagram on Monday evening, players Jack Redden, Alex Witherden and Jamaine Jones all made an upside-down three-finger OK gesture.

    .It seems almost certain that Sky News Australia will rebrand as Fox News in the coming months, if not weeks, according to multiple sources

    "Amazon’s revenues have soared under the pandemic while our high streets struggle, yet it continues to shift its profits to tax havens like Luxembourg to avoid paying its fair share of tax.

    It's got no profits, love, that's the point.

    This is why accountants are the truly evil people, but no one ever seems to get this.

    It's quite funny that some random woman from Stoke pays more tax than Amazon probably do globally.

    Amazon aren't paying that tax, the people doing the work they are being paid for are. Amazon may be paying them, but that's not the same.

    VAT's probably a better shout on the revenue collection front, but again, who is actually paying there?

    I find all this stuff hilarious.

    The tax system isn't fit to cope with these uber-corporations that don't seem to care as much about profits in the traditional sense, but no one is ever going to change that, because capitalism.

    America have been proposing a removal of low tax havens which could make a difference but the UK would never give up their sweet sweet offshore locations.

    And the US wouldn't give up Delaware or any of their Caribbean island strongholds, the Europeans Luxembourg and Lichtenstein, or Ireland. Everyone wants rid of 'tax havens', just not their tax havens, everyone else's tax havens. The existence of low tax regimes is not the problem as much as the ability to offshore your business away from its actual revenue base and or the byzantine tax systems which allow armies of accountants to effectively subvert public policy at all and every level in perpetuity, forever.

    How about 'kill all accountants'?

    I'd lose about 5 friends in the cull but it might be worth it.

    The Guardian paid no corporate tax in 2020, and when it sold Autotrader in 2008 it shifted the money to the Caymans in order to avoid paying any tax. But go off on how Amazon should've been taxed on "sales income"...

    The idea was to defend the interior/easy to invade bits against rapid invasion and mass French troops in the North for defence/counter-attack against another Schlieffen Plan wheeling around to Paris, which is essentially what happened, but they just got battered. The Italians attacked the fortifications in the south and got nothing out of them, and the Americans used a few in early-1945 against German counter-attacks and they chewed them to bits.

    They worked in the south because it was Italians attacking them. Then again the French didn't do themselves a lot of favours in the North by ignoring their own reconnaissance and citing their headquarters in a chateau without any radio (again). They could have built the thing a thousand miles long and the Wermacht would still have been in Paris by teezeit.
