MotoGP » Marc Marquez moving to Andorra?

Number76: Look at how governments squander and mismanage their citizens money! Big business and the rich/well connected get all the breaks while suckers who play by the rules take it in the...yeow! Even at 10mil per year that doesn't put MM in the truly elite category. 49% tax???? They'd get the one finger salute from me too as I crossed the border. The US will take 40% of your salary if you make over $400k per year. That's just Federal income tax. Not to mention state income tax, sales tax, property tax, capital gains tax, air transportation tax, liquor tax, cig tax, fishing and hunting licenses fees ....
Indeed, the cost of pointless wars has gone through the roof lately...

F1 » McLaren announcement set for Thursday

If this is, as we are told, contrary to Ron's decision, one hopes he will behave as professionally as his drivers have been while waiting the decision on their future. Unless he's chucked in towel already, in which case it doesn't matter. All we need now is for Martin Whitmarsh to appear like the ghost of christmas past. WHOOOOO!

MotoGP » Marc Marquez moving to Andorra?

mrfill: @PorkPie Hard to see what revenue could be attracted, bearing in mind there is no income tax and virtually no corporation tax.
That's the point. You take a very small amount of tax from people who would never otherwise live there, as opposed to almost no tax, due to the economic inactivity of these havens. So they get Marc's money. Never would they have had any of it. Yet Marc will pay more (30k euro) than your average resident. More widely, it provides economic development, as these super rich people, forced to live there for five months, spend money in the local economy. It is a niche strategy. IOM is a good example of this.
It is 90 days now, not 183. Also, the economic development of 30K€ is not a lot. And Andorra can hardly be accused of economic activity. It is bristling with tax dodging companies and individuals shying away from the civic responsibilities in their home lands.

MotoGP » Jack Miller ‘going to be great MotoGP rider’

shamarone: Q: "What I want to know is, was it Repsol or Dorna who asked Honda to pick up Jack" (ooh ooh ooh) A: Dorna. (click/click, "that was easy", s1 pushes the easy button)
lolz. Yeah, but sometimes I wonder how much control/influence Repsol has over Honda in GPs. & that is a 'repsol' bike MM rides, it's barely a Honda.
Well, if it is, it goes to show that Repsol (an oil company) are far better at producing a racing motorbike than Honda (a motorbike manufacturer with 50 years racing experience). Remind us all, how many parts of the bike are made by Repsol?

F1 » Thieves steal Red Bull F1 trophies

"The actions of these men mean it's likely that we will have to make our site less accessible in the future, which will be unfair on the hundreds of fans that travel to visit our factory each year to see our trophies and our F1 car." Why? The 'hundreds of fans' do not usually visit at 1.30 a.m. so there is no need to change the day time arrangements. It is the overnight accessibility that appears to have been a problem. I'm not sure its fair to the 'hundreds of fans' to display a lot of fake pots. No-one won any of them.
