Bunhill: Sorrow over tax office

The Independent Online
LOCAL business people in Brecon are having a good cackle over a circular being sent to them by the Inland Revenue Staff Federation. The tax men and women are asking the support of local businesses to save the Revenue's offices at Brecon and Pontypridd, which are to be closed, it was announced last month. Their ginger group Sorrow (Save Our Rural Revenue Offices of Wales) are fighting the redeployment to Merthyr Tydfil and Llanishen, Cardiff. It doesn't seem to have occurred to Sorrow that the further away the taxpersons are located, the happier local entrepreneurs will be.

Sorrow's doughty slogan is 'You may not need us today - but what about tomorrow]'. Hmmmmm.
