Tax dodgers: tweet your MP today
By 38 Degrees team
You couldn’t make it up. Last week we found out Npower haven’t paid a single penny in corporation tax for the last 3 years. Now it’s revealed that Npower’s former chief, Volker Beckers has been given an ‘oversight’ role at HMRC.
It feels like we can’t go a week without new tax dodging revelations from some of the UKs biggest household names. To recruit a top boss from one of the culprits into a leadership position at the top of the government departments responsible for sorting out this debacle beggar’s belief.
To get involved. Just enter your postcode below to tweet your MP:
Many of us are feeling the pain of government cuts. Mark Williams of anti-tax dodging campaigners UK Uncut explained why they are joining in.
“It is no surprise the government loses billions of pounds to corporate tax dodgers every year when they hire those same tax dodgers to oversee tax inspectors. HMRC should be throwing the book at people like Volker, not hiring them.”
