A Taxing Question

This example shows the importance of accuracy in your tax return.

The HMRC has returned the Tax Return to a man in Evesham,  Worcestershire, after he apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly.

In response to the question, ‘Do you have anyone dependent on you?’ the man wrote:-

2.1 million illegal immigrants,

1.1 million crackheads,

4.4 million unemployable Jeremy Kyle scroungers,

90,000 criminals in over 85 prisons,

Plus 649 self serving, lying posers in our Parliament and the entire
European Commission.

The HMRC stated that the information he gave was unacceptable.

The man’s response back to HMRC was, “Sorry, but whom did I miss?”

Britain Unveils World’s “Toughest” Counter-Terrorism Law

The government argues that the new powers—intended to prevent British jihadists from fighting abroad and to stop them from returning if they do—are necessary to keep Britain safe.

A key provision of the new law would authorize the government to seize the passports of terror suspects traveling to Iraq, Syria and other jihadist battlegrounds.

Despite the fact that the editorial had absolutely nothing to do with Jews or Israel, editors nonetheless chose the following photo, from a 2008 White House Hanukkah ceremony, of former President Bush in front of a menorah.

Palestinian State and Obama, Will He Vote Yes or No?

Beyond the Cusp

There is a high expectation that by the end of the week, if not today, the Jordanian delegation to the United Nations will use their seat on the Security Council to place into consideration the petition for a Chapter Seven Resolution establishing a Palestinian Arab state in Gaza, Judea and Samaria using the 1949 Armistice lines, often referred to as the pre-1967 war borders despite the Arab League refusal to recognize them as a border for the state of Israel, with East Jerusalem as its Capital City. According to Voice of Israel public radio, any unilateral declaration of independence is a violation of the Oslo Accords and that if it receives international support, this would render all diplomatic agreements as void.
