Stalinism and HMRC

Did Lesley Strathie really say this?

"At a 'town hall event' Strathie said:

'I think you need to be a bit like Stalin, a dictator, to create a democracy.'



Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Scary! Is this why vat expenses are not being paid by customs lately? What's going on? Mine are 3 months overdue and I'm being delayed and delayed!

    Are the overpaid Stalin dictators at the top ordering for every business to be robbed?

  2. a fine example that power corrupts. The woman is actually bonkers and should not be in that position.

  4. Beware that naughty watchdog
    who kept a critical log
    of errors made by HMRC,
    bravely defened by Miss Lesley Strathie
    who said they usually get things right
    but never once sounded contrite.

  5. What about the England game? Dire!

  6. HMRC are shite and so are England.
    Hartnett and Strathie must have had something to do with it.

  7. Look on the bright side, last two posters. That useless bunch of no-hopers in South Africa will be paying 50% tax on their 'hard' earned pay. Pity it's not 100%.

  8. lmao - HMRC are shite and so are England!!
    Hartnett and Strathie definately have something to do with it. They systematically piss off everyone in the UK.

  9. I bet she is single and has lots of cats

  10. and a broom stick

  11. throw a bucket of water over her?
