Watching the House on TV, I sometimes wonder whether or not many of the MPs are breaking this law.

8. It is illegal not to tell the tax man anything you do not want him to know, but legal not to tell him information you do not mind him knowing

Anyone know how this works?
So you don't tell the Tax Man (or woman) something, but if they find it out you just say that you don't mind them knowing that and everything's ok...
