The top ten UK tax shirkers – vote now

From the False Economy site:
The government talks tough about clamping down on benefit ‘cheats’. Yet when faced with tax avoidance by the very wealthy, which sucks far more out of our economy than benefit fraud, ministers go quiet.

To help throw some light on this murky world, the Tax Justice Network has nominated its top ten tax shirkers and we’d like you to choose the worst offender. The winner will receive a small token of our esteem.

We're not suggesting anyone is breaking the law. But that's the problem: we need action to make sure those involved in the multi-billion pound tax avoidance industry, who act legally but use loopholes and tax havens to pay less tax, are stopped in their tracks.

Take a look at the ten - in alphabetical order

Barclays
Boots
Google
George Osborne
HM Revenue & Customs
HMV
KPMG
Top Shop
SAB Miller
Vodafone
Now please vote!

The poll closes at midnight on 30 January and the award will be given on tax self-assessment day: 31 January 2011.
