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!!!
