Too many local politicians are business bashing in South Lakes.
Businessmen and women are always telling me of the feeling they get that Local Authorities and Politicians are working against business instead of with business, blocking or hindering them at every turn.
Recently I had a motion calling for a simplified tax system and asking the Government to look into the feasibility of target VAT cuts to boost growth for South Lakes. In the end SLDC amended the motion and called for more taxes on the “rich”.
We need to stand up for those striving for a better community and life by building a business. Which is why I will be blogging a local business every month under the banner of Ben’s Business of the month. If I don’t stand up for business in South Lakes, who will?
