Evan loves tax

The BBC's Evan Davis has a series of programmes at 9am each morning on Radio 4 this week in which he explores our vexed relationship with tax.

I caught part of yesterday's episode during which Evan interviewed:

John Whiting twice - once in his capacity as Technical Director at CIOT (and an ex PwC partner giving tax advice) and later as "interim head" of the new Office for Tax Simplification.

Dave Hartnett (before last week's media frenzy) - who explained his distinction between tax avoidance and aggressive (and implicitly unacceptable) tax avoidance - which results in HMRC petitioning Government to change the rules.

Lord Howe and Lord Lamont - two ex-Chancellors

Each episode is available on BBC iplayer for a few more days if you care to listen.
