    Currently, yes. However, i'm in the process of moving away as my own small business is taking off and I want to commit to making that work and creating jobs for people.
    Not trying to lecture. Just trying to figure you out. So what is the difference between you, a small entrepreneur, employing people and making money, and corporate scumbags, who employ people and make money for their investors, who happen to be people like you and I through our pension funds?

    This is the thing I don't understand. There is a hatred of banks and big business. Yet we bank with those banks, and are employed by those businesses and we shop at the supermarkets owned by them. Hatred for them is surely cutting off the hand that feeds us - in every walk of our lives?

    They lobby in groups to monopolise the markets and cripple small and medium sized businesses. I dislike them because they seek to make the markets less fair and in the process of doing so also get massive tax subsidies/reliefs. On top of that, many of them are paying very little tax in comparison to what they should be paying. If these companies paid their fair share we'd have far more money to invest in the very things that has caused this revolt in the first place.
