I see the HMRC have started naming and shaming tax dodgers:

I think this is a good idea, but it does beg the question - Did HMRC only managed to nail 9 people/companies for this - I was expecting a list as long as my arm!

Always the small-fry...presumably they don't give gifts to the Party either. One law for the majority, another for the elite etc etc

All sounds a bit small beer compared to the stories we've been reading re big business and the likes of Jimmy Carr.
Is a hairdresser, a coach operator etc really the best thye can come up with?

In reply to balmybaldwin: I have an ISA and I pay into my pension through salary sacrifice, am I on the list?

Seriously, I think there is an issue with tax avoidance but the issue is more around the inequality of it - i.e. it's easy for the rich individual and multi-national companies to dodge tax but hard for a small company or average person (beyond the state-sanctioned method mentioned above).
