‘The tax gap is really the tip of the iceberg in the gap between the money that you collect and the money if everyone paid their fair share,’ the public accounts committee chairman said.

She said: ‘It looks to me that you should be litigating. Why have you not chosen to litigate and test your powers?
‘Why have you not litigated against one single internet company?’
She added: ‘Make a few cases, a few show cases. It’s so bloody obvious.’
Did we really have a former Minister, the current Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, saying that we should have a few show trials?

Can’t we go back to 1945 and start hanging a few fascists?
