    You are mistaken.

    In fact, the government of the United Kingdom has recently been reducing the loophole by reducing the amount of dividends you can take before paying tax on them

    The £5,000 tax-free dividend allowance which the government introduced in 2016 was blatantly unfair and gave preferential treatment to the rich.

    For example, a person owning £200,000 worth of shares in a company with a dividend yield of 2.5% would pay no tax on the income. Even a company with a yield of 4% could own £125,000 and pay no tax on his dividends.

    This wealthy person also has a tax-free allowance of (currently) £12,000 a year on profits made by selling some of his shares after the price has risen.

    This is on top of the personal allowance. No National Insurance is charged on Dividend income, no matter how wealthy you are.

    These benefits are not restricted to people who are performing a public service or adding to the quality and morality of our nation.

    There is no such generosity to the poor or disabled.

    Tax cuts for the rich are as necessary as free doughnuts for the obese.

    So what are you saying - people shouldn't have shares in companies unless the 'poor' can have them as well? I know someone who you would probably call 'rich'. She had over £50,000 in RBS shares. They were practically worthless last time she checked. Being a shareholder is no guarantee of future profits.

    JohnD. Define 'Rich'. Care to share your circumstances with us? Are you employed, self employed, unemployed, company director, getting a private pension, state pension, own your own house/car?

    You are hallucinating again.

    Go and try to find anywhere I have said that.

    Are you on glue?

    Why don't you explain why you are hallucinating and making up things that I didn't say?

    If it's not glue, is it nitrous oxide?

    Okay, I get it. You are avoiding answering because you know you'll be caught out as you're being two-faced and hypocritical again just like you were the other day when you were slagging off major corporations - IBM/Apple/Google/Microsoft etc - but refused to answer the question of how you managed to post on here without using them. I didn't realistically expect you to answer anyway as, like others, I've long had the measure of you anyway. Sad bastard.

    Poor mottie cannot produce anything to show that my statements are incorrect.

    Perhaps he likes doughnuts.

    poor mottie is tired after all those doughnuts.

    It would be difficult for him to think of an excuse for accusing me of something I didn't say.

    Perhaps while he is asleep he will have another dream.

    I dreamt that I bought a loaf of bread named after you. When I woke up and looked in my bread bin I found I was mistaken. It said 'Thick cut'.

    Personally, I always used to say that I would accept cash & give a discount but any work done would not be guaranteed for obvious reasons, seemed to change their point of view pretty quickly.
