Legislate to make Tax Avoidance illegal.
The words 'avoidance' and 'evasion' have different meanings but when applied to the failure to pay taxes they amount to the same thing: shortchanging of the public purse. Our public services are losing billions of pounds per year as a result of tax avoidance. The Government needs to legislate now!
There have been petitions about this issue before but none have resulted in sufficient public support to make an impact. Successive Governments, across the Political spectrum, have failed to deal with this issue. At the time of writing, with our public services creaking at the seams for want of adequate funding, yet another major tax dodging scandal is unfolding. A practice this immoral should not be allowed to remain legal.
It is time for the public to be counted and for Government to act.
