I was interested to see in today's times that attempts are being made to target the richest 100,000 people in the country for tax fraud. However despite these good intentions the article reported that:
- In 2007 four hundred people earned more than £10,000,000. Out of the 400 on 65 paid any tax.
P.S. For those not familiar with the picture at the top of this blog its graffiti from Stokes Croft in Bristol showing five "benefit cheats" - Harry, Wills, Charlie, Liz and Phil. (thanks to Bristol Graffiti for the picture)
