Re: @DavCrav - Can someone answer this question?
"So there already *is* what you want?
So what exactly do you want him to say he's going to do which is different???"
Country-by-country reporting is not an international agreement to close loopholes and amend treaties. In other words, Mr Corbyn has said nothing more than "I'll give it a go" as to *how* he's going to collect £100bn or more from corporations, most of which I would guess don't want to give him that money. It's rather like saying "I will catch more criminals if elected to office". How?
As far as I can tell, My Corbyn is exactly like anyone else on the Left, which is to say, all talk no trousers. When it comes down to it, there's never any detail as to how exactly all this will come about. It's just like the Greens, with their manifesto pledge to outlaw lending not done by the government.
Edit: And another thing, while I'm on my soapbox. You are the one who brought up country-by-country reporting, as something he suggested, not me. I pointed out that it's already done. In this case, Mr Corbyn needs to do something *different* to what is already being done. As a member of the electorate, it is not up to me to make suggestions as to what he will do, but up to me to decide whether his policies are sound.
The only explicit, cogent policies of his I have heard are: renationalize the railways, which might make sense, but he's hardly the only one saying it, and buy up the energy sector, to solve his perceived problem of high energy prices (energy prices in the UK are about average in the EU). It is not quite clear how, with energy companies' profits per household being about £40, spending £120bn or more renationalizing it would be of any use at all. And let's not forget People's QE, the inflationary debt cancellation mechanism that throws the BoE's independence under a bus so that the Government can make ill-advised investments with the money.
Edit 2: One last thing. I couldn't help but notice this: "The introduction of a proper anti-avoidance rule into UK tax law." as a Corbyn policy. That's idle talk unless he can miraculously write the perfect tax law. Note: no other country has managed it yet.
