TS: Why Hector was swept away

The real reason for the sudden demise of Hector the tax inspector at the beginning of the year has been revealed.

Inland Revenue chief Nick Montagu recently divulged that his feelings towards the cartoon mascot were less than sympathetic. Indeed, he admitted he didn’t just want to have the taxman retired, he wanted him dead.

TS heard how Montagu hatched a sinister plot to assassinate the man he believed to be the impersonation of an unfair view of the taxman.

Hector was to meet his death as he entered the office, being his ‘usual irritating self’, only to fall victim to a huge pile of self-assessment forms which would fall on top of him, burying him alive.

Luckily, poor Hector was saved from this fate and given a farewell party, and sailed blissfully away down the Thames, unaware of the horrible fate which might have befallen him.
