Petition Only Residents and Domiciles should be allowed to own British media companies
In the USA there is a law that restricts the ownership of media to US citizens. Now the UK is leaving the EU we are free to do the same. Only people with a vested interest in this countries best interests should be allowed to control such powerful tools of public opinion.
All the major owners of the pro Brexit press are either non residents in the UK or claim non domicile tax status in order to mitigate their fair share of tax. It is time to put a stop to this in the same way as the EU was trying. Let's finish the job they started.
