So much to like about this:
a. That the government stop the cuts
b. That all job cuts at H M Revenue & Customs be cancelled
c. That 20,000 new staff be recruited at H M Revenue & Customs to tackle the tax gap
That\’ll please Mr. Serwotka, won\’t it, the head of the PCS union, the union which represents those HMRC workers, and which pays for some/a lot of Ritchie\’s work?
Isn\’t there some folk wisdom thing about this? Peeps paying pipers and calling tunes?
1. That big business is not paying the tax expected of it
2. That big business is the only part of the economy expecting a tax cut over the next four years
3. That by 2014 big business will be paying tax at lower rates than any small business and any individual in the UK
Still failing to note the basic economics of taxation, ain\’t he? That companies don\’t in fact carry the burden of taxes?
