Whilst the real economy is collapsing the BOE is silent on trade deficits and fraud is rife. Mind you these are ONS stats.

Suspected VAT "missing trader" fraud activity rose 50% in the first quarter of the year, the Office for National Statistics reported on Wednesday. The quantity of fraud is now more than five times higher than a year ago, and the ONS said it was distorting UK trade figures.

You can understand people using tax avoidance as the money they pay just vanishes down a black hole and none off us get a say on how it is spend, who’s money is it anyway.

People can not pay taxes at current levels and still afford to save privately for a pension so more and more people are going to be sailing close to the wind when it comes to taxes or V.A.T

True, but not as expensive as the collapse of the London oil bourse, and there’s huge opportunities to steal the oil and steal taxpayers money providing services to the military. Tonys mates are filling their boots.

Isn’t there also an issue of corporate tax avoidance? I have heard, sorry no link, that corporate tax as a proportion of the tax take has fallen from about 45% in 1955 to around 5% today.
