HMRC's £14 Trillion Tax Demand

My sympathies to Giles Hembrough, a railway signal tester in Bristol, who received a £14 Trillion tax bill from HMRC last weekend (more than the US economy is worth).

The Bristol Post quotes the HMRC letter:
"Although we are changing your tax code you may still not pay enough tax by 5 April 2017.

We think the amount you owe HMRC is £14,301,369,864,489.03.

We will let you know if this amount is right when we look at your tax return for the year."
When Mr Hembrough rang HMRC to query it, the lady on the end of the line apparently said:
"'Oh that is a big amount, it looks like someone has fallen asleep on the keyboard!"
The future's bright, the future's digital!
Tax does have to be taxing.
