It is, but the anger at tax avoidence on this scale has appalled all the posters on here and that is a first. Which means we are all decendants of [not] norman ruling elite or their capiatalist copy cat businessmen.
We are the agrieved.

Let's not wasted time on mispelled words, it halts communication, you all understood the meaning even if the spelling was errant.
Today the HSBC bank has written an apology in the Sunday newspapers, this a is a modern phenmonan (who cares if the spelling is right)-it is now custom to do as you please outside the understood laws of the land and then act contrite in an official manner, thus absolving your wrong doing. If you are from the lower ordres, you will just go to prison and that is that, even if you do apologise in court.

Good point well made bastian. In truth the battle was never won . The most brilliant political stroke was played by Mrs. T - buying working class votes with the RTB scheme .

I am looking forward to an article in the Sussex Express showing Norman Baker proudly unveiling his new 'no tax avoidance' signs to be erected in key positions between the 'no verge parking', and 'this way to Victoria Hospital' signs. Problem solved.

No, we never actually won that battle because the rich right the rules for the rich. But there was a period between, say, 1945 and 1979 when they were a bit nervous of us. No longer.

Labour did eff all for 17 years, so a bit rich for Balls et al to suddenly say they would do something, especially since the HSBC stuff happened during their watch. This government has done a bit but much more could have and should be done. However the tax system needs to be thoroughly re-examined and simplified to reduce the industry that makes money out of advising on avoiding tax, that allows immoral avoidance to be acceptable (Mr Carr etc.).

I was trying to explain that it all needs sorting out irrespective of parties. Not much happened in decades and that is the problem. ALL parties are responsible. I am just effed with all of it.
