Tax reform news: pick your own post

If you are generally a supporter of the government, read Version A. If not, read Version B.

Version A
In excellent news that the government is taking cracking down on tax seriously, the government has appointed a heavy-weight team of tax experts to review the case for introducing a General Anti-Avoidance Rule (GAAR). The selection of legal, judicial and tax experts means the case for a GAAR will receive expert scrutiny and make it very hard for the government to reject any recommendations for action.

Version B
In appalling news that shows how the government has sold out to rich tax-dodgers, the government has hand-picked people from the heart of the current system to review the case for introducing a General Anti-Avoidance Rule (GAAR). The selection of people who advise multinationals on how to minimise the amount of tax they pay means the case for GAAR will get quietly buried.
