This is a normal post reasons
1. Valid bragging not false claims
2. Encourage those high earners that care about it to aim even higher when they realise they could do better.
3. What have they to be afraid of?
4. Recognition that their work is valuable and valued.
5. Total transparency, remove any suggestion that they are not declaring income.
6. Above to be tied into govt openly recognising various legal means of tax avoidance rather than suggesting its going on when it suits them.

I chose double the average to try and focus on those who should be celebrated, not villified. Plenty of those who earn less should be celebrated but they're far less likely to be villified.

1&2. These ideas are just daft. Rich people aren't earning their money just to place themselves on some arbitrary scoreboard.

3. Beggars, conmen, envious people with pitchforks, commercial competitors who might use the information to their advantage, etc... plenty of reasons to be concerned about others who would attempt to take that money away.

4. Why would they anyone want or need external validation of their salary?

5&6. The inland revenue already gets that information by law. Not disclosing that information is already a criminal offense.

Why should anyone be vilified if they're not actually doing anything wrong? What's this guy supposedly done to earn your vilification?

This is a normal post I'm not sure how you draw that inference,
since I said nothing about who gets to decide who gets paid what, or how much. There might be a case to be made for someone to make that decision, and that someone might even be me (gasp!) or you (gasp!); but there'd need to be a lot more argument to make the case, and I've not got that argument to hand. I don't know whether such an argument'd work, either, be that in principle or in practice.

My claim stopped short of that: it's that there is (again, arguably) a matter of public concern here. That said, I might push it a bit further and suggest there may be legitimate grounds for public criticism on the basis that pay like that is indicative of and contributory to systematic injustice. What normative heft that criticism would have is a further question.

As for the paying tax part: I'm not an employment or a tax lawyer, but I am under the impression one of the reasons for assigning bonuses rather than salaries is that there are tax advantages for the recipient. So on that basis, he's possibly paying less tax than he might be.
(, Sun 21 Oct 2018, 20:42, Reply)
This is a normal post Fair enough, I somewhat misinterpreted the point you were making.
I will agree there is some public concern... but that's already handled by the inland revenue who know the information and they apply taxes accordingly, as it should be. If there is inequality the correct procedure is for the government to identify it and legislate accordingly so that people are taxed appropriately; the wrong procedure is for members of the public to arbitrarily decide they don't like a guy so he needs to hand over loads of money.

In terms of personal income, bonuses are taxed exactly the same way as any other earnings. However I believe there is some small leeway in terms of when bonuses are awarded, meaning they can potentially be timed to reduce liabilities in one tax period in exchange for increasing them in a different one.

This is a normal post I think the private sector is not exempt from answering questions justifying a salary
Particularly as it does involve the general public who live in the homes that his company build. If I was getting a huge bonus at a large company the first thing that would come to mind is why am I worth this. So why couldn't he answer the question when it was posed? Had he never thought he should justify it? As the public face he should be better than that. Also, if I was the journalist's boss I would expect him to ask the question - if I hadn't actually told him to in the first place.

This is a normal post Actually, yes the private sector IS exempt from answering those questions.
There is nothing in law that compels anyone to answer such a question from a journalist. Also, he has no reason to justify it. The onus is on the nosy fuckers to justify why it's any of their business... any not one has done that yet.

By the way, do you ask people you've only just met how much they earn? No of course you don't because it's really fucking rude.
(, Sun 21 Oct 2018, 18:33, Reply)
This is a normal post It shouldn't be rude, though.
Asking what someone does for a living is an indirect way of asking the same thing and, if you freelance, you often have to justify your prices by breaking the work down.

It's a boring question, anyway. Always ask what they do for a hobby if you want the measure of a person.
(, Sun 21 Oct 2018, 19:05, Reply)
This is a normal post Yeah, but if you're freelancing for someone,
you're actually doing work for the person asking and it would be a bit difficult to earn anything without some level of discussion about money.

But that reporter (and people on b3ta) are not asking this guy to do work for them.

"It shouldn't be rude." Yeah but it *is* considered rude by most people.
And there are good reasons why. One of them is the same reason why lottery winners often remain anonymous, to avoid a constant stream of beggars. Or to avoid con men from identifying you as a target. Or to avoid the situation where groups of envious cunts whip themselves into a frenzy online about how evil you are.

This is a normal post There is an argument
for the proposal that they should simply not be allowed to do so. Public display of the remuneration and forcing them to validate it is part of that process.

When money is pulled from the collective pot and most of it is given to just a very few individuals, everyone who is not part of that group suffers.

As such, it is the business of everybody when select individuals are given such a huge share of the financial collective pot.

Currently, you can fit the people who own half the world's wealth onto a large bus, and that bus is getting smaller and smaller.

When people are starving and unable to simply live because of a lack of money, anyone defending that situation should be ashamed, not the people trying to stop it.

This is a normal post I agree with where you're coming from, but I think you've got it wrong on this one.
It's a publicly listed company so he does have a duty to answer for it publicly. Obviously to any shareholders directly but also to anyone who has paid into a pension fund that is a shareholder. It's clearly excessive, when the builders Carillion collapsed it cost the taxpayer £150 million, and many of their directors were being paid stupid money, not as stupid as this. But the idea that anyone on double the average wage should be publicly named is utterly batshit. Still, it would be interesting to see how many penpushers at the NHS and BBC are milking it.

I don't think that extends to "to anyone at any time".

I also don't think that extends to anyone who paid into a pension fund that is a shareholder, but only to the managers of those funds.

Carillion is a different case entirely, since they were horrifically mismanaged for years whilst simultaneously being paid such large sums, and the result was the tax payer eventually had to foot the bill. I believe that Persimmon has thrived under this guy's effective leadership.
