Dedicated to the taxpayers of Britain, and the employees of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), who have to endure the monumental shambles that is HMRC.

A Nice Little Earner
The global economy is going "tits up".
A major Belgium bank is about to fall over and precipitate another banking crisis.
The Greeks are about to default, and the Euro experiment will end in tears.
Meanwhile, in the good old UK, HMRC are busying themselves working out how to screw ever more money out of the hapless taxpayers ("customers" as HMRC likes to refer to them).
What terrific wheeze have they come up with this time?
It's a real humdinger!
Fines for late submissions of paper self assessment tax returns.
In the event that HMRC record a paper submission as being received on/after 1 November, they will issue the hapless taxpayer an automatic fine of £100.
Ker Farking Ching!
Do you want to know the best bits?
The fine will stand even if there is no tax to pay, or the tax due is paid on time!
Oh, and it gets better, if you submit a paper statement late but then submit a return online on time.......will HMRC cancel the fine?
Will they fark!
Ker Farking Ching!
HMRC will doubtless claim that this is to "encourage" us to be on time with our returns.
Fair enough, if we were working for them.
But hang on a minute, don't we pay HMRC to work for us?
Aren't we called "customers" by HMRC?
It's a funny old world and no mistake.
Oh, and by the way, given the ramshackle nature of the internal post system within HMRC and the financial incentive to record a paper return as being "late", do you trust them to be honest wrt the date of receipt?
