Yesterdays Fenland Citizen had a letter from regular correspondent John Smithie who deliberately conflates tax avoidance (which is legal) with tax evasion ( which is illegal).
Loony lefty Smithie was moaning that rich people were avoiding tax. Perhaps Smithie should consider that almost everyone avoids paying tax not just rich people.
Ordinary people avoid paying VAT when they decide to save money instead of buying a new cooker or telly, over 15 million ordinary people have avoided Income Tax when they open ISA’s. People with pensions avoid both Income Tax and National Insurance and the millions that are into home brewing avoid both VAT and Alcohol Duty.
Millions of ordinary people avoid all sorts of taxes every day and its perfectly legal because thats what the law says.
No doubt the Citizen includes Smithies badly written missives due to their comedy value.
Also in the Citizen was a report of a few misguided souls gathering at the Freedom Bridge roundabout because they don’t like what the voters in another country have done. Martin Field and Sue Marshall (who is the labour party constituency chairwoman) don’t like the election of Donald Trump even through its nothing to do with them.
These useless fools would rather protest about something they can’t influence or change instead of concentrating on the problems that the Fenland area faces. These people live in Fenland, why on earth are they tilting at windmills about a foreign country 3,000 miles away.
What sad little people they must be.
