EastMids post was one of the most ill informed I've read on this topic for a very long time. He seems to have woken up in the late 1970s. I have only just caught up on this thread and he already...

Trash, it isn't. If you are on PAYE the tax is allocated to wherever your company reports from. The location of your tax office has no bearing on the matter. I have worked for companies in Watford...

The IFS may say that with regard to corporation tax and HMRC may try to approximate the value of the tax generated in the regions but, if they do, it is only a guesstimate and, as we know, they have...

Turtle Controller, I'm sorry if you have been bored by my little history lesson. You may be well aware of the facts, or maybe you couldn't care less. Either way there's no need to be so snotty.

It depends how the figures are calculated. If all cargo that passes through the airport is counted, the answer is no. If the amount of freight that flies in and out is counted, then there is a...

Air Anglia was formed in 1970. I am certainly not saying Manchester Airport has been squeaky clean but it is a matter of record going back to the early 1950s that it faced obstacles at almost every...

Skipness, that line about protecting British jobs is total rubbish. What about the jobs at MAN which were affected when SABENA and Aer Lingus reduced their services.
