Re: Nothing to see here

I may have been wrong here, there may well have been a bit of minor tax dodging. Capital Gains Tax is quite easy to fiddle, there is very little scrutiny and if, as I suspect, a bit of concealment has taken place, and Ms Raynor is forced to resign, it could be very embarrassing indeesd for Dir Keir ...

Re: The Minister for Common Sense

Francis is right, of course. No matter what we think, whether we like it or not, everything is legal and above board
