  1. The only way around this problem is to Put Your Money Where Their Mouth Is,no cash in hand then.......
  2. Of course this is morally wrong. As every millionaire MP knows, the only way to get paid for those "little jobs on the side" is to put it straight in an offshore account under a dummy company name of which you happen to be sole director!
  3. It would appear that that Mr 'Morality' Gauke was quite happy to use taxpayer's cash to pay his stamp duty. Exactly how is that moral?

    The sight and sound of these arrogant, smug, untouchables, explaining about morality is as sickening as a mother of twelve, by nine different fathers, demanding a bigger council house as her 'right'; another example of a meeting of two types of scrounger, at least the dolie doesn't lecture me on the rights and wrongs of life.

    He looks like a fat Jimmy Carr, and he is a sanctimonious prig.

    what chef said.
  5. I don't see how it is 'morally wrong' to pay someone in cash. The recipient is responsible for filing his own tax return, it has nothing to do with the person who is paying

  6. MP and Moral in the same sentence now surely that is an Oxymoron
  7. Let me get this right.

    MPs want us to now take responsibility for the legal adherence of other people's actions?

    Silly man.
  8. Currently, just being an MP is morrally wrong , hence no decent people want to get involved in the corrupt trade .

  9. Absolutely correct mate, if you pay cash in hand it's not your responsibility to make the tradesman pay tax.

    presumably you're complicit by not asking for a receipt or then dobbing them in to the taxman.
  11. Yeah, I agree it's morally wrong and they should crack down on it big time!

    How about for a start, they look at the 13 trillion to 20 trillion quid hidden by the super rich first?

    Admittedly this is a global report but even so, what with the recent disclosures of massive allbeit legal tax evasion schemes, how much money from the UK is being secreted out of the country to tax havens.

    Perhaps the plumbers et al would be more happy to cough up if the super rich stopped, to put it quite bluntly, taking the piss!

    according to UK: without a bank account - The Poverty Site there are still 5% of the uk population without a bank account, and with rural banks and post offices still closing by the dozens, there is a need for cash in hand payments in some communities.

  13. Most tradesmen insist on cash as to many twats bounce cheques , in addition banks seem to want to get rid if cheques all together so it does not leave the tradesman much option than to ask for cash , a mobile credit/debit card machine would cost around £30 p.m plus upto 3% to process credit cards assuming the bank would even let a self employed tradesman have one!

    The MP is a stupid **** who has not thought it trough.

  14. OT, but they are also proposing legislation which will allow the driver of a car to be prosecuted for littering if a passenger throws something out of the window. These days it seems we are our brother's/plumber's/sparky's keeper...
