Zahawi affair crocodile tears

Oh the hypocrisy. Who has not paid cash in hand to a tradesman to get a discount? The entire tax system is designed for avoidance and evasion. Nobody undestands it. My cousin who was an accountant, had a whole library of books about the UK tax system. It filled view metres shelves, stacked from floor to ceiling.

The tax system is, in the main, nothing more than legalised robbery – a tariff of fines and penalties for honest wealth creation. It is a pity that commentators have not picked up this aspect of the affair. They have probably never come across us, but our Campaign has long promoted a form of tax which is very difficult to avoid or evade, and uniquely, does not punish wealth creation.
