Your reply would have benfitted from an absence of pro-Brexit and pro-Boris blinkers.

Well done Philip Fisher. Although you say you know little about football, you have 'hit the back of the net' in my view. When I saw the crowds outside football grounds protesting against the European Super League I had one thought. They appeared to me to be same lot that were demanding unsuccessful club owners be defenestrated and losing clubs sold to multi billionaires who could buy the best players in the world, and pay them enough each week to fund a hospital.
Philip’s sharp financial brain enabled him to see that only regular competition between the best football clubs will raise the TV revenue to pay for the whole system. Presently the world audience is drifting away from football out of boredom.
Calm down you self-styled ‘true fans’ and ‘proud supporters’ and be careful what you wish for. No more money means no Real Madrid versus Manchester City, but unlimited Southend United versus Grimsby Town.

The tired old mantras 'tax rises encourage people to work less' and 'the country is spending more than it should' are both without any basis in economic theory or practical reality. NI is regressive enough, without abolishing the nil rate band and collecting more revenue from those with the lowest incomes. Seems collecting more tax from those most able to pay is not an 'easy option' if you have a vested interest.

Seems the Brextremists still believe or pedal all the nonsense about sovereignty and the evil bureaucrats in Brussels. Their dream is of the UK turned into Singapore with the BBC and warm beer by deregulation. It is actually now revealed as a complete nightmare of low wages and civil unrest. Exit from Brexit.

Tired of hearing the European Union for everything and this is an especially blatant example. The records and submissions of member states running EU programmes are the source of the 'errors', UK amongst them. When we are 'rid of them' the UK Government's waste can be blamed on........ ?

What would happen if we were ALL self-employed, subject to protection of working rights. We could all look after our own tax affairs by submitting a statement of total net taxable income, mostly pre-populated, and merge direct taxes? Simple?

In 1917 life for most people was hard, uncertain and short.
In 2017 life for most people is not as hard, just as uncertain and long. In 100 years what progress has happened has depended on greater equality, and tax policy for all its faults, has played a part.

Jennie Granger seems to have a sense of humour with the gambling metaphor. Nevertheless, a comedy career may not beckon as she has made HMRC sound like the Sopranos and not a tax authority.

Imprudent Accountant presents the evidence all of which suggests 'sacking your largest client' is disastrous, and then suggests the advocates would probably do it all again nevertheless. Well, leaving the European Union was an act of economic self-harm carried out for dubious political reasons. Knight Rider seems attached to 'alternative facts' and is hopefully not still waiting for £350m a week to find its way into the NHS.
