You're probably right that the rich get away with it more than the rest of us but look at the advantages they have. You live in Harlow if you were mega rich you could keep your home there, another in the Bahamas, another in South Africa, one or two in America etc. and then argue about where you live and who should tax your money. Look at the Phoney Pharoah - Al Fayed - he no longer resides in Britain for tax purposes but can take court action in Scotland because he has a residence there. I think its called having your cake and eating it. You and I can't do that but these buggers apparently can.
