Chase up the taxes; Mailbag letters also appear online at www.examiner.co.uk/letters Mailbag.
Of course, there is an alternative to the politics of austerity which are being carried out at the behest of the very people who caused the financial crisis in 2007-8. Research by the Tax Justice Network reveals the UK's tax gap at a whopping pounds 120 billion!
This breaks down as pounds 70 billion for tax evasion, pounds 25 billion for tax avoidance and pounds 25 billion a year for tax paid late.
If this tax evasion by the super rich was dealt with then there would be no need to condemn millions of people to unemployment, poverty and declining public services.
