… a trend
In Great Britain, credit companies will be comparing the declared income on people’s tax return against the amounts they spend.
They will then identify — to the govt — “high and medium risks of both illegal and legal tax avoidance.”
Information will also be routinely shared between the British and American authorities.
just for knowing…
Ministers also wish to encourage more whistle-blowers [aka: stool pigeons, finks, informers] to come forward with details of offshore bank accounts.
The public accounts committee will accuse international firms of “insulting” ordinary Britons by funnelling profits off shore.
Real nice. “Insulting”. Mr. Marx to the white courtesy telephone, please.
They’re nattering away about the People’s “responsibility” to pay for the absurd excesses of Nanny-govt spending and the “unfairness” of people who don’t rush forward to give their last farthing to rescue the spending-addicted Progs in charge. Meanwhile, no one seems inclined to point out the excessive spending and hold the leaders accountable. Funny, that…
And absolutely No One seems to be able to grasp the idea that govt can produce nothing and removing Capital from the market decreases any chance that more can be produced. BTNIN. Pannikked Progs are stampeding.
Expect this trend to spread across The Pond. Soon. After all, We The People must pay for necessities like NASA “issuing grave warnings that 2012 Mayan apocalypse rumors pose a real-life threat to frightened children and depressive teenagers.” So, of course the govt must step in and fix all those who are too stupid to ignore such drivel. Or to take care of their children.
Astrobiologist David Morrison is deeply worried about children who “say they can’t eat, or are too worried to sleep” or may be suicidal.
Well, that seems to be a bit of overkill if a planet is coming to Kill Us All™. Like, yanno, NASA climate “sciiiienlist” James Hansen [whom we also pay for] whinging on about how we’re All Gonna Die™ from Global Worms…
