  1. Poll: off topic, I know, but ...

    I don't read the Daily Mail, but was pointed towards this article on the man who is quick to brand us as 'morally repugnant'. I thought it would be worth sharing. Lets make it the No 1 best seller...
  2. I was just wondered that while Jeremy Corbyn is...

    I was just wondered that while Jeremy Corbyn is doing his 'man of the people' stint, with questions being put directly to the PM from the public, is it possible to craft a question that could...
  3. I'm afraid I have to agree. Writing to MPs and...

    I'm afraid I have to agree. Writing to MPs and so on will result in a lot of false hope, because when push comes to shove they will fall into line even when they make all the right noises. There's...
  4. Poll: WHS. I'm not going to get too worried about a...

    WHS. I'm not going to get too worried about a letter that doesn't even exist yet, and even if it did, we don't know what's in it. I just want to get it done. MP have been great, supporting us for...
  5. Poll: I wonder how much HMRC would want to drag this...

    I wonder how much HMRC would want to drag this out into the public eye anyway. All we have to do is to correctly point out that we were prepared and wanted to go to court in 2007. The subsequent...

    Signed and paid up for the ride. Let's get ready to rumble. :ladybags:

    Well, to make that work, you'd have to interpret 'admission' of being of the variety that implies a guilt, which even HMRC themselves have said is not the case. Their argument was that the scheme...

    Interesting. From a S58 point of view, where we were threatened with a fraud investigation, if it was proven that there was no foundation for that accusation to be made, would that amount to a HMRC...
  9. Poll: On the bright side, that's 25 times more than...

    On the bright side, that's 25 times more than they used to pay. I heard her being interviewed by Peter Allen on Radio 5 Live recently. He tackled her on that and she made lots of excuses, and then...

    I wonder if it is as simple as they can't cope with the workload and have to withdraw due to a possible technical breach on their side? A wild guess. Very odd indeed, and worrying too.
  11. Poll: Exactly. Should be interesting to see how the...

    Exactly. Should be interesting to see how the Tories start to portray pensioners as being scroungers off the state so they can cut state support, but if there is anyone twisted, ruthless and...
  12. Poll: Because we are going to court. Anything said on...

    Because we are going to court. Anything said on this forum that could be be used by HMRC will be added to, exaggerated and twisted. You may not want to go to court, and that's fine, it is your...

    Worth a read.

    HMRC take note:

    HMRC could face claims for costs from taxpayers who have been subject to unnecessary investigations.

    and
  14. Poll: I agree. Personally, my life has been put on...

    I agree.

    Personally, my life has been put on hold for the fast 12 years. Things I could have done, I'll never be able to now. Even if we win, we have all paid a heavy price that goes beyond...
  15. Poll: Off topic, I know, but Radio 5 Live right now -...

    Off topic, I know, but Radio 5 Live right now - Hodge the Dodge getting a grilling of her own on her offshore tax affairs.
  16. Poll: It's another stall tactic. No doubt they will...

    It's another stall tactic. No doubt they will claim they've been overwhelmed while holding out for another slippery bit of legislation.
  17. Poll: Excellent, thanks - knew it was a daft question. ...

    Excellent, thanks - knew it was a daft question. Well, if that's all they've got then, they're sunk.
  18. Poll: Possibly a stupid question, but does CCWs use of...

    Possibly a stupid question, but does CCWs use of the word drop us in it from a legal perspective no matter how patently daft it is?
  19. Poll: Yeah, well I hope when he dries his eyes that he...

    Yeah, well I hope when he dries his eyes that he thinks about what he and his fellow Hectors put literally 1000s of families through. Suck it up.
  20. Poll: Totally agree. The election will cause a bit of...

    Totally agree. The election will cause a bit of upheaval and might work in our favour, but the time to strike is now, otherwise a new extension to their powers will be announced in the Autumn...
  21. Poll: Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!!!!! Let's get it on. ...

    Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!!!!! Let's get it on.

  22. Poll: Perhaps NTRT members should have a secret ballot...

    Perhaps NTRT members should have a secret ballot on how we should proceed, and we should act accordingly immediately? I am of the mind that we have an opportunity here, while political minds are...
  23. Poll: I have an F word or two for them. I think they...

    I have an F word or two for them. I think they have made it worse on themselves. After all the lies and bulltulip we have have had to put up from them down the years, now they have the nerve to call...
  24. Poll: Me too - I am also worried that this is a...

    Me too - I am also worried that this is a delaying tactic to give them time to come up with a new bit of legislation to counter this argument. I say go now.
  25. Poll: And it's worth pointing out that if we were to...

    And it's worth pointing out that if we were to pursue malfeasance against a few HMRC officers, and it was found that they had, without basis, made this threat against us, libelling us, in an attempt...
  26. Poll: And when they lose, and they will, how is she...

    And when they lose, and they will, how is she going to explain that not only did they blow S58, but they maliciously abused the system in an attempt to stitch up a couple hundreds if not thousands of...

    :rollin:

    Brilliant summation of Hector's position. I think we should go to FTT asap. This is a stalling tactic, and given what they have done to us in the past, I really don't want another...
  28. Poll: They have no chance of proving fraud. It's a...

    They have no chance of proving fraud. It's a complete load of tosh. Remember the reason that attracted all of this to the scheme was its emphasis on openness, honesty and transparency. there isn't...
  29. Poll: Just out of curiosity, and for the benefit of any...

    Just out of curiosity, and for the benefit of any of our HMRC 'friends', how do the courts view malicious and false accusations of fraud to cover up personal incompetence in public office?
  30. Poll: Good to know they might be crapping themselves...

    Good to know they might be crapping themselves for a change, we have nothing to lose. Good luck to all on the NTRT team as we move into what appears to be a critical phase.
  31. Poll: Lol - yep. Also love the arrogance of the...

    Lol - yep. Also love the arrogance of the apology. 'inconvenience'. Is that what they think they are doing to us? Being an inconvenience? Jesus wept.
  32. Poll: Grandfathering argument accepted maybe on some...

    Grandfathering argument accepted maybe on some other scheme which could be applied to us? Seems very peculiar. You'd have thought that if they were going to reissue, they would have mentioned it -...
  33. Poll: That's the one. I was just referring to the...

    That's the one. I was just referring to the speculation at the end. There wasn't much to get excited about in it, most of it has appeared here.
  34. Poll: Let's hope they stick to that. I see little...

    Let's hope they stick to that. I see little point in pursuing us if the George argument has merit. The principle of creating retrospective tax legislation has already been established in their...
  35. Poll: MP Letter

    A new letter from MP dropped on the mat. Nothing too new except for a projected timeline which shouldn't come as too much of a shock.
  36. Poll: A self-financed fight, on top of being out of...

    A self-financed fight, on top of being out of pocket because of the APNs I would imagine will be a near impossibility for most people. Added to that, I wonder what the chances are of getting costs...
  37. Poll: Don't be under the illusion that we are dealing...

    Don't be under the illusion that we are dealing with anything but an shower of utter bastards. The fact that they can fine you because you didn't give them money that belonged to you when they...
  38. Poll: I too would just like to add my thanks and...

    I too would just like to add my thanks and gratitude to DR, Santa Claus and the NTRT Steering Group for all they have done. Also to my fellow members of NTRT who have all contributed to this fight...

    When you think about it, a win at Huitson lets everyone off the hook …

    Especially to those benefitting from it, eh? Surely you don't think, even for a nano-second, that Joe Public, whose opinions were made loud and clear to us on S58 by you, think it's acceptable. If...

    I'm starting to feel a bit excited about this. :happy
  42. Poll: I'm listening to the budget. Next on the hit...

    I'm listening to the budget. Next on the hit list are umbrellas, agencies so as to protect those that are 'genuinely self-employed'. Wonder where that one is going. Lot's about unacceptable...

    You got to admit though, he / she has got a way with words! In a Dr Seuss nonsensical but rhythmic sort of way. :laugh

    In terms of representation, HMRC may count on us not being able to afford it, but if the point is established, I'm sure there will be no-win / no-fee solicitors willing to step in too. And being the...

    I note the last sentence in the article. They're already preparing to blur the success line, now the emphasis will be on how many settled before going to court. They will count uncontested APNs as...
  46. Probably best that we don't speculate. HMRC have...

    Probably best that we don't speculate. HMRC have in the past read out quotes from this forum, in court, to discredit our legal representation. We don't want to give them any room for manoeuvre.
  47. Never mind the fact that George Osborne and his...

    Never mind the fact that George Osborne and his family set up offshore trust funds to avoid paying inheritance tax, a saving of £1.6m. What I don't understand is how the relatively small amount I...

    Can we print double-sided, so that we can use both of his faces?
