Last quote by Felicity Lawrence

Leaving the EU is a chance to reform the biggest sector of Britain’s economy. But is Michael Gove up to the job, or will he be hamstrung by free-market dogma?There is a rather large piece of unexploded ordnance in the middle of the Brexit talks, which kicked off last week. It lay buried through most of the referendum campaign – but if not skilfully defused, it could go off with devastating consequences for our food system.feedback

Felicity Lawrence has most recently been quoted in an article called Who will pay for the UK’s multi-billion corporate tax grab? We all will. Felicity Lawrence said, “Big businesses are exploiting a gap between UK and European law in an attempt to claw back up to £55bn. That’s money we need for hospitals, care and schools. Imagine you are presented with a brilliant new wheeze to reclaim your taxes from more than 40 years ago: taxes that have long ago been spent on services from the NHS to schools to welfare. Clever lawyers and accountants sell the idea to you; they spotted the opportunity at the turn of the millennium. But just like elaborate transnational tax avoidance, it only works if you are a large multinational business operating in different jurisdictions. What would you do? Balk at something that sounds so unfair? Ask: how is this possible? Or take up their invitation and ask who to call?”. Felicity Lawrence has been quoted a grand total of 2 times in 2 articles.
