  8. Vodafone

    Found this on another forum, had me in stitches! Dear All I thought I would share my ongoing, and unresolved, problems with Vodafone in case anyone had never used their crummy tax-avoiding service before. In summary, I have spoken to a total of 14 (forteen) different customer services...

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2011/dec/06/hmrc-tax-deal-vodafone Was the deal done with vodafone illegal ? As also mentioned in the article a judge is already setting up an enquiry into the head of HMRC ? Could this be the tax version of the Leverson report ?

    Wonderful piece from the Telegraph on White Poppies: At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, I am sure the thoughts of all Telegraph readers will be with those British and Commonwealth Service men and women who fell in the defence of our liberty. But spare a thought, too, for the...

    Some reforms to consider

    1 - Scrap televised debates (the one's that started this year with the 3 main party leaders). That's nothing to do with policy and more to do with media training. 2 - Ban politicians in office and candidates as soon as they are standing for office from appearing on 'entertainment' programmes...
