Spaghetti anyone?

George Osborne has said:- The "spaghetti bowl" of UK tax law is to be simplified to cut the burden on business and attract foreign investment"

Well Georgie boy, we wouldn't quite describe it as a bowl of spaghetti. You see, with spaghetti, you can gently pull a string and untangle each one quite easily. It's also very fragile and easy to break - bit like the UK economy.

The tax system, with its 11,000 page booklet is more like a ribbish tip, where shit has been dumped every day for the last 5 years and shovelling shit on a monumental scale is a lot harder than untangling a bit of spaghetti with your fingers. Good luck!

A good solution would be to set fire to the whole thing, burn it to the ground and start again. Got a match?
