Thats mighty nice of them. I wonder if this could cause British firms to be taxed? It seems to me, that any ass hat 🎩 dictator in the world, could figure he could get Americans to pay for his own 3rd world countrys infrastructure, by taxing American companies. I am not a fan of Silicon Valley big tech firms, by any means, but is this a valid point? I dont know enough about it to know for sure. Maybe other Freepers know more about this than I do. 😁
British companies will see the cost of their internet service explode.
It is the socialist way.
I rarely post here but in response to your question I think this would qualify as a tariff. As such it would challenge any trade agreements we have.
Such an action should result in a retaliatory tariff against the participating UK members in a sane world.
Any country can tax any company on earnings made in that country, it can’t really tax a foreign company on earnings made in other countries though.
That said, Corbyn can come up with any fantasy nonsense he wants, he isn’t going to win this election. He is the most hated and unpopular Labour leader ever. The British working classes are finally turning their backs on Labour having finally realised that they are more interested in representing bourgouis liberals from the metropolis and their favourite ‘victim’ groups from gays to various ethnic minorities (except for jews).
