Yes it does, in that he's got it wrong as to who's 'raping' this country money wise.

The people who are doing that are the likes of Philip Green/Amazon/Google/Starbucks who contribute sod all tax wise to this country because they can afford to employ people who can wangle huge tax breaks for them.

And the law allows it, just as it allows rich men like Ray Winstone to go bankrupt twice (see above) because he couldn't be ar*ed to do the paperwork.
Right, so all you are doing is proving him to be fairly clueless about the whys and the wherefores. He was not discussing tax loopholes. He was commenting on and moaning about paying high taxes and seeing no returns.

Not sure what is so difficult to understand about that, really.
Now, while the non-taxation of companies is a huge issue, but not directly connected to what he was talking about.

The government are ripping us off. This is occurring personally through primary and secondary taxation, through not enforcing taxation on rich companies and through not using our taxes to pay for services we need, and believe we are paying for. And to cap it all, sometimes they let people declare themselves bankrupt rather than pay their bills.

In general terms, Winstone is right, the tax system is both a mess and unfair. None of which improves his accent in H8.
