Students March to the City on November 9

This time we are marching to the City of London to show our anger at the very financial system that has instructed the political classes to smash the last vestiges of the welfare state and public sector. The government’s plans for education need to be highlighted and opposed now more than ever, as fundamental attacks on education as a public service, and on universities as public institutions. The Higher Education White Paper entitled ‘Putting Students at the Heart of the System’, does exactly the opposite; especially if you are poor, adverse to tens of thousands of pounds of debt, or don’t go to a private school that successfully trains you to pass A Levels and ace an Oxbridge interview. Real opportunity, merit and potential are not Mr Willets’ big idea. Occupy Wall Street. Occupy High School / Colleges Universities.

Occupy LSX. OccupyLSX.

For immediate release Tel 07415063231 Email UK Uncut and students from London caused a major embarrassment for HMRC boss Dave Hartnett by staging a mock thank-you celebration from top tax dodgers during a keynote speech at the Tax Journal Conference [1].

Students and UK Uncut disrupt tax boss' conference speech

The students, dressed as executives from Vodafone and Goldman Sachs, entered the main auditorium just after Hartnett had begun speaking. Having made their way up to the stage, they presented the embattled HMRC boss with bottles of wine, flowers and champagne as a mock ‘thank you’ for Hartnett’s role in letting the firms off billions of pounds in tax. A blushing Hartnett clutched a giant thank-you card emblazoned with 'Goldman Sachs Says Thanks' as the ‘executives’ continued to sing his praises. Hartnett has come under increasing fire for striking backroom deals with mega-rich corporations that have cost the taxpayer billions of pounds at a time of austerity [2].

HMRC 'needs severe assessment' Taxman accused of letting Vodafone off £8 billion. Judge to examine Goldman Sachs tax deal - Business News - Business. The judge is expected to be given the power to examine the private accounts of Goldman Sachs and Vodafone to establish whether senior inspectors wrongly "let them off" multi-million-pound tax bills.

The National Audit Office, which is supervising the inquiry, is also considering whether to examine the tax affairs of other big companies to establish whether HMRC officials routinely signed off deals which underestimated the true liabilities of the companies. The move comes after the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee (PAC) accused Britain's top Revenue official, Dave Hartnett, of misleading Parliament following a deal with Goldman Sachs that allowed the US investment bank to avoid more than £10m in tax penalties.

It also accused officials of allowing Vodafone to pay just £1.25bn in a tax dispute with the Government, despite a potential tax bill of £8bn. The PAC had criticised HMRC because commissioners were both negotiating and signing off deals. Mr Hartnett denies lying. Sukey. Hw52kolj Shared by TamsinVincent. Massed police on Fleet Street.
