HMRC wants power to break speed limits
HMRC has been employing some tactics to tackle tax avoidance and other issues lately, but this struck me as somewhat unusual.
It has applied to be one of the services allowed to break the legal speed limit, BBC reported today.
It said it wants this for use in covert surveillance of organised crime and would be among services such as the police, ambulance services and fire departments.
Do you think HMRC should be allowed to do this, or if it's at all necessary or would make a difference?
