Are Bankers Scared Of Corbyn? We Asked Them.Articles . Blog
Are you scared of a Labour government? Yes! We are two weeks out from a general election we’ve already had stories about the super-rich being ready to flee the country if Jeremy Corbyn comes to power. We thought we’d come to the city to ask people’s opinions on whether or not the richest should pay a little bit more tax under the next British government. Any thoughts about the general election sir? They’re all a bunch of bastards. So, we’re asking about the general election. Yeah it’s bollocks. Are you scared of a Labour government? Yes Are you scared of a Labour government? Yes Excuse me sir, we’re here to ask some questions about the general election. I wondered if you had any thoughts? Umm, just that I hope the Conservatives win. So if you think in this country you have got some public services which are in crisis, you know four million people waiting for operations six hundred thousand people on trolleys last year. How do you think the government should make the money to fund those services properly? You don’t think we’ve got public services that need investment? Well of course we do, but we don’t have the funds to renationalise all that they want to renationalise. Where’s it all coming from? Well there’d be lots of people who’d say that the people who are saying that a future Labour government couldn’t afford to invest in public services, and tax and nationalise things that they could afford to bail out the banks here, and that they haven’t paid the price for the damage they caused the economy. I think that’s right. There’s been a lot of very bad management within the banking system and within finance as a whole. Ok so what the Labour Party are saying is what they’ll do is increase taxes on the rich and they’ll spend those taxes on the rich on public services because they don’t think four million people waiting for operations is a good thing. Well of course four million people waiting… I don’t think four million people are waiting for operations as a matter of fact. 4.4 million are waiting for operations. Well maybe there’s a case for people who can afford it to pay for medical care up to a certain point. After all you have prescription charges. Well Labour are going to scrap them to be honest. They’re gonna scrap… they’re going to nationalise everything and they’re going to scrap. They’re going to do all these wonderful things and where’s the bloody money coming from? Well the bloody money is coming from taxing the rich, that’s what I said! Ohh will it. And what do you think that will do? Do you really think that taxing the rich to pay these billions and billions and billions is going to improve the economy? Yes Well, we don’t agree. Have a good day sir. You have a lovely day too. Excuse me sir, we’re asking about the general election. What do you want to know? Any thoughts on whether you’d like to see Jeremy Corbyn or Boris Johnson as prime minister? Definitely don’t want to see Corbyn. You don’t want to see Corbyn? Could you explain why? He’ll bankrupt us! O.K Can you expand a bit? Who are you thinking for prime minister? Jeremy Corbyn or Boris Johnson? Johnson Johnson, can you tell me why? Because there’s no alternative In Labour’s manifesto it says they’re gonna tax the rich more than they have
been taxed up to now. What do you think about that? To an extent I agree yeah. The rich should be taxed at least at the 40% mark. I know they get a lot
more but they get out of it through all the ducks and dives that they can do. There was a bit in the press the other day; some multi-billionaire paid about £37 in tax in a year. They need to cut down on that definitely. The PAYE people they’re being taxed left, right and centre Because they’re transparent. Their earnings are transparent, but the mega-rich aren’t. Why have we got tax havens? Why do we allow tax havens to exist? Large companies are allowed to strike up sweetheart deals with inland revenue you know? I’ve got a letter just behind me now From companies house saying you must send your accounts to us or you’ll get a fine and blah di blah
di blah and large companies? I mean everyone says ‘oh they employ lots of people’ and all that but The heads of the companies are amassing stupid amounts of money. You’re not endangering the Company by taxing them and making the people who own them give back a little bit more. Its a fallacy that you’re going to lose jobs if you raise taxes. You’re not worried that if Labour get into power they increase taxes on the richest and all of your customers, they flee to Monaco? Well I think we’ve tried the alternative for long enough now, we’ve been told about trickle down economics haven’t we for the last forty years? Margaret Thatcher said trickle down is going to make us all richer. It hasn’t happened. We’re still waiting to see evidence of that. There are people who are in work, in poverty. Food banks springing up. I can’t conceive of, when I was growing up foodbanks in this country. There’s enough wealth in this country it’s just not being distributed properly you know? Excuse me sir. Any thoughts on the general election coming up? Yes indeed. Hopefully the Tories don’t win will be my first principle behind it. What industry do you work in? Financial services Financial services, and how would you feel about a Labour government in this election? I’m pro it. I think they have a potential to re-energise this country to be honest. And would you be paying more tax under a Labour government? Yes I would be. And so does that put you at odds with many of your work mates? No, no funnily enough. I would say most people are prepared to pay a little bit more for better services to fix the issues We’ve got with the current government. 10 years of austerity and particularly Boris Johnson. And what do you say about the people who say ‘if Corbyn comes to power there’ll be a run on the pound there’ll be economic catastrophe? Well it’s not exactly the best times at the moment. The pound is not exactly riding high If the pound was high at the moment you could say legitimately that there might be a run on the pound. But, Let’s be honest it’s almost one to one against the euro, down against the dollar. What difference is Jeremy Corbyn going to make to overarching parts of policy? So have I found a banker for Corbyn then? Yes most definitely.
