Free HMRC workshops 25 Sep 2008

Few people seem to know that HM Revenue & Customs offer free workshops around the UK on various subjects to do with tax, employment and other money matters. Here's a list of what they offer.

Let's get our money back 07 Apr 2008

British taxpayers have spent over £10 million in the Princess Diana inquest that today returned the verdict that she was unlawfully killed. Something we all already knew. So let's get our money back.
