Seemingly, until HMRC and the government started talking about it, British business and the British people had never heard of or used anything that could be remotely defined as "digital".
In effect the state has invented "digital".
To mark this breakthrough the government today published its UK Digital Strategy:
"This strategy sets out how we will build on our success to date to develop a world-leading digital economy that works for everyone."On perusal this "strategy" lumps together various dog end policy objectives and "on message" phrases by liberally pasting the word "digital" into every sentence and headline.
Those of you who will end up having to cope with HMRC's half arsed MTD plans (that's all of us by the way!) may find the ICAEW's MTD resource centre a modest start.
Tin hats everyone!
Tax does have to be taxing.
