Microsoft in Japan trialled a 4 day work week and their sales increased by 40 percent.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This aint Japan, and nothing is free, including broadband. Someone has to pay for it, its not thin air.

You earn more, you keep more. You earned it, fkin keep it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Not according to the parasites. If you earn more, someone else deserves it more than you.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This dosent make sense. Labour are proposing small increase in tax to help fund free child care, broadband and NHS.

Everyone in the country benefits.

What’s the problem with this?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Any time a government intervenes to control a product or service, there will be an inevitable shortage/availability to the general public.

You’re already seeing shortages in the NHS. The broadband proposal will result in internet issues. Childcare? How? Providing a stipend to people with kids or will the government oversee child care services? What about staffing?

This is why privatization is always better option. It may not be perfect at times, but it’s always going to be better than government controlled.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you remember when Energy companies were privatised and how we were promised low bills? That never happened and if you think privatising the NHS is a solution as they are struggling I would point you to the underinvestment this Gov has deliberately made in the name of austerity. They've given tax breaks to the rich, created more billionaires than ever whilst our genuine disabled are literally dying due to benefit cuts. Privatise the NHS and we'll end up like USA making choices like staying alive but losing the family home.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Nobody loses their home because of medical expenses in the US. Medical staff in the US take an oath to care for anyone that needs it.

Also, when applying for loans or whatever to buy homes/cars, medical bills are not included in determining approvals.

However, I will always prefer a health care system where hospitals and insurance companies can gain profit to reinvest in R&D ventures and ensure that hospitals have the most up to date equipment and enough staff to meet the “demand”.

The alternative is a government bureaucrat making those decisions.

People who want a 4 day week are just lazy waankers.

Aka Labour supporters
----------------------------------------------------------------------

So you'd rather work 5 days a week?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I know I would rather not lose a portion of pay. You’re delusional if you think ANY company is willing to let an employee have an extra day off and still pay for that missing day...
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Why not? Increased productivity would pay for it.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
How’s this. Let’s say I own a business and you work for me. Let’s say you bring home a gross weekly amount of £2500. However, now that you get a four day work week, you will now be paid only £2000 a week.

Now let’s see how your productivity goes. I can guarantee, you will feel aggrieved because you’ve lost 20% of your pay now.

Unless Labour plans on forcing companies to pay that extra 20%.

As I stated earlier they tried it in Japan and sales increased by 40%. So, it’s obviously something to explore.

“ They would happily move away if he got into power. Then where exactly is the money coming from?”

Where are they going to move to? Corporation tax in this country is currently lower than France, Germany, China, even the fecking USA! And that’s forgetting a lot of it is being avoided/evaded by the big players. Almost 1 in 5 big corporations paid nothing in UK corporation tax in 2018.

It’s not that if we squeeze them a bit they will move abroad. It’s that they are totally taking the pizz out of us at the moment.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ireland, due to it's location, would be favourite but also Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Holland, Japan, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Canada to name a few.

And how did Germany (15%) and the US (21%) get in your list?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Your forgetting Germany has solidarity sub charge and trade tax on top of that. In total it’s closer to 30 percent.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

What he said. Also USA at 21% is higher than ours.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

At the moment yeah but we're not talking about now are we - we're talking about after Jeremy has offered the population free Haribo for life!

That’s utterly ridiculous. One extreme case doesn’t mean the system has failed.

The article claims they had insurance. What plan would that be? There are many options that people get through their employers - and depending on what you choose will determine the type of care granted.

Example: One plan may have a universal deductible of $1200 for a family, and once deductible is met for the year, then the insurance will pay at 80% until the bill the cap of $4000, then insurance pays 100%. The downside is that your insurance premium deduction would be higher than the other plans.

Whereas another plan would be a $10,000 deductible, but you have a small premium payment.

The article doesn’t mention any plans. Also, his son most likely went to a specialist - which would have been out of network with the insurance company. That information is presented right up front.

So there’s more to the story than what is being shared.

In that Case you’ve kind of just undone your own point. You said Ireland would be a good bet, but their already a good bet at 7% lower than us (or whatever the exact figure is) so why are they still here?

As I said earlier. Almost 1 in 5 big companies paid zero UK corporation tax last year. There is a fecking big money forest already operating here, it’s called Amazon.

Yeah and I just explained that there’s more to the story than what is being shared in that article.

The article is nothing but a propaganda piece so that you Brits can eat it up going “we have the best system in the world”...all while being put on a wait list when you need to see someone.

Face it. If the UK system is so perfect, then explain why thousands upon thousands of families flock to the US when they need specialized treatment?

----------------------------------------------------------------------
That’s utterly ridiculous. One extreme case doesn’t mean the system has failed.

The article claims they had insurance. What plan would that be? There are many options that people get through their employers - and depending on what you choose will determine the type of care granted.

Example: One plan may have a universal deductible of $1200 for a family, and once deductible is met for the year, then the insurance will pay at 80% until the bill the cap of $4000, then insurance pays 100%. The downside is that your insurance premium deduction would be higher than the other plans.

Whereas another plan would be a $10,000 deductible, but you have a small premium payment.

The article doesn’t mention any plans. Also, his son most likely went to a specialist - which would have been out of network with the insurance company. That information is presented right up front.

So there’s more to the story than what is being shared.

Half a million bankruptcies filed in USA in 2019 due to medical bills. Again, I would rather have NHS.

Cry me a river grated. Like you are the only one. Truth comes out that you want to work a 4 day week
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Why would you not want to work a 4 day week? Do you hate your wife or something?

Microsoft in Japan trialled a 4 day work week and their sales increased by 40 percent.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This aint Japan, and nothing is free, including broadband. Someone has to pay for it, its not thin air.

You earn more, you keep more. You earned it, fkin keep it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Not according to the parasites. If you earn more, someone else deserves it more than you.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This dosent make sense. Labour are proposing small increase in tax to help fund free child care, broadband and NHS.

Everyone in the country benefits.

What’s the problem with this?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Any time a government intervenes to control a product or service, there will be an inevitable shortage/availability to the general public.

You’re already seeing shortages in the NHS. The broadband proposal will result in internet issues. Childcare? How? Providing a stipend to people with kids or will the government oversee child care services? What about staffing?

This is why privatization is always better option. It may not be perfect at times, but it’s always going to be better than government controlled.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you remember when Energy companies were privatised and how we were promised low bills? That never happened and if you think privatising the NHS is a solution as they are struggling I would point you to the underinvestment this Gov has deliberately made in the name of austerity. They've given tax breaks to the rich, created more billionaires than ever whilst our genuine disabled are literally dying due to benefit cuts. Privatise the NHS and we'll end up like USA making choices like staying alive but losing the family home.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Nobody loses their home because of medical expenses in the US. Medical staff in the US take an oath to care for anyone that needs it.

Also, when applying for loans or whatever to buy homes/cars, medical bills are not included in determining approvals.

However, I will always prefer a health care system where hospitals and insurance companies can gain profit to reinvest in R&D ventures and ensure that hospitals have the most up to date equipment and enough staff to meet the “demand”.

The alternative is a government bureaucrat making those decisions.

Then good luck to you if you ever need immediate medical attention and there’s not enough staff or a cure to help you

Remember, most drug and medical advancements came out of the United States. You’re welcome.

For those thinking plans like "free broadband" are crazy, obviously it's not free - it's tax payer funded.

That's the simple part, some people don't like the idea of that, others do.

For those that don't, do you know who already pays for the majority of the network at the moment? It's tax payers, that's right we're already paying for it via openreach.

The profits are passed on to private business but in reality the system is currently deeply flawed. Another system of privitisng profits while tax payers pick up the losses.

Nationalising essential services like this is not radical, it's common sense.
