HMRC Hounds Innocent Man To Insanity and Bankruptcy

As per the Guardian Patrick Cullinane's life has been ruined by the Inland Revenue. The government department has bankrupted him, kicked him out of his home, and driven him to a mental breakdown. His brothers and sisters have walked away from him and he has been unable to find work.

His crime? You might think he had committed a major white-collar tax fraud or an offshore scam depriving the Revenue of millions. But Mr Cullinane was simply an ordinary working man, earning around £18,000 a year in the 1980s largely as a casual in the film industry.

Mr Cullinane's case is so disturbing that this week Barry Gardiner, the MP for Brent North, says he will be calling for an adjournment debate in the House of Commons questioning the "governance" of the Inland Revenue and its ability to investigate complaints made by taxpayers.

    Law unto themselves and disregard for the law let alone basic humanity, this cannot continue.

    1. Above still applies, but due to the age of this info perhaps you should replace with something more up to date?

  2. An old story from 2003 BUT NOTHING HAS CHANGED IN THE FOLLOWING 13 years. The governance problems continue.

    Time for an investigation.

  3. Sorry folks that story really is past sell by date! I didn't look at the date, mea culpa!

    1. If only the Muppets were as quick to atone for theirs...

  4. Exactly, HMRC would never voluntarily make amends for any of their wrong. There should be a wide ranging independent investigation into the culture and misconduct at HMRC. Maybe the Autumn Statement next week would be an opportune time for the government to announce it?
