Spare a thought for revenue agency staff

Posted by: Nick Shaxson in: Thoughts

An email to me from someone (who needs to stay anonymous) from a rich-world revenue agency, who has often confronted the problem of tax havens:

“The poor plebs who work for revenue agencies are generally on your side. We hate the politically driven excuses even more than you, because it grinds you down day after day to see people getting away with distant murder.”

I am sure that is right.

I am ploughing through your book and have had first hand experience in the offshore set up. It is a joke, unfortuately one that is going to cost a child her home. Please if you could look up David Laws my MP, he is a good man and send him a copy of your book. He should read it, he would be the one with the “will”. He could do it, we are running out of time.
