I don't think you can defend someone assisting drug smugglers, and stealing taxes from all of us.

Fraud generally requires an element of deciept for unlawful gain... ...in general the revenue are not decieving people (but opperate openly at taking your taxes) and are not acting unlawfully.

You might not agree with the policies - but that doesn't make it fraudulent.

IF that's what they were doing fair enough but plenty of car dealers etc sell cars and vans that are used for smuggling.

Remember they also used to supply the Police and Customs etc.

As to stealing taxes again the government is doing that all the time - Jaqui Smith has managed to get away with 120,000 and she's the Home Secretary - wether it's fraudulent or not is a matter of opinion!!!

Codders .. I was about to lambast you , with your previous comments, but rightly .. the issue of mp's milking the system is a true rip off, as you say

Sorry off topic
