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.”

Grant Shapps on the case for a free trade in Haggis…

“President Obama – whose family tree is said to go all the way back to a 12th-century king of Scotland – has never in his life been able to buy an authentic Scottish haggis for his family, not even on Burns night. Now, you may or may not like haggis… But, to paraphrase Voltaire: I may not agree with what the Scottish eat, but I will defend to the death their right to eat it! It would be wonderful to decriminalise haggis – but, of course, most trade barriers aren’t criminal in nature…”

“I create wealth, exports and jobs. What’s wrong with that? Labour is promoting socialism – and they’re in danger of promoting communism.”
