    On another note …….

    Had Face to Face with MP today, he seemed genuinely concerned about the retrospective part of s58 and has asked our friend? DG for a response regarding his position when in opposition and his current stance. We did impress upon him that DG was giving out standard responses written by HMRC, and we didn’t think there was much mileage in this process but nonetheless he does appear to be sympathetic to our plight.

    We passed on copies of relevant documents relating to 1987 and 2008 in particular the debate attempting to amend the retrospective part of S58 in which it is quite clear from the transcript that several MPs of different political stances were vociferously against the retrospective element and included in that set of voices was DG. Our MP thought that this in particular was an ‘Achilles heel’ which may be exploited. He said he would read them all to try and get a better understanding of this complicated matter. Without question he agreed that people should be able to arrange their tax affairs according to the law as it stands and not as in this case where the law was changed retrospectively.

    The other thing he said he could do is to try and speak to other MPs who have constituents in the same situation who have contacted them regarding this and to this end he asked if there were any others in Scotland. Could anyone PM me if they have spoken to their MP in Scotland and who it is please? I said I would pass the names of the MPs on to him if I could find out this information, the more the better.

    Have a good weekend everyone - we're just off to the pub
    Thank you for your update. Well done for taking that step. Please provide DR with details of who you saw. I know that there are a number of MPs in Scotland who have offered support. We will provide the detail to you over the weekend. In the meantime enjoy the beer, you deserve it.

    Just Donated.

    Will gladly donate further in future - now doubt DR will let us all know.
    This is exactly what is needed - it's good to finally see some meaningful collective direction.
    HMRC should be concerned - their comeuppance is coming...

    Good on yer DR - you the man...

    I'm having trouble loading the joining page, i'm hoping this is due to the amount of traffic :-)

    also, it asks for donations, is this tax deductable?

    Default Monday, Monday....

    Given the campaign went live this afternoon, so a few hours after HMRC stopped work, it's likely that the first they will know of this is Monday morning. I can see it now:

    "Uh hu.. Mr B? Better call Mr D and Mr M because it looks like Mr T and the A-Team "aint payin no retro tax sucker!"
