Jaques Peretti.

To sum up: Only little people pay taxes.

It's giving me an uncontrollable urge to reach for my Barrett. :smokin

Bl**dy IT

I saw an advert for a tax inspector before doing my degree. I mentioned it to some family and friends' and their response was "Don't be so bl**dy stupid."

And just to make things clear, 80 of this lot own as much as the remaining 7 billion on this rock.

So don't run away with the idea that any of us are anything even close to this sort of wealth.

Not true, that was a trailer on the PM programme. The chap from the R4 statistics programme 'More or Less' came onto PM to tell Eddie Mair off. I think that statistic should have been the 85 richest own as much as the poorest half of the world.

Still a shocking statistic though.

If you want to see where you fit on that worldwide scale, put your annual take-home money (inc expenses!) into here:

Still feeling modest?

There are 3 million people whose annual income is more than mine, but 150 million own more than me. Must work harder, and spend less.

"My wealthy mother was the largest tax payer in the West Indies"

"Jamaica?"

"No. She paid of her own accord!"

Classic tax joke.
