What about companies that are not profitable? Company profit levels vary from losses to very profitable but everyone is assuming that all public quoted companies are immensely profitable. They aren't.
Not every company gets a bail out when needed, only when the country and worldwide effects of their collapse is greater than the personal loss does the government step in.
Look at all the companies that have gone bust without government intervention. Philip Green's empire, Debenhams, all those small energy companies, and many more.
But M0nica that doesn't answer the question; I specifically asked about companies that do make huge profits.
I don't actually mind that some businesses are helped out by the government, but why, if they do become profitable again, is there no mechanism for repaying the bailout costs?
And again, why don't we ever hear the same disparaging terms about these business scroungers that cost the country billions upon billions of pounds, but we do hear of individuals who collectively cost the country far less? The question needs to be asked: Is someone controlling the narrative to keep eyes on the poor, so we don't look at where the big money is being siphoned off to?
