No tax avoidance is morally justified unless sponsored by government (like ISAs). Doesn’t matter if you’re one of them or one of us.

All tax avoidance is morally justified. Moral blackmail of citizens acting within the law is morally unjustified.

Some men think with their brains.
Some with their hearts.
Some with their dicks.


You are surely a man with a brain dear Tomorton. My respects to you sir

Dear Timy Tim Tim!

What you need to think about is where the rule of law and Parliament has gone in the UK when advisory politically induced referendums and words spoken by an unstable, not very competent and most unpopular PM becomes some kind of defacto Law.


I have contempt for people who haven't a clue and are so easilly led by lies and deceit.


Thought Gordon Brown put it really well with his four red lines and how each one has been a non-delivery, no-show hot air and much gaseous matter produced by the likes of Tories and UKIP. Empty promises like empty vessels. Throw them against a hard floor and everyone will be aghast at discovering "they were empty all along as promises shatter into fragments of what they meant and not what they promised"!

No sh1t Sherlock!

Interesting how the more indefensible the Brexiters' position becomes, the snarkier they get.

Yes, very much so.

You know like if the lie about £350m being redirected to the NHS wasn't enough, it's now £1bn a week. They can really say anything they like as there is a big appetite for BS in the Brexit crowd. Who freaking needs experts when we have clowns and the daily trash.

When one is soooo much in the sh1t up to their eyeballs what is there to do but top up with the £1bn per week cost of EU BS. ABSoooluuutely hilarious!

First SignalCalc and now CV, hoisting links up as if arguments support their position only to realise --- ooopppsy indeed.

Knowing what’s right doesn’t necessarily make you do what’s right. Bit like cutting a trade really
