It's nice to see that those running HMRC believe in fairy tales.
Following on from sacking Adam Hart-Davis, as a result of his less than complimentary interview about HMRC, a new face to front HMRC has been found.
None other that "veteran" (I don't mean old) newsreader Moira Stewart.
Ms Stewart will make her TV comeback using the slogan:
"Tax needn't be taxing."
A variation on the old tag line "tax doesn't have to be taxing".
Appearing as a fairy godmother, she will tell taxpayers how to fill in tax forms.
Rather disconcertingly an HMRC spokesman said:
"We envisage her spearheading the campaign for some time.
Her relaxed manner will get people in order.
She has authority and a serious reputation."
"Get people in order!"???
I can't say that I care for the implications of that turn of phrase!
Tax does have to be taxing.
