To Theresa May, Prime Minister, and James Dyson, Founder of Dyson:

Pro-Brexit hypocrite James Dyson has taken millions in British and European taxpayer subsidies – before moving his headquarters to Singapore.

He must pay every penny back.

 

More information

James Dyson received £2.8 million from the EU in 2017.[1] His company also received £16 million in backing from British taxpayers for electric cars – before announcing that they would be constructed in Singapore.[2]

James Dyson may be attracted by Singapore’s lower taxes for big businesses, and has previously called for the abolition of all corporation taxes.[3] But if he doesn’t want his companies to pay our taxes they shouldn’t be getting the benefits we provide.
