Tommy - My Mum used to love Ken Dodd. I remember her singing one
of his songs which was her favorite, called: "8x10" :D

Remember going to Nashville to the Grand Ole Opry
with my bro Keith & sister in law, Helen, who were
visiting from Kent. She loves Country Music so we
thought that would be a treat for her.
One never know who is going to perform you just
take that chance and we really lucked out, Vince Gill
was the main singer that evening and Bill Anderson
was the Master of Ceremonies. Helen was "Over
the Moon!!" :D

I always felt he deserved a Knighthood for all the years of Laughter and Happiness he created in so many lives.
And if you ever went to any of his performances you always got more than your money's worth and wondered if you were ever going home.

But the Officials had to make Doddy wait a few years till the public forgot that he had been less than honest,
in declaration of his earnings and not paying his Taxes,
he was lucky to escape without a Prison Sentence unlike Lester Piggot.
Knighthoods are not given by Her Majesty if you don't pay your Taxes to her Govt, unless you're a Politician

What is it with these wealthy people that do not like to pay taxes
like us regular individuals? I worked for an Attorney who had wealth
beyond imagination with the asbestosis cases. He owned
apartment complexes, land, even had a golf course built
but HATED paying taxes until it reached the point that the
IRS was threatening to sue him. He was the same with
his " Parking" fines.

The USA IRS has written in stone " Taxes are what we pay for a Civilised Society"
I used this quote, in many of my lectures to schools in my 40 years with HMRC
To change people's attitude that Govts don't take Taxes off you. to spoil your enjoyment in life,
but to provide you and your family with a safe civilised society.

In my experience, many rich people felt they are above the law and regulations of the society they lived in, picking and choosing which rules they followed and obeyed.

History has shown that's when a civilisation/society collapses and Revolution takes hold.

My generation has sadly let things slide for the worse.

I was never part of that because my working class Parents, fought and endured hardships in the war, worked hard to provide for their family and maintain respect for the laws of society.
