Now that's a novelty - Sir Humphrey must be spinning in his grave

The chancellor is setting up an Office for Tax Simplification to streamline the 11,000 page tax code.
He said Britain had "one of the most complex and opaque tax codes in the world".
And he wanted a "permanent body to push against the forces of complication" and make life easier for firms.
Announcing the new body, Mr Osborne said his "dream" was "that people might actually understand the tax laws which with they actually being asked to comply with"..

Note - the fractured English wasn't me - probably the BBC as he isn't John Prescott
