Commiserations to Adam hart-Davis, who has been booted out of any future HMRC advertising campaigns.
It seems that the recent comments by Mr Hart-Davis about wishing that the tax system was simpler, and describing VAT as "absurdly complicated", has not gone down well with HMRC.
Mr Hart-Davis, for good measure, then called for a flat rate tax and said that the merger of the Inland Revenue and Customs & Excise in 2005 was a mistake. His rationale being that the two departments were too large to "slam together".
HMRC hit back and said:
"We will not be using Mr Hart-Davis in any self-assessment advertising campaigns in the future."
I guess they won't be approaching me to front their future campaigns?
Tax does have to be taxing.
