tax loopholes can be avoided by the Treasury not having interns from Goldmann-Sachs.

I agree with Stephen Pollard’s berating of Patricia Hodge’s and her apparent hypocrisy, whilst regretting that she has been found to be guilty of such.

I have applauded and even enjoyed her dogged pursuit of those, who have exploited our badly constructed tax laws. Those who evade paying their dues to the governance of our Nation.

I have welcomed her pursuit of those, who, in a sense, are responsible for the dismantling of our armed forces and the politicising of our Police Force.

The latter, being accurately described in Frederick Forsyth’s column.
My problem is that it seems to be a case of set a thief to catch a thief, whereby, there does not seem to be any other politician willing, or competent enough to take on this role.

If we debar Patricia Hodge from future participation in such enquiries, who will replace her.

I, personally have doubts, based on viewing such committee’s, that anyone can be found, who isn’t either equally tainted, or totally incompetent.
The obvious solution is to employ people in The Treasury, who can construct tax laws, which avoid deliberately creating such loopholes but that would seem to be a pipe dream.

A very taxing question for red-faced Margaret Hodge

I AGREE with Stephen Pol1ard’s criticism of Margaret Hodge and her apparent hypocrisy, whilst regretting that she has been found to be guilty of such (“Margaret Hodge’s blatant hypocrisy just beggars belief”, May 1).

I have applauded and even enjoyed her dogged pursuit of those who have exploited our badly constructed tax laws.

My problem is there does not seem to be another politician willing, or talented enough, to take on this role. If We debar Margaret Hodge from future participation in such enquiries,who will replace her?

The obvious solution is to employ people in the Treasury who can construct tax laws which avoid deliberately creating such loopholes. But that would seem to be a pipe dream.
