Richard (from Taxation) suggests that Four Funerals and a Wedding:
"...will be a laugh a minute slapstick comedy based in a fictional Exchequer department in the swinging (as in swinging from one idea to the next) tax capital of the world, London.Inspired!
The plot will be based around politicians and Treasury officials who seek to outdo each other with ever more outlandish tax plans, which then require ever more outlandish schemes to sort out the fun-filled chaos that results.
Remember that zero per cent corporation tax band? Remember how we laughed?These are just a few that come to mind and the final top four will be chosen from the crazy laughter they elicit from my audience response group.
The four funerals?
That will be tax plans and reliefs that have been buried over the years: taper relief, zero per cent corporation tax, the ten per cent band abolition, higher rate relief on pension premiums for the wealthy.
That’ll involve the joyful union of Inland Revenue and HM Customs & Excise."
