Minitrue is here ....
Now there is a blast from the past, got to be almost 20 years since I last used that!
How would he and his wife pay just 10% on a dividend of 1M each?
Dividends are paid from profit by the Ltd, so 20% Corporation Tax will have been paid before it can be a distributed as a dividend.
When the dividend is paid out, there is a 5K allowance, but after that a 7.5% dividend tax rate applies to the rest, and any amount above about 40K (presuming they have no salary at all) will still be hit for higher rate income tax as well.
Unless you know otherwise? (In which case please explain.)
Not sure I'm seeing the problem the same way as others here :-(
It's certainly not (imo) rigging an election, that's done by fiddling with ballots, prevent certain groups from voting, or directly threatening groups to vote a specific way 'or else'
This is targeted advertising, finding a group of people who are likely to be susceptible to a certain message and then giving them that message.
This method is available to every political party and leaning, so all can use it to deliver their message to the groups they think will appreciate it most.
The article infers that it's a cheap way to get a message across, so in fact you could argue that it levels the playing field, it's not just the player with the most advertising pounds that wins any more.
Whatever your personal feelings on both the Trump and Brexit result, surely the smaller parties having access to spread their message as readily as a larger well funded party is a good thing?
The problem I have with your argument is that in all the examples you give a tool is being mis-used to do someone harm, and also it needs a much closer and physical approach to achieve that harm, which then entails the risk of losing a physical fight.
A Gun is the only object in your list that is expressly designed to do another person harm whilst still staying at a safe distance yourself, thus making it a lot easier to harm someone else without entailing any personal risk.
If someone had to use one of the alternative methods you list, then a lot of potentials killers would think twice and back off.
That's the real problem with guns, it makes it too easy for a coward to intimidate or kill someone that they won't take on face to face.
Same here, have an upvote ;-)
You forgot your troll icon !
For a very neat reason :-)
The XBMC remote has the facility to put received text messages up as a banner on the XBMC device that your mobile is remotely controlling ..... couldn't do that if it was unable to read them first on the phone.
Salt water should not be a problem.
You don't pump the sea-water directly through the weapon, you would use some other liquid that transfers heat well and doesn't cause corrosion, and pump that through a nice big heat sink, say the hull ?
Not a chance of that happening!
It's far too sensible, and can't be swayed / abused, since it would be linked to a measurable, verifiable quantity.
No-one in government or the climate business is going to want something that transparent.
Having one rendering engine does have advantages though, at the moment as a web dev you end up writing a page that has to try it's best to play happily with several different engines, removing that complexity would make web development faster / cheaper.
But none of this extra funding gained by hiking the energy cost is going towards Nuclear :-( In this country at least.
No, not a robot in disguise!
Asus, with detachable keyboard, a tablet when you want it, a laptop when you want a keyboard, and with the keyboard, excellent battery life.
