Please, Don't Pay Cash Says "Gobbler" Hartnett

Laughing All The Way To The Demi-Tasse

Dave "The Gobbler" Hartnett, nominated for the Nobel Prize For Dining Out At Your Expense, is imploring hard-up households not to pay cash to tradesmen and cleaners as it is damaging the economy.

"Please, don't hand over your hard-won cash. Use an Amex Platinum Card, or maybe get a large tax efficient offshore corporation to pick up the tab. Works for me!"

Having just paid my corporation tax, business VAT, employee paye and self assessment I am well aware how much money HMRC steals off me. Paying cash in hand is one small way of recovering my money from these bastards.

He's definitely on the fucking list.

As my granny taught me 70 years ago, "Cash is King, my boy - and don't you forget it".
