Is the Coalition cooking the books? I asked the woman from the Revenue mischievously.
She almost laughed, but taxwomen rarely do mischief or humour. She settled for a gentle "No, no, no", followed by a flow of suffocating tax babble.
Three people whom you would never invite to the pub for a pint have been ringing warning bells. The head of the Revenue Commissioners, the big chief at the Fiscal Advisory Council (FAC) and a member of the Central Bank Commission have, in sharp succession, fired highly unwelcome shots across the Government's bows.
