    Talking of things which passed unnoticed, the rich are definitely getting richer in the UK

    Are we still all in together these days? I'm not sure if we are any more in Mr's May strong and stable country - still with all of these "wealth creators" around now, I'm sure us plebs will be seeing big improvements in our lifestyles in the coming years.

    As long as they pay their tax in the UK - then that's great. THE PROBLEM I have is that many of them DONT. How many of them are overseas nationals with Non Dom status ? like 'Sir' Bob Geldof , how many like to live here but not pay anything towards the upkeep.

    What I would love to see is a law which means you pay taxes on all your transactions in this country, you dont do it via the Republic of Ireland, Luxembourg etc - the one good thing (perhaps) to come from Brexit - is that we can then make that happen. So Google, Starbucks, Apple, FaceBook, microsoft, Nestle, WHSMith and countless other large corporations will pay their taxes in the UK.

    It's all part of the illusion. Mrs May says she is going to stand up for the hard working people and everybody believes it. Rebember the "hug a hoodie" stunt?

    In Scotland, I believe, they have "guilty", "not guilty" and "not proven". Tory election funding criminal case falls into "not proven", but proven enough for the electoral commission to fine them due to wrongdoing.

    Roll back to 2015 and one of Ed Milliband's policies was specifically regarding non-dom status. I believe it was limited removing the ability to inherit non-dom status (how can you inherit non-dom status?!?!) but this was part of the economic argument which Tories ran down. To echo TOBW's point, are we still all in it together?

    You mean the YouTube video mentioned in this letter? Maybe Robert Peston knows about it, he's a journalist.

    So we have a letter written by an MP and a tweet sent by an ITV politics guru. Anything reported by the BBC or MSM?

    Changing subject, what if this latest cyber attack is the catalyst to internet freedoms being removed, and controls for our protection introduced.
