Paying tax | Suez crisis | James Dyson | Welsh language | London’s new concert hall
While heartily endorsing Frances Ryan’s comments (G2, 23 January) on the joy of tax, may I also strengthen her resolve by reminding her that by filling in her tax return she can help those less fortunate than herself without having to do anything silly or exhausting like sit in a bath of baked beans or run a midnight marathon.
