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.
