Arrest the fraudsters

While Camerclegg are resurrecting the database state but this time as a privatised service (Experian) to spy on evil benefit fraudsters who have pushed the benefits bill up by a stonking 0.8% (£1bn), they seem quite content to let their own fraudsters, the tax dodging rich, get away with over £15bn.

Former non-doms Zac Goldsmith and Lord Ashcroft are just two of the hyper rich who have considered themselves above the rest of society when it comes to paying tax. The HMRC have now stopped reporting some of their data on tax cheats, presumably to help their rich friends.

Not sure why I even hoped that the ConDems would be better than this...
