Jaw-dropping news reaches TS that King Abdullah of Jordan has taken it upon himself to dress up in disguise to find out how the country’s tax authorities really treats its citizens.
ACCA’s head of tax, Chas Roy-Chowdhury, has rushed to tell us that Gordon Brown should follow the king’s example to discover just what’s going on in the Inland Revenue.
We’re slightly sceptical that any amount of clothing could cover up Prudent Gordon’s Scottish brogue, a dead give-away (geddit?) if ever there was one.
Still, it might be worth a try. Dawn Pimarolo could have a wander round Customs while Gordon’s at the Revenue.
We suggest that she tries dressing up as a tea lady. That would suit her style.
