Let The Wind Fall

Global pandemics have happened before, yet all three parties failed to plan for one in government in the 10 years leading up to 2019.

By all means let the rebuilding of the National Health Service be funded, as some Conservative MPs are advocating, by a windfall tax on the technology giants that have made a killing out of Covid-19.

And let the care of refugees from Afghanistan be funded by a windfall tax on the arms companies, which have literally made a killing out of that war, making them its only winners apart from the Taliban.
