Making Small business competitive and viable
A major objective of the elite politicians is to ensure that big business monopolies thrive at the expense of society in general but the primary objective is to lock out competition from small and growing firms.
Multinationals do this via transfer pricing evading tax, by relocating their business HQ of 2 people to e.g. Switzerland or Luxembourg and then not paying tax where all their billions are made, by lobbying and gaining government protection and subsidies, by creating arduous and complicated rules which can be used to stop competition entering that industry.
The net of this is laws are set to favor big business but on some occasions, like the living wage, which was meant to create a swing away from labor at the polls, this will do tremendous damage to small business.
The living wage is only payable by any company listed on any stock market globally or any unlisted company in a monopoly position, any tax evading company, any company owned by a hedge fund.
None of the staff working for these companies is eligible for any DSS subsidy.
Any company turning less than £500 000 per annum is not eligible to pay either the living or minimum wage. Staff working for those companies are free to accept or reject whatever wage they are offered, there will be no government control. Staff are eligible to receive a DSS subsidy.

- Each council will be required to total up all business turnover in their area according to their accounts and divide it by the business rates it receives. The result will be a rateable value for each £1000 of turnover per year. Rates will then be reset on a turnover basis and then be reviewed annually to reflect each companies turnover.
- Each council will be required to provide free parking for up to 1.5 hours in town centers. This will be done via the P&D ticketing process. Anyone staying beyond that time will be required to pay normal hourly parking rates.
