They are a very strange sort of people at the top of the disfunctional HMRC...when they are not out to lunch with offshore corporations and other tax-dodgers, they spend hundreds of thousands of pounds pursuing minnows like 'Arry Redknapp through the courts to no avail except yet more bad publicity.
And yet they have No Regrets?
Still, you have to remember that Dave "Free Lunches" Harnett, the supposed expert supposedly in charge is the very same imbecile who failed to persuade a jury in the Ken "Cash Please!" Dodd show-trial some years ago. Didn't do his career any harm, worse fucking luck. So I expect they'll soon be promoting Chris Martin to a better class of fine dining.
