A PRO-BREXIT hedge fund manager Saavas Savouri has ridiculed the idea that Britain is stronger negotiating trade deals alongside the EU – questioning how Britain would benefit in talks with China if Croatia and Bulgaria were involved too.
This person – a Brexiteer – is also in favour of letting foreigners ”park their money” in empty UK property???? What’s his real game?
Facetious arguments with no substance or basis in fact. This sounds like someone wants to protect the market. Foreign buyers who park their cash in empty London property should be taxed at 100% of the property value and properties that stand empty for more than 6 months should be taxed at 200% of the value and after a year 500%. London has been a virtual tax haven for rich foreigners for too long. Property prices have rocketed partly due to the massive amount of money these people have pumped into London as a means of protecting their wealth. This is why every new residential building going up in London is priced out of reach of people earning normal salaries.
GW: Which is it Saavas? You on the side of UK population or the rich foreigners?
