Shareholders take the profits though not the community. I remember when my dad said the factory next door was moving all it's production to Hungary where labour was cheaper and they could produce the construction vehicles/equipment for less money. But he pointed out that the objects themselves never get reduced in price for the consumer only the profits go up and the shareholders split it between themselves with a much smaller amount going in tax to central gov. Lost jobs lost industry but happy shareholders isn't better for community the nhs etc etc.Yes me too and I know that when the Tories are in we have growth, excepting the war years and pandemics, my shares grow faster. When my shares grow, it indicates to me that the economy is doing alright. This isn't about loving or hating a party, it's knowing when you're better off.
Uk people should have some civic education at school like mainland European countries if you ask me which might create a nation that thinks properly that respects and likes each-other a bit more than I keep noticing these days.
