Riding cash in hand........

was always going to be a problem. Apparently he didn't finish a roofing job for Biaggi after being paid cash and got a slap in the Donington pits! All the best though Marco - hope you get this straightened out asap.

Sad he's got caught. Being on PAYE I see a massive percentage of my hard earned going off to be squandered on not alot. Never minded paying my fair share of tax until we had ten years of Brown and now these jokers!

Them & us.......

Talented rider,pity he wasn't as talented at paying his fair share of taxes like the `little people' have to.

NO, it won;t be nice when you see a BIG FAT CHEQUE with lots of naught's on the end suddenly shrink when the TAX MAN comes calling but it's the same for million's of lesser mortal's who work hard all week in a mind numbing,senseless job, in some cases,to fetch in no more than £280 to look after a family.

These celeb's should thank GOD,they're doing a job they love and being well paid for it.......
