Congratulations to our "respected" Labour administration, they have laboured hard over the last 12 years to create a tax system that is truly record breaking.
Something to be proud of!
LexisNexis report that the 2009 edition of its tax guide, Tolley's Yellow Tax Handbook, contains a stonking 11,520 pages; twelve years ago it was a "mere" 4,998 pages.
It doesn't take a genius, or even a politician, to work out that despite claims by some in the Treasury and HMRC that strives are being made to simplify the tax system, the reality is quite simply the reverse.
The UK now has the longest tax code in the world.
Well done Brown and Darling!
As I have noted many times before, Brown doesn't do "simple". Until he and his party are kicked out of orifice, things will only become ever more complex and unwieldy.
Tax does have to be taxing.
