Tax Amnesty

Great idea from the Lib Dems.

Apparently all my illegal workers are going to get to go legal, and get a tax amnesty.

On the amnesty for illegal immigrants, he struggled big time on whether British citizens would be given the same tax amnesty that illegal immigrants would be granted, by dint of not having oaid tax during their 10 years in the country. He admitted they hadn't thought about it! Bearing in mind that Hughes largely wrote the LibDem immigration policy, he was surprisingly woolly. Bear in mind that the LibDems have said they would bring in another £4 billionby getting tough on tax evasion! You couldn't make it up.

HUGHES: I think that British citizens would be entitled to say that they should be treated evenly. People that have been here all the time.

Nolan: Would the Lib Dems give that guarantee?

HUGHES: It is not in our manifesto but you raise a good point and I think what you would have to do in that case is once people were legitimated and regulated, then if they had been working; part of the process should be working out what they should contribute. So I think that's a perfectly reasonable proposition.

Blaggers should be interested in this. Tax amnesty for illegals, means a tax amnesty for all. For once, the human rights act would work in our favour.

Nice work Simon.

Lord Oxburgh

There is a danger being roped into running a cover up. A fellow lord has got himself into trouble.

When the University of East Anglia decided to investigate itself, they could have chosen from a wide variety of scientific or legal figures. They decided on Lord Oxburgh, despite questions about his independence. As chairman of a windfarm manufacturer, could he really impartially decide on fundamental questions of the probity of climate science?

Would Lord Oxburgh have been appointed to his position as head of the panel investigating Climategate if it had been known that his employer was a subsidiary controlled by an Italian company enmeshed in scandals involving Sicilian waste? Let me hasten to add that I am not making any accusations of either Lord Oxburgh or Falck Renewables, the company he chairs. But was he really the best choice for this inquiry?


The lesson to learn from this part, is that as a blagger, you want to keep it Lord Oxburgh has set himself up. Advice against this is a standard part of Lord Blagger's advice. Cheap at 10,000 pounds a day. It's just twice the sum a taxi driver makes in a day.

The second interesting part from the article is this

Lord Oxburgh is chairman of Falck Renewables, a builder of windfarms with six projects in operation or under construction in the UK alone. Falck Renewables is a subsidiary of Falck Group, a Milan based company that has built windfarms in Calabria and Sicily that have been part of an anti-Mafia investigation. Some of the windfarms, including one near Corleone, were completed quite some time ago, but haven't been connected to the grid. However, generous EU subsidies were forthcoming nonetheless.

A nice blag. Subsidy for building them, plus you can get a European price for the turbines, but get them built in China. It's the assembly that makes them European!

Then there is the EU subsidy blag. Get the subsidy for doing nothing. Just like the farmers. What's so good about the EU blag is that no country prosecutes, because its EU money not theirs any more. The EU won't prosecute because its like cutting off your nose to spite yourself. You don't want the public asking questions or the gravy train will end.

Italian and EU subsidies for the building of wind farms and the world’s highest guaranteed rates, €180 ($240, £160) per kwh, for the electricity they produce have turned southern Italy into a highly attractive market exploited by organised crime.

The UK price cab be around 6.5p a kwh.

That's why its such a great blag. You could even drive the turbines from the power supply to give the illusion of working. Then feed the power from the grid back to the grid

What's even better is that the mugs who pay the price, the public, are being forced by the greens to give Lord Blagger the cash!

MPs' expenses: Ian Austin tried to split the stamp duty on sunsets in Waterloo - Telegraph: "an Austin tried to split the stamp duty on sunsets in Waterloo"

Ian Austin

Ian Austin completed the purchase of the Waterloo flat on March 31 2006 but submitted claims for the stamp duty in two separate amounts: £6,770 on March 28 and £1,344 on April 3.

This allowed him to claim the majority of the money under his second home allowance for the financial year 2005-06. In total, he received £21,559 — £75 below the limit — that year.

His claim for the remaining £1,344 was turned down by the parliamentary fees office.

Quite why someone so stupid ends up as an MP. It's attempted fraud. There are far better ways of blagging it.

He should be prosecuted for giving blaggers a bad name

Tut tut. Both donor and receiptant have a lot to learn.

A little adage from computing is that you can solve any problem by adding another layer of indirection.

So if you want to pay someone off, get someone else to do it for you. If you want to be paid off, get someone else to receive the money.

Hence the insistance from MPs that they can carry on employing their wives. It's a choice of another layer of indirection.

"Take Roger Wright, for instance. He's the controller of BBC Radio 3. Now that really must be a hugely challenging job. Mr Wright is on a salary of �200,000. Last year he claimed more than �7,000 in taxi fares, compared to only �4 for an underground ticket. In 2009 he claimed �3,561 for 11 nights in a top class London hotel (�323 a night) so he didn't have to go home after each night of the Proms. No doubt he then got a taxi from that top London hotel to his office each morning, and then from his office to the Albert Hall."

Donnygate scandal ends in jail terms

Donnygate scandal ends in jail terms | Society | The Guardian:

"Donnygate scandal ends in jail terms

'Rotten' bribes network exposed in court hearing"

The worst local government corruption case since the Poulson scandal of the 1970s ended yesterday with hefty jail terms for a senior Labour councillor and the property developer who bribed him.

The four-year sentence for Peter Birks, former chairman of planning in Doncaster finished the virtual elimination of the old, miner-dominated Labour party in the South Yorkshire town, which has already seen two former council leaders and two former mayors among 21 councillors convicted of fraud.

Most were found guilty of fiddling expenses, often for small sums but damned by a series of judges as part of a wholesale culture of corruption which engulfed the mid-90s administration. But yesterday's verdicts unravelled the much more far-reaching, "rotten network" created by Doncaster developer Alan Hughes, 63, who was given five years.

I can't see that there is anything illegal. If you make up a legal system on planning which stops people using their own assets as they see fit, then its creating the ideal blag. Councils will ask for bribes in the form of section 106 agreements.

All that has happened here is a bit of private enterprise to oil the wheels so to speak.

If its good for the government (s106) its good for the councilors

The figure is around �100 more than her monthly mortgage interest costs.

Miss Kirkbride and her husband, Andrew MacKay, both announced that they would stand down from Parliament after it emerged that they designated two separate houses as their “main property,” allowing them to claim second home expenses at different addresses."

John Prescott's employee is paid hush money - Telegraph

As John Prescott tours the country drumming up support for his fellow bruiser Gordon Brown, there is one woman with good reason to avoid his "battle bus".

Mandrake can disclose that one of the former deputy prime minister's employees has won a "substantial" sum in compensation after she complained about her treatment.

Janice Morphet reached an out-of-court settlement last month that will mean any allegations about the culture in the upper echelons of the Government will not be heard in public.

Mandrake understands that taxpayers will foot the bill of more than £50,000 for the deal, under which Mrs Morphet agreed never to speak about her time in Prescott's employ. The deal was agreed just days before she was due to appear at the London Central Employment tribunal in Holborn.

Nice Blagg Mr Prescott. Get the taxpayer to bail you out of your abuse of staff.

This is on top of your other blag.

David Cameron

Cameron pays back almost �1,000 in wrongly claimed expenses | News: "David Cameron today paid back �947 in excessive expenses claims as the row over Commons allowances reignited.

The Conservative leader sent a cheque to the Commons to cover over claims including �218.91 in mortgage payments.

He admitted that he inadvertently failed to reduce his claim for taxpayer support even he moved off a fixed interest loan to lower variable rates.

Other blunders included �10 charged in error for a researcher's phone bill and �9 overpaid for a home power bill.

The cheque also included �680 that he promised to repay last month for removing wisteria and other works to his house."

If solar systems apparently produce current in the dark, will be noticed sooner or later. However, if electricity generators were connected during daytime, the swindle would hardly be noticed."

Youth Parliament teens blow thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money | The Sun |News: "TEENAGERS serving on a Youth Parliament have blown thousands of pounds of taxpayers' money on parties, pizzas and chauffeur-driven cars for themselves.

The snouts-in-the-trough scandal, which mirrors the greedy behaviour of real MPs, was revealed by a 17-year-old whistleblower.

Lydia Ellis spoke out after being sickened by the way fellow youth MPs were squandering their �45,000-a-year grant.

The money is supposed to be spent on projects to improve life for youngsters in Surrey, with special emphasis on deprived areas.

But student Lydia revealed the Surrey Youth Parliament last year blew �15,000 on a party for themselves and members of other youth councils.

The bash at Epsom Racecourse included free coach travel, food and drink, plus 200 'goodie bags' stuffed with gadgets bearing the Youth Parliament's branding.

Lydia said the parliament's 20 members - aged 13 to 18 - splash out on chauffeur-driven cars to take them to and from their meetings every six weeks at council offices in Kingston."

The deficit

It's interesting looking at the discussions about the deficit.

First is the spin that deficit means debt. Even the BBC have been peddling this.

Second is the debt figure. Left off the list is PFI, state pension, state second pension, civil service pensions, bank bailout, nuclear decommissioning, outstanding invoices, ... The total figure is huge, and dwarfs the gilt debt. All Enron accounting. Just what a blagger needs to make money.

Then take the "halve the deficit in four years" statement. Halving the deficit means 170 / 2 = 85 billion a year. However, the debts gone up in the mean time. 5% interest rates (optimistic) over 20 years means 50 billion on debt repayments. Total tax increases and spending cuts is 135 billion.

So where is this going to come from? First is spending cuts. However, don't forget inflation. Second is tax rises. However, the spin is growth. The missing word is growth in taxation. It's the only way the government gets the cash.

So will it work? Lets say the 'investment' gets a million back to work. 13K a year in benefits (tax free - nice blag). 1 million times 13K is 13 billion. So that 122 billion to come from taxes. Can those returning to work make up the difference? 122 billion divided by a million is 122,000 a year in taxes. Call it 300K a year in salary.

How many of the unemployed are going to earn 300K a year?

So who else could we tax? 122 billionaires, take everything. However, we still have to find another set the next year.

ie. It doesn't work. Period. With financial geniuses in the government who are arguing about peanuts whilst there is this massive hole shows huge incompentence.

That's why blagging the government is so easy, and so rewarding.

BBC News - Protests grow over digital bill: "The Digital Economy bill has sparked a wave of protest among consumers and rights groups."

Lord Blagger urges ever fellow blagger to get in contact with their MP over the Digital Rights Bill. Lord Blagger knows that its a great idea. Why shouldn't I be able to demand money with menaces, cut off people's internet access (they are plebs anyway)? It's all part of the government strategy to deal with legal problems anyway. If passed I wouldn't have to prove anything, the person I think is downloading has to prove it all. It's going to be hard with no internet access.

So get in contact with your MP and get them to support this bill. It's money for nothing for blaggers.
