Can't afford a stamp!!

I've just done my beer duty return.

HMRC have stopped sending prepaid envelopes - I've got to put a stamp on now. You'd have thought after putting up beer duty soooo much they'd be able to afford to keep up the prepaid envelopes. Just lets say my permitted blog vocabulary does not do justice to my feelings.

Incidentally - Customs have the power to enter property without a warrant. I don't believe the Inland Revenue used to have that power. The departments are now combined. Do you think HMRC have given up their previous rights or do you think HMRC now have the ability to enter without a warrant just for ordinary tax issues now??? I think that was quite a clever move by the Revenue.
