When the law fails – the tax man gets his man!

Holding politicians to account using the law and procedures, sometimes isn’t enough. They are slippery creatures when ‘at bay’. Naz Ahmed and Denis MacShane come to mind.

Al Capone, the American Mafia boss, was never successfully prosecuted for any of the crimes he committed, murder, extortion and racketeering for example.

What eventually laid Capone low was the tax man!

Patient and persistent investigations eventually resulted in a conviction for irregularities in his tax affairs.

Could this have any resonance here in Rotherham? It certainly may have?
