Oh, I love that, Nicholas! I would have loved to have read the letter they were responding to though. From the quotations, it looks like it was an absolute corker!


lololol that was most entertaining! see? i wish i was british... i would spend all my time writing letters to the editor


Bloody brilliant. I imagine a few chuckles were had over the composition of that dismissive-missive ;)


I would have loved to have been in the room while they were composing this "reply". I too have penned a few of these however did not have the nerve to send them out - they were more for my own amusement and stress relief. I always like to end my day with a good laugh, thanks so much for the hearty chuckle!

ahahahaha! Do you think it's a real letter? Oh my God! I think I'm going to send this to my accountant.

Hey, there's a little present over at my blog for you!

Absolutely brilliant :)


The other day the Taxman sent me a request for £300+ for a shortfall in National Insurance for 2005/6. The letter also said that if I paid it, and had been written to by mistake, I wouldn't get refunded...

So I found my P60 end of year tax report for that year, called them up, and the guy told me not to worry about it, that they'd sort it out eventually... It really instils confidence in the tax system, doesn't it?
