Thought of the Day: How can I vote for a tax on tyranny?

WHO SETS THE BUSINESS RATES THAT CRIPPLE SMALL BUSINESSES? GOVERNMENT OR LOCAL COUNCIL? LET’S SPEND YEARS GOING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE TWO WHILST THEY POINT AT ONE ANOTHER AND NEITHER ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY.

WHO BUYS PROPERTIES AND SELLS THEM TO INVESTORS WHO THEN IN TURN LEAVE THEM EMPTY? LET’S SEE AS OUR CHILDREN GROW UP TO HAVE NOWHERE TO LIVE AND OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES WITHER TO NOTHING.

WHO SELLS PRODUCTS THAT UNDERCUT ALL LOCAL COMPETITORS AND THEN REFUSE TO PAY THEIR TAXES? AND WHO GOES INTO A LOCAL SHOP AND SAYS (LOUDLY): “OH, BUT IT’S SO MUCH CHEAPER ONLINE!?” (Is it a degree in economics you have?) LET’S SEE AS OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES DISAPPEAR. (By the way, who wants to bet on VC being turned into another estate agent?)

“[…] tyranny leaves the body free and directs its attack at the soul. The ruler no longer says: You must think as I do or die. He says: You are free not to think as I do; your life, your property, everything shall remain yours, but from this day on you are a stranger among us.” – Alexis de Tocqueville, De la Démocratie en Amérique, Vol. 2

    Notting Hill has nothing local anymore, it is a global community of wealthy people without a country. Move! Move the shop where real people live.

  2. Can’t believe you are closing, dear Video City people!! We have been your loyal customers for 30 years, and our son when he was a kid made a great pottery replica of your shop front which he thought was so cool (sadly I broke it: I should have given it to you). But hey- thank you so very much for giving such a wonderful service to us all, great range of movies, such knowledgeable staff-what shall we do now????
