AUSTERITY FOR SOME AND NOT OTHERS


I was taken by The Taxpayers’ Alliance’s (TPA) observation about the latest growth figures for the UK economy.  I’ll let the TPA’s Chief Executive (Matthew Elliott) speak for himself: “Yesterday the Office for National Statistics (ONS) announced that they think the economy is growing again – by 0.3% in the first quarter of this year.

MORAY: A PIECE OF THE PEACE ACTION


Never too sure about studies like these, but here goes anyway.  The Institute for Economics and Peace (oh dear) has just published its first ‘UK Peace Index’ (oh dear, oh dear) and are pleased to inform us residents of Moray that we live in the 3rd most peaceful area of Scotland, after the Orkney Islands […]

Interesting to note that the British Government is leading a charge against tax evasion by signing the UK up to an “information […]

CHAOS AT HER MAJESTY’S REVENUE & CUSTOMS


Front page news in the Daily Telegraph today (link below) and billed online as ‘Chaos over biggest employment tax shake-up in 70 years‘. The Daily Telegraph informs us that “under the new ‘Real Time Information’ (RTI) system, more than a million businesses – as well as charities, churches and families who employ nannies or cleaners […]
