At last, this is a breath of fresh air...

Emma Thompson and her actor husband Greg Wise have said that they will refuse to pay ‘a penny more tax’ until those involved in the HSBC scandal are imprisoned.
In an interview with the Evening Standard, Wise said that the pair will go to prison if necessary.

 “I want to stop paying tax, until everyone pays tax,” said Wise.
“I have actively loved paying tax, because I am a profound f**king socialist and I believe we are all in it together.
“But I am disgusted with HMRC. I am disgusted with HSBC. And I’m not paying a penny more until those evil b**tards go to prison.
“Em’s on board. She agrees. We’re going to get a load of us together. A movement.
“They can’t send everyone to prison. But we’ll go to prison if necessary. I mean it. It’s going to be like 1848 all over again.”

Last week it was revealed through leaked documents that the bank had helped some of its clients move money out of the UK in order to avoid paying tax.
Since then, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs has come under fire for its lack of action in investigating the scandal.
Wise went on to express his disappointment in the Labour Party and the coalition.
“I’m in absolute despair at all of them,” he added.
“I liked Tony before he made his mistakes. I cannot forgive him and the party, and the country. I was one of the 2 million out there, marching. Made f**k-all difference. There is no such thing as democracy.
“Whether it’s someone being hassled in the street to HSBC getting away with this. I’m the least violent man you’ve ever met, but I will plough into fights in the street to stop someone being set upon. Days afterwards I’m a mess because I hate violence. But I cannot see injustice.
“Yes, I’ve got my basic north London leftwing woolly ideas about what’s going on. [Companies like] HSBC haven’t even been slapped on the wrist [because of this] beautiful grey area between avoidance and evasion. It’s iniquitous. We need to do something – come on!”
