How to lose friends in tax

Occasionally TS goes through a bout of self-loathing. There’s just nothing else we can think of, other than what a terrible, horrible nasty gossip column we are.

If you have similar negative feelings about yourself then you might like to consider a new job that’s just popped up on the HMRC website. The salary? £75,000. The place? London. And the job? Anti-avoidance adviser.

Yup, anyone who wants to turn gamekeeper, and earn the disrespect of all of their current colleagues might like to consider the job. The department is looking for ‘people with recent commercial experience’, a spokeswoman says, so that it can ‘be one step ahead’ of the industry. Knock yourselves out.
