Marina Hyde on why UK tax is so untaxing

“The Hong Kong tax code, widely held by tax lawyers to be the most admirably efficient in the world, is 276 pages long. The British tax code, rapidly beginning to look like the most disingenuous in the world, is currently in excess of 17,000 pages.  It has more than trebled in size since 1997.”
