Here’s this sunny Sunday’s info-dump – and This Writer hopes it doesn’t cast a cloud over your mood.
Rishi Sunak won’t give public money to UK schools but with his wife has given $2.4 million to a wealthy US college
Sunak and his tax avoiding wife gave £2.4m to a wealthy American college.
She chose non-dom status to avoid paying £20m in tax since he became an MP, while a local constituency school can't afford computers for the kids.
Sunak you really are…… 😡 https://t.co/JBwcSadck9

USA lover Sunak refused educational recovery tsar Kevan Collins’ request “for £15bn in pandemic catch-up funding for children. Sunak would only fork out £1.4bn, which isn’t even twice what he spent buying people free burgers with “eat out to help out”. https://t.co/t51ByqySOX https://t.co/hefx4QJAcM

There will be more on ‘Eat Out to Die Out’ in another Vox Political article later today (June 4, 2023).
Is pre-election tax cut plan the reason for Rishi Sunak’s current war on sickness and disability benefits?
Here comes the bribe:
Sunak wants 2p tax cut before next election.
Won't do anything for 21m adults on income of less than £12,570.
Won't change regressive policies – capital gains, dividends taxed at lower rates than wages.
Tax the rich. Redistribute.https://t.co/DLEBBctpLK

Tory MP begs Rishi Sunak to quit the European Convention on Human Rights – confusing it with the EU
For information: Andrea Jenkyns is a Tory MP who is currently deputy chairwoman of the Brexiteer European Research Group (ERG). Her claim that other Tories got the leader they wanted in Rishi Sunak suggests a developing schism among Tory MPs that could split the party as it grows – and let’s hope it does.
She certainly seems to be trying to undermine Sunak, with a letter that confuses the European Convention on (and Court of) Human Rights with the European Union and European Court of Justice.
For information: UK citizens have never – at the time of writing – voted to relinquish their rights to a free and fair trial, democratic elections, freedom of association (that is, the right to meet anybody we want to), privacy, or any of the others that the Convention upholds.
Heaven help us. Now they are claiming millions have voted to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights!
It’s just complete boll****! Millions voted to leave the EU but the ECHR is an entirely SEPARATE entity and they know it! pic.twitter.com/YKdgRzPQlS

TWITTER catches Boris Johnson lying about the reason for London police station closures
It's time that Sadiq Khan ends the uncertainty and commits to retaining Uxbridge Police Station — it's purpose built, in the right location, and needs to stay open in the best interests of Uxbridge and the West London area. pic.twitter.com/dxompPa0EE

DWP and police target criminal gangs involved in benefit fraud. What about those involved in tax evasion?
I cannot remember tax avoiders being arrested on video by HMRC. https://t.co/ZyyLWRTzX2

The video has been released after the Daily Telegraph published an online calculator to show readers how much of their salaries is being used to pay social security benefits in what many have dubbed an act of Nazi-style hate crime.
The argument against these acts by the government, police and media is simple: tax evasion costs the UK far more than benefit fraud and error but is investigated by far fewer people and nobody (to This Writer’s knowledge) has ever been arrested in a video clip. Here are some facts:

Corporate profits have nearly doubled since 2019 while average wages are lower than in 2007. Why are the government, Bank of England and bosses blaming wage rises for inflation?
Profit margins at FTSE 350 companies 89% higher than in 2019.
Gross margins for big UK companies are highest for a decade
Workers' real average wage lower than in 2007.
Yet Govt, Bank of England & bosses blame wage rises for inflation.
It is class war.https://t.co/mHbUJ5ZGc2
