That NAO report into the UK Uncut tax cases.

It all looks rather fun really:

All five settlements were reasonable, and at least one may have been better than reasonable. We found that all five settlements were reasonable ones for the Department to have reached in the circumstances.

So that\’s the Uncutter\’s hopes dashed.

These large tax settlements are complex and there is no clear answer as to what represents the ‘right’ tax liability.

And that rather tells Ritchie to bugger off. For if even the letter of the law is unclear it\’s impossible for anyone to obey the spirit of it.

  1. “if even the letter of the law is unclear it’s impossible for anyone to obey the spirit of it”

    Nonsense. The spirit of tax law is determined, and applied, by the Sage of Norfolk.

  2. if even the letter of the law is unclear it’s impossible for anyone to obey the spirit of it

    That doesn’t follow. The difference between allowances the legislation means to support and unintentional loopholes can be quite clear, even if the legality of the loopholes is in doubt.
