I think the Taxman is wonderful

I didn't ever believe I'd back the taxman 100%. MP's are to be inestigated for tax avoidance/evasion click here

Perhaps this should be extended to the House of Lords, retired MPs, retired bankers and a few others.

but evasion isn't. The investigations are into allegations of evasion, and there can be pretty severe penalties for anyone caught doing that.

A cheap and unwarranted jibe at the Mail, as many are wont to do.

It's not a new story at all. For instance, see:

I think the Daily Mail is a great newspaper. I like the Letters page and the Answers page, the Sports pages are no different to the other daily rags. So why is it that people on here keep calling the daily Mail all the names under the sun. ("Sun", now there's a rag and a half)If you don't like the Daily Mail then don't read it. "Simple" as that rat/mole or whatever it is keeps telling us on the TV.

It announced the fact over a month ago, when a spokesperson said (of the revelations about second homes being claimed as first homes for tax purposes): "Once these declarations were made public, we began to examine them to ensure that MPs have paid the right tax."

The Mail is certainly a widely-read newspaper. Whether that classes it as 'great' is debatable. It's popular, but then so is Benidorm.

The Mail is fine as long as you are a blinkered tory

Since most of the stuff our leaders have been doing is exempt from tax, and they are the ones who made it it so, any fish the Revenue catch are likely to be very small ones or very stupid ones.

That might catch a lot then....
Would catch even more if 'greedy' was added to your list.
