CITY VIEWS: DOES THE GOVERNMENT APPRECIATE THE CONTRIBUTION THE CITY MAKES TO THE ECONOMY?

GETHIN JONES | RSA
“I think the government doesn’t appreciate the City, really, and neither do most of the voting UK public. I just don’t think the public realises how much tax revenue the City generates, or how much of the public those revenues help.”

“It may do because taxes in the highest brackets have gone up. The resentment across the UK may have something to do with the government’s response against the City, considering how unpopular it is outside of London.”

JONATHAN BRUNNING | MILLER INSURANCE
“It depends on the government’s mood. When everything is good, the government leaves the City alone. When everything is bad, it goes after the City. The government points the finger whenever it can. The City is an easy target.”
