I think I’ll relax my rule of no black on the Insta feed for this one 😜 Today I was invited along to No 10 Downing Street to feed into the Prime Minister’s special adviser my thoughts on the proposed ‘Amazon tax’. You may have seen me talk about this over the summer - the Chancellor is proposing an extra tax for online businesses, which I strongly disagree with. Yes absolutely the big guys like Amazon and Facebook need to pay their way, but don’t go after the little guys like us. This isn’t the answer to why the high street is struggling. We need to embrace a changing UK retail model, focus on supporting and reforming our high streets, not lump on another tax. Thank you so much to @e_nation
for the invite. I’ll post a blog with more details on what I fed in tonight and link to it in our stories. I fear it is coming in the budget next week, but I did my best!
P.S. I did also take a notebook along for the second picture with ‘Theresa’ on, but chickened out - I blame the policemen watching me 🤣 #mostsurrealdayever
