Some interesting reading for those who think benefit fraud is not prevalent enough to be worth pursuing.

The page on prosecutions is an eye opener.

So is the conclusion.

And yes! Equally important is first to hunt down and jail Tax Evaders, and then to remove the loopholes that make legal Tax Avoidance possible, so that Avoiders too may be jailed if they don't stop as soon as the law changes.

Unfortunately, there is no way currently to prosecute anyone taking advantage of a legal loophole.

What is absolurely indefensible is to blame either the rich or the poor exclusively. A thief is a thief, and all need to be dealt with equally, and severely.
