  1. I read recently that HM Government is employing debt collectors to harass people who have been overpaid tax credits in error. Fair enough you might say- it is taxpayer money after all. But compare and contrast to this farce; It gets better; http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/apr/28/britain-plutocrats-landed-gentry-shotgun-owners So the same Government that exhibits an iron inflexibility in it's dealings with poor people who have got into financial difficulty due to it's own failure to get the tax credit system right shows a remarkable flexibility in it's dealings with the leisure activities of the wealthy. Trivial? Yes- but indicative of the subtle corrosion that wealth introduces into the principle of rule of law. If as a society we are going to persecute people whose only 'crime' was to spend money they believed was theirs to spend-on the basis that 'rules are rules' and have to be obeyed then how do we justify the farcical situation in which that same society subsidises the hobbies of the most wealthy while allowing them play fast and loose with the laws that apply to their activities?
