Credit reference agencies will cross-check details of the income people declare on their tax returns against their spending patterns to identify “high” and “medium” risks of both illegal and legal tax avoidance.

So how does the story go, using a credit card makes sense because "it's easier" ? What's easier ? For whom ?
Or was it more like, "you get a 3% discount when paying at selected retailers" or some similar load of bollocks which upon examination turns into a sort of "you pay on average 12% more plus various random fees plus a minimum fixed each month" ? Sounds like a great deal, seriously now, don't mind me, I'm just the sort of grinch that doesn't go for the great deal of "pay us more to get even less!!!1". An old fashioned sort.
But here's the kicker :
It is simply not fair that at a time when most people are making a contribution to balancing the nation’s books, there is a small minority of taxpayers who try to escape their responsibility.

The fuckwit didn't get elected by the people he's proposing to fleece. He got elected on a popular vote. He then went about spending money he didn't have to pay back the mob that voted him in (rather than some other perfectly identical Joe). And now he wants, get a load of this, he wants "a minority", ie, the people who have money, to be responsible "like everyone else", ie, the people who never have had and never will have money, for the fact that he bought votes with promises of largesse from an otherwise empty public treasury ? Johnny Millionaire should be held accountable for the fact that Joe Politician told Jimmy Dumbfuck that "Vote Joe, Free Money For Every Schmoe" ?
How exactly does this bullshit work ? And don't start with the "if you have a business you didn't build that business" : I have a business, I did build it, I've paid something like 2-3% effective ever since I can remember, and I will forever continue to pay something between pretty much zilch and absolutely nothing at all until and unless things change significantly. And I do quite mean it : significantly.
Joe Politician should be hung, drawn and quartered. As far as I'm concerned, money starts flowing again once I am presented with socialist politicians' heads on platters. As the old saying goes, millions for a just cause, but not a farthing in bribes, my dear Dumbfucks. And yes, I do quite mean it : I want socialist politicians physically assaulted, their heads physically removed from their physical bodies and the resulting bloody mess presented to me on an actual platter, preferably sterling. This is the minimum requirement.
Figure it out.
