Loan charge lies

How many can you spot here from Mel Stride?

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

I counted around half a dozen: https://hansard.parliament.uk/commons/2019-05-21/debates/A0EB47F0-397A-4...

Here's a particularly big whopper "HMRC has, over many, many years, pursued these ​various schemes through the courts, including the Supreme Court, and on each occasion, these schemes have been found not to work"

Are the details of the names of the 'loan charge six' available yet?

Fair dinkum. (And seeing it today I'm not sure even I get my previous joke.)

Also, I love this hypocritical PH quote from the link below:

"...and he is entitled to be protected from retrospective or retroactive legislation.."

....but talking about not agreeing with what you said before, much as I enjoyed the quote, I'm not sure it's hypocritical to change one's mind. I wonder how much I agree with from what I thought ten+ years ago.

You are lucky you can remember what you thought ten years ago, these days I sometimes struggle with yesterday and sometimes even the morning by the afternoon- I have now become a dab hand writing things down so that I do remember them, as long as I do not mislay the list.

10 years? By the time I get to the end of a question with more responses than 6 I have to go back and re-read the question to remind myself what was asked.
