HMRC Don’t Possess A Sense Of Humour!

In response to the question;“Do you have anyone dependent on you?”

One man answered: “2.1 Million illegal immigrants, 1.1 Million crackheads, 4.4 million unemployable Jeremy Kyle scroungers, 900,000 criminals in over 85 prisons, plus 650 idiots in Parliament, and the whole of the European Commission”.

The man’s response to HMRC was: “Who did I miss out?”
