David Cameron: Taxes will rise unless we can raid bank accounts

David Cameron

Taxes will have to rise unless officials are given new powers to raid people’s bank accounts, David Cameron has said.

The Treasury select committee warned that allowing HM Revenue and Customs to remove cash from bank accounts without court orders is “very concerning” because of its history of mistakes.

The committee said that taxpayers could suffer “serious detriment” if officials are able, either by mistake or through an “abuse” of power, to take money from people who have done no wrong.

Mr Cameron yesterday claimed that the alternative was to “put up taxes”. He told Sky News: “We have a choice here. If we don’t collect taxes properly and make sure people pay their taxes properly we look at the problems of having to raise tax rates. I don’t want to do that, so I support the changes the Chancellor set out in the Budget which is to really say that not paying your taxes is not acceptable.

“It is very clear that they can only do this if there is a debt of over £1,000, they can only do it if there’s £5,000 or more in the account after this has been completed. The general principle – do we want to pursue every avenue of making people pay their taxes they are meant to pay before we put up taxes, because that’s the alternative – absolutely, yes we do.”

The policy yesterday faced further criticism from chartered accountants, who said that money should only be taken from people’s accounts with their agreement or a court order.

ICAEW, the body representing accountants, said that there is “considerable concern” among its members about the measures, which could be open to “mistakes and misuse”.

HM Revenue

Under the planned new measures, tax officials will have an automatic power to take money from a bank account when the holder has failed to act on four formal warnings requiring payment.

Currently officials can only remove money in this way with the permission of a magistrate or judge.

The Treasury insists that safeguards will ensure that the new power is only used against those who have repeatedly refused to pay their taxes.

But the MPs say in their report: “The ability directly to have access to millions of taxpayers’ bank accounts raises concerns about the risk of fraud and error.

“This policy is highly dependent on HMRC’s ability accurately to determine which taxpayers owe money and what amounts they owe, an ability not always demonstrated in the past. Incorrectly collecting money will result in serious detriment to taxpayers.” The Revenue has faced repeated criticism over the accuracy of its tax records and its handling of sensitive personal data.

  1. Well surprise, surprise. The bail in is gaining momentum.

    A while back, the Holy Spirit asked me, “When taxes go to 90%, do you believe I can still prosper you?”

    “At your saying Lord, if you say so.”

    What is wrong with the world comes down to one thing – the greed for gain, aka love of money, which is the root of every evil. The man and the woman in the garden thought that they would gain something extra other than what they had been given, which was of course everything, and Satan has been selling mankind that bill of goods for nigh on 7000yrs.

    Out of greed for gain comes the great crime of usury, hence why the real criminals gravitate to its incremental gains and the ‘miracle’ of compounding interest, as if God has something to do with it already!

    The divine right of kings dictates that the money belongs to them and that we merely get to use it. Between the ravaging, rapacious royals and their commercial cohorts and cabals, they intend to own it all in the end and turn the world into one giant corporation, to wit, neo-Feudalism.

    We have played their game with their money and now it is time to pay the Piper. Suckers. If you dance with the devil, he calls the tune…and no amount of blaming the Jews and Germans will work as it has been set up this way to achieve one thing, to strip the world of all that it clings to, which is its conception of what connotes wealth and success, or as I tend to put it, suck-cess.

    Knock yourselves out boys, blame the Jews, blame the bankers, blame anyone except your greedy self for being sucked in in the first place.

    And if you want to know the real answers, do NOT confer with flesh an blood, Opinion is antithetic and inimical to Truth, which is not a thing but a person, who is known locally as the Lord Jesus Christ.

    • Wow, Ian…Great comment mate.

      Just a few months ago I would have seen the religious references in your comment & switched off (as I have been conditioned to do!) but this year I read the words of JC for myself & was blown away.
      He spoke about truth in a way I had never heard anyone speak about it before.
      He described the same enemy we are facing today, their agenda & their methods.
      But he also described the weakness in ourselves that acquiesces to tyranny & described sin as a powerful form of slavery which our enemy exploits ruthlessly.
      I had never thought of it that way before but everything he said & did is relevant today.
      In the last few weeks I have accepted Jesus was who he said he was in spite of my conditioning & I feel my life changing in good ways already.
      It has allowed me to open a door to God I did not know was there & it is changing me for the better, I hope & believe.
      To others who are broken hearted to see the evil running rampant in our world & are wanting to know how to fight it, I say read the words of Jesus. Dare you. Double dare you!
      Thanks again Ian.
      Love to all.

      • Welcome home, Brother. The spell the Jesuit Poops are cooking up to counter Christ is devilishly clever. If you listen closely to them, and to other so-called leaders, they are all beginning to sing from the same song-book. They deny that Jesus is the only Begotten Son of God, who became manifest as a man, the Word made flesh. They do this subtly by selling the lie that he was a prophet, a man, a small ‘s’ son of God, and that he did lay down his life but that he transcended ordinary human concerns to become a martyr, and they venerate him along with all those saints who have gone before and of course, the queen of heaven, Mary.

        Now by denying that Jesus was a complete(d) work of grace, and making of him a man who “made it” – the hope or image thus portrayed and followed is of human attainment and will. It also denies that like he, we came down from heaven out of God into our earth suit and out of our mother’s womb. By denying the divine Seed of our own Genesis, for we were created in God as GOOD WORKS or GRACE WORKS before ever there is was, and God had, as it were, a Lamb slain from BEFORE the foundations of the worlds…we deny and become separated from our very inner nature..who we really are…and we lose sight of our souls (a Hebraic idiom meaning we become separated from our true identity).

        In the Aramaic Scriptures, Jesus is recorded to have said, “I am the Alap and the Tau, the first and last, the Head and consummation.” Alap means first and also Ox, while Tau means last and Mark – so Jesus is not only the MARK, or HOPE, or IMAGE of our high calling which we are (hopefully) being transformed into from glory to glory, but also the Ox that gets us there! The Greek version is Alpha and Omega. Omega means “great” – which religion says God is Great? Now there is another “mark”, it is the mark or hope or image of the beast.

        One word of warning Brother – the closer that you get to the Truth, the more that you choose to love, the greater shall be the pressure to back off and the enemy will send his agents of confusion as messengers of light – the simple strategy to prevent this is to cleave close to Christ and to learn of Him – just ask Him quietly within to reveal Himself to you as He really is – Light and Love, and in Him there is no darkness nor any contradiction, and if there appears to be any contradiction, it is invariably in our understanding and if we give it to Him, He shall teach and guide us – hold this Truth in your heart and you will not err far from it.

        And call no man “ultimate leader” as we have only One Leader to lead us home, and what is more, He is also behind us goading and guiding us in the right direction. There is only one destination and no escape – resistance is futile – love is ultimately compelling and wins all. I suggest you look up Tentmaker.org before you get side-tracked with issues of judging good and evil, and Vic Alexander’s amazing Aramaic Bible Translation – may God give him the energy and grace to complete what he has begun – and that to all of us. http://www.va.com
