Guido Fawkes (Anonymous)SPES, the deity of hope & prosperity. Now, the newest, smallest & first ever build your own UK Political Party. Time for change in the UK, a revolution.

1) Stop the wealthy corporate and individual tax dodgers. It is easy, but the Tories, Labour and Lib Dems refuse because they and their backers dodge UK taxes too.

2) Bye bye unelected upper house (Lords) & monarch. The Queen / her progeny can be ceremonial heads of state / ambassadors & stand for election as president if they want.

3) Get rid of the class and present honours system. You are not inferior to others, nor others to you. The class system breeds nothing but bad attitude amongst us all.

4) Stop spending billions on elitist / wannabe empire projects. Put the money into the NHS, schools, universities, social care, leisure, emergency services, defence (but not aggression).

5) Abolish lower income taxes & TV licenses. Have a true luxury rate VAT. Tax money & job exports. Tax pollution. Double tax dodgers. Privatize Westminster, Whitehall & Royal Estates.

6) Reform the electoral system (a win win option does exist). Return fraudulently acquired own to rent properties to the housing market. Double the rates for empty residential property.

7) Incentivize businesses, especially those that export & contribute to tomorrow. Reform welfare, prisons, foreign policy. Make Britain Great again. or Create an Account

Rolls Royce lose £4.6bn

Rolls Royce lose £4.6bn
Forget the part about paying £671m in fines for involvement in bribery (corruption, paying people to buy your products - the realities of the "exciting" oportunities that await us to widen the wealth divide yet further, post-Brexit)

Rolls-Royce reports £4.6bn loss

It is the bit "it has written off £4.4bn from currency related contracts" that matters. You see, aerospace deals are done in USD dollars. And, thanks to voting for Brexit, the GBP is now worth a lot less USD. But isn't the weak GBP meant to help exports? Not when you are providing long term contracted technical support / services from the UK, as you have based your contracts on paying people / facilities outside the UK in USD, so you now have to pay more GBP to pay these people the agreed USD contract amount. Oops! Brexit has certainly tooled Rolls Royce, and this is just pre-Brexit; wait until what happens after Brexit itself. I would be very surprised if RR will survive. What a shining example of how the Tories are supporting our major companies. Don't believe a word of it; the Tory party simply want to stay in power; they are going to help no-one but themselves, you will see.

At least RR will be able to trade more corruptly once we leave the EU. Oh joy!
