200,000 people were prosecuted for not having a TV licence last year but HMRC won’t prosecute Swiss tax cheats

Posted on

Last year more than 200,000 people were prosecuted for not having a TV licence.

More than fifty - many of them women - went to prison for it.

But HMRC say it is not in the public interest to prosecute tax criminals and the bankers and accountants who set arrangements for them.

How can that be?

Which minister wants to explain how we go to this absurd position?
