Well, see I'm still wondering about that.
How does trading increase tax revenue? It's taxable already. IE - If I make £X/year from trading I pay £Y tax on it.
Traders donate to charities just as much if not more than anyone else.
Also if you have a pension or are invested in any funds who executes the transactions in those funds/pensions?
Why do so many poeple have it in for traders?
Not just here, people get quite upset about the idea of traders making good money from short term transactions. What's the difference between a forex trader, a used car trader, a real estate trader or even a recruitment agent?
They're all buying and selling stuff that they didn't make/build/develop
Even affiliate marketers - why does Google hate them so much?
