Inland Revenue and Customs and Excise abolished!

It is true they are no more!
The shame is they have been replaced with the shiny new HM Revenue & Customs, and of course the powers that the Exciseman alone used to have are now available to the Taxman.


They have merged to save costs. The IR will continue to do IR things, C&E will continue to do C&E things. The IR and C&E will collaborate but then they already did. It's a cost cutting exercise, there's no hidden agenda.

Does anyone have evidence that IR have ever initiated a snap audit on individual/s that has got under UK government establishment's skin? For example, would continued anti-government blogging trigger an investigation of said disgruntled citizen's IR account? Or is this simply paranoia?
