          People, you're not alone on this, never have been and never will be. Yes there are the Tax Courts down the line, but way before then it's time to dance to a different beat and tempo. And this time it's of our making.

          This is no longer just a matter of what others may do for us, it's about what we can do for ourselves. The latter word having a meaning well beyond just those caught up in this. I'd not use names like Bodie & Doyle, but the title that goes with it would be rather fitting.

          Good weekend all and thanks for the support.

                MP Visit

                At last some positive action – well done to everyone concerned. I’m going to get my credit card out.

                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

                    Will everyone who has had any contact or a meeting with their MP please PM DR with details, we need to build up a database of who is prepared to support us.
