Honesty is the missing ingredient

October 24, 2013

I don’t really have much time for Russell Brand. I’ve never been that keen on vanity. But here he pinpoints the problem with politics (and indeed business) and why nothing changes for the better.
It would be nice to have a more complete road map to the alternative but the increased taxation of corporations and the wealthiest is clearly achievable (damn, it would mean voting).
Incidentally, the standard response to this is that it would drive companies away from the UK. I’d argue that it’s precisely those kind of companies we don’t want. Meanwhile companies that value people, the environment and social justice might just like being in the UK.
Revolution anyone?
