Big Homer Is Watching You

Theresa May's grand plans to monitor websites that we visit, in the name of "defeating" terrorism, also give other bodies the right to access what we browse.

Can you guess what other bodies?

Yes, that's right, councils and HMRC!

Don't worry though, apparently the new powers will be primarily used by police and the security services in pursuit of suspected terrorists and serious criminals.I am sure HMRC will hardly be tempted at all to spy on what we are browsing.

Tax does have to be taxing.

Professional Cover Against the Threat of Costly TAX and VAT Investigations

Insurance to protect you against the cost of enquiry or dispute with HMRC is available from several sources including Solar Tax Investigation Insurance.

  1. HMRC used to chase Organised Criminal Gangs, but now seem to be content having its highly trained investigators look at Self Assessment and Capital Gain Tax claims, as chasing bits of paper is easy, and also satisfies the quota of prosecutions they said they will get. Who is doing more harm to society than Lin Homer and her bunch of "yes" men and women?

  2. Don't see what all the fuss is about, HMRC are well versed in the RIPA Guidelines and the JAPAN mnemonic (Justified, Authorised, Proportionate and Neccesary), and that the principles of the RIPA codes are not only known but adhered to, e.g.:-
    minimisation of collateral intrusion;
    other methods for gathering data;
    uses to which the data is put etc. etc.
    After all, HMRC would never use a sledgehammer to crack a nut, would they?
    Frivolity and mirth to one side, the legislation and its use is a necessary tool in the fight against serious crime, which includes terrorism.
    So if you use social media etc to sell your wares on e.bay or to talk about it and your holiday home and yacht in Marbella, (if you are that foolish), then beware, your keystroke history will scupper your plans to defraud the treasury of the various taxes due on your sales, if applicable, unless of course you are non-dom with a Cayman Is brass plaque company.



    mind the revolving doors?

    Over to you Ken, it can't get much worse than WHOLLY INADEQUATE can it?

  4. Ooops, must have misheard it first time, just realised it was WOEFULLY INADEQUATE, which is still pretty bad?

    Also HMRC 'customer' service gone from abysmal to even worse...

    Wonder if her bags are packed yet, Gauke ought to do the honorable thing and vacate his portfolio as well.
