So when you've all cleverly worked out how to avoid tax, who do you think will make up the difference?

The 5% of the British tax paying public that carry the rest of the socialists, scroungers and methylated psychopaths.

After today, in the words of the dear leader, you can only be middle class if you earn less than £80,000, otherwise you're wealthy.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Friend of mine won the lottery, earns more than that in interest a fortnight. Is he now upper class landed gentry?

Had you invested $1,000 in Berkshire Hathaway in 1964, you'd have a shade under $12,000,000 today. I didn't
.

Where can I buy Berkshire Hathaway shares and how can I get back to 1964?

You can buy the shares quite easily in the market place. 1964 isn't difficult either and here is a suggestion. Smoke a little Lebanese while listening to Cohen's Suzanne in a darkened room with the patchouli candles softly burning.

If,you had 1000"bucks spare cash in 1964 the last thing,you would,be,thinking about is warren buffet. If you were able to thing about anything !

Just sell the shares and don't even tell the taxman. Chances are he won't even notice

But if I managed to get back to 1964 (by whatever means) I would be 14 years old, so I would be too young to buy shares.

B****r Jeremy was right, the economy is rigged.

Might need to declare taxes, but just go see what the goodwill of humankind can do for you.

Also, the same video you make for that might get a better response from you providers, once it's posted and gets some action.

Burrocrats hate to be outdone by the general unwashed.

Write a very nice letter to Carlos Slim. He probably owns the hospital you have in mind.
