Job Killing Jim

Brexiteer turned Britain fleeing tycoon Sir Jim Ratcliffe should be stripped of his title suggests Matthew Steeples

 

“Britain’s richest man” Sir Jim Ratcliffe is often described as a “prominent Brexiteer.” Now, given news of his relocation to the “Sunny Place for Shady People” that is Monaco, he should instead be remembered as a man who is, as Meg Hillier MP remarked, “sticking two fingers up” to the very country that honoured him.

 

Just as Porsche announced they are forcing customers to commit to a 10% surcharge if there is a no-deal Brexit and the airline flybmi files for bankruptcy citing “insurmountable uncertainty” caused by the Brexit process, that Sir Jim has decided to flee the very shores where he got pig rich is an utter disgrace.

 

As part of his plan to avoid up to £4 billion in tax, Sir Jim – who is also an advocate of fracking – just like fellow Brexiteer Sir James Dyson, has shown that he has no commitment to the United Kingdom. He should, thus, be stripped of his knighthood.

  1. Well he will be the first of many. Also, while were on the subject of Tax.
    Tony Blair seems to be doing everything in his power not to pay his fair share.
    14 Million turnover, with 13 Million written off as expenses, then only pays 300 Thousand tax, Pleeeese.

  2. He did not ‘get rich’ in the UK. He built a global chemicals empire from nothing and created 22,000 jobs. Why stay in a country paying massive amounts of tax to a government that just fritters it away?
    Matthew: let me give just a few, off the top of my head examples…
    1. HS2: £80 billion
    2. NHS fraud: £2 bn
    3. Police and Crime commissioners: £1bn
    and here in London the Garden Bridge: £50m.
    He doesn’t like the EU because he knows it a rapacious, spendthrift brute which is probably why you don’t like Ratcliffe.
