It’s time professional people changed their tune: their duty is to support tax systems – not undermine them.
Just to take an extreme example: the duty of a barrister when defending someone accused of tax offences is to go all Soviet on them? Yes, yes, you\’re right, my client is a horrible person who should be locked up forever because of his attempt to undermine the State?
There\’s no room at all for a professional\’s duty to defend us from the State and its tax system?
I\’ve said before that I think Ritchie\’s a Royalist and this is further proof.
