CHARTERPELAGO !!! by Simon Sweetman

Share this content

Simon Sweetman has been looking at HMRC's work to engage young people - who are the taxpayers of the future - in the design of the new HMRC Charter. He is not impressed. Perhaps members have alternative ideas on how to go about this?

Young people are being encouraged to get involved with the creation of HMRCs new Charter, with a special internet site launched yesterday. You can find it here. HMRC says

"As part of the consultation process, HMRC has launched a new youth engagement section on the Charter online consultation site.

An interactive game called Charterpelago will allow people to read statements from the draft Charter, select their favourite parts and rank them in order of preference.

Word association
I must say the first thing that came into my head when I saw Simon's article title was Gulag Archipelago - I imagined that there must be some more extreme form of punishment awaiting errant taxpayers ...

I believe the correct "young people" response would be: WTF?

What waste of money
Surely HM Government should be tightening its belt and stop throwing away money.

It really is quite bizarre
or naive
or stupid
or ill judged
or box ticking

I shared my views about this in an uncharacteristic 'angry old man' post on my Tax Buzz blog last week
