Gordon Brown and Alastair Darling have unveiled a new "Tax Framework for Business" at a global trade and investment conference in London, reports the Telegraph.
The tax framework he announced merely promised a tax system based on "competitiveness, fairness, simplicity". It also pledged a "commitment to lowering compliance costs".
Err, and how does Brown reckon this going to work when tax harmonisation is in the pipeline from Brussels and also there are presently 42 legislative acts on taxation in various stages of preparation, which include legislation involving Corporation Tax, Turnover Tax, VAT and Excise Duty.
Just a thought.........
And still our politicians persist in maintaining this charade that they 'govern' us!
