Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Hands up if you’ve ever held money in an ISA? For those unfamiliar with UK financial products, an ISA is an Individual Savings Account - tax free. They’ve been rendered largely moot after George Osborne.

My point is, if you’ve ever had one then the fact of the matter is that you’ve avoided tax.

There’s a lot of anger directed at the convoluted financial machinations of multinational corporations. While, despite popular misconception, there is no legal requirement for a company to maximise shareholder value.

Thankfully that appears to be changing.
