Beautiful. Don't skip the ending.
The Intruders crash Dave Hartnett's retirement dinner.
HMRC boss Dave Hartnett is the man responsible for cutting dodgy deals with Vodafone, Goldman Sachs and other large corporations that have cost the UK taxpayer billions in lost revenue. When we discovered that he was making his retirement speech at an elite tax avoidance conference, we couldn't resist popping in. We donned our best Goldman and Vodafone costumes, bought some flowers and knocked up a fake award.
They crashed Hartnett in 2011 at the Corporate Tax Conference.
Dave Hartnett, head of HMRC, has spent the last few years shaking hands on sweetheart deals with multinational corporations. Vodafone were let off upwards of £6bn in tax, Goldman Sachs were let off over £25m in tax. By pure chance, Dave Hartnett also happens to be Whitehall's most wined and dined civil servant, accepting expensive dinners and drinks from companies such as KPMG, Ernst and Young, PWC and, of course, Goldman Sachs.
On 9th November Dave Hartnett was delivering the keynote speech at the Corporate Tax Conference, the biggest annual gathering of everyone who's anyone in corporate tax.
