So after the recent revelations of tax evasion by political party donors on both sides of the house, aided by HSBC, what will politicians and civil servants do?

They'll introduce a token tax on legitimate costs of selling one's labour of course, certain to raise precious little from people who have to shell out in order to do an honest day's work and keep the economy driving forward.  Rather than redressing the imbalance and permitting permanent employees to claim expenses for working as they should have done years ago.  If taxes on people weren't so high in relation to taxes on business - a disgrace - perhaps people would be more willing to become part of other people's businesses and become employees.

And all the while, the population remains silent.  You get the politicians you deserve I believe.

Perhaps HSBC should have made sure they were paying their bribes to the government in earnest and the whole story might have been hushed up.

This really is absolutely disgusting.  Buying votes from those already afforded a better than fair deal from the rest of society.
The young have to shoulder some of the blame for never bothering to vote.  But with cynical mealy mouthed politicians such as these, is it much wonder?

Pitchforks.

HMRC's solution to makin' mo' money:
1) Build a website that doesn't work.
2) Force people to pay to call you up.
3) Hold them in a queue for over 30 minutes.
4) Profit!
Why does my government remind me of some cheap and nasty little con artist?
Pitch forks.  Who's with me?

Believe we're further along the road to enlightenment than Russia and China?  Oh really?
