“This difference of punishment between the woman who needs to feed her family every week and tax evaders/avoiders who needs more money in their already-full-pockets stems from lawyers who proofed the laws before they are passed. The negligence after they were passed lies with all MPs who voted for it for not reading the complete law before they were passed. Most of tax frauds are lawyers or people who are legally advised by lawyers. Never-the-less - the law should be changed today - 2/August/2017 to punish tax frauds by paying twice the amount they were caught evading. Meantime punish the welfare frauds with a weekly total hours of 20-hours per week of Community work. ” — Eti Deacon Eves
