Ian Austin has become the ninth MP to quit Labour this week, blaming leader Jeremy Corbyn for "creating a culture of extremism and intolerance".


The Liberal Democrats will be rubbing their hands in anticipation.

The surprising journey your money takes after buying a pair of Nikes

Extensive efforts by Nike to shift profits from high-tax countries to no-tax countries and minimise its tax bill internationally have been exposed.

An investigation by Four Corners has revealed intricate workings of the world’s largest sportswear retailer’s tax manoeuvring, based on 13.4 million documents revealed in the Paradise Papers leak.

The investigation, in conjunction with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists from documents obtained by German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung, shows Nike’s Australian arm is owned by — and pays large amounts of money to — Nike companies housed in the low-tax destination of the Netherlands.

The company’s own filings show that Nike has only paid tax of 1.4 per cent on accumulated global offshore profits of $US12.2 billion.

But how do they do it?

If he cannot convince his fellow MPs to stand by him, how will he convince the country to do so? Both main parties are in turmoil, with Brexit dominating the implosions.

The one who can settle their internal differences (If possible) will be the victor.

And the ripples of that stone? 1983, Labour led by Michael Foot ( left wing) . It gave the Conservative Party/ Margaret Thatcher the most decisive election victory since that of the Labour Party post WW2.


And the SDP ( Gang of four)–Liberal Alliance got 7,780,949 votes, just slightly behind Labours 8,456,934.
