Revenue to seize possessions of anti-war protestor

A 72-year old man, who withheld 10% of his income tax as part of a personal
protest against the war in Iraq, could have his possessions seized by HM Revenue
and Customs.

Chippenham Magistrates’ Court dismissed the protest of Douglas Barker of
Purton, near Swindon, and gave permission for the recovery of £1,215 that he was
said to owe.

According to The Times, Barker, said that the war was illegal and he
should not be forced to pay for it
