Last month I completed my tax return for the year 2016-17. I was relieved to finish it relatively early as often I procrastinate and do it shortly before the deadline on 31st January.

Today, we've had the revelation that Queen Elizabeth II has been avoiding paying some of her taxes by hiding money in an offshore tax haven. She is one of the richest women and must be laughing her head off to think that people like me pay all our taxes while she behaves like a free-living parasite on the backs of other hard-working people.
