20bn£/year go through tax avoidance (legal through loopholes). = 20bn austerity for next 4-5 years this parliament from 2015. and was around the same from 2010 as Tories came to power forming coalition with lib dems. // who can pay for the lawyer and lobbyist - to implement loopholes. // its the gov that lets make the rules, by lobbyists. // (New Labour) Gordon Brown cut corp tax in his time by 5% and Osborne will have it cut by further 10% points in his two parliament sittings as chancellor. "You can't compete with Zero." << Cayman Islands (no infrastructure and no educated people) - vs. - UK (with infrastructure and educated people, social safety net, pensions). // ultimately, tax laws have to be changed in the local country, not cayman islands.

you can never anticipate when change, social change comes. legislation is usually a response to change. mental health is last big taboo. // >> "Control the Message." << you can not control where the message goes. you can only control what you say and what you do << budget deficit. need to get into surplus. to pay down debt. but not telling not the disabled increased the budget deficit so massively, but the bankers bailout and the pensioners. and the corporate welfare. never was the cause adressed. what is easier? cut minority? or tax your party funders? the city and non-doms and super rich? mega properties? // what is easier to cut? cancer service, child protection service, mental health service?

New year, old grievances: why Britain’s bugbears in 2016 look very familiar | Martin Boon | Opinion | The Guardian
A new survey of what’s on our minds reveals a nation still obsessed with the same things as in the 1960s - inequality and immigration [...] Seven out of 10 suggest that inequality and immigration create the biggest societal divides of today [ but tories take on what is easiest, immigration. but not inequality ] So nothing’s changed, and it’s likely not much will – at least, not if you’re a member of our world-weary public, exasperated with the collective failure of political solutions to modern-day grievances.

HMRC still failing taxpayers, say MPs - BBC News
HMRC's record of 11 prosecutions for offshore tax evasion in the past five years as "woefully inadequate". Despite being handed a list of 3,600 British people who hid money in Switzerland, the tax collectors have prosecuted just one person involved. Instead, the tax collectors have offered reduced penalties to people who come forward with information about money they have hidden overseas, something the committee said was no substitute for the "deterrent effect" of prosecution. It said wealthy people who hide money offshore needed to be dealt with "robustly". The MPs said HMRC had also ignored some of their previous recommendations. [...] 11,000 full-time equivalent posts being cut since 2010. "It has been abundantly clear for years that the department has cut too many staff and that services are suffering," said PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka. "The department needs major investment backed by a real political commitment to tackle tax evasion and avoidance as an alternative to more
