    The stench of corruption in racing grows ever greater as a BBC1 documentary called "Hustle" last night uncovered a network of shady dealings.

    Horse theft, the running of a ringer and a full-blown betting scam designed to defraud the public all came to light.  I bet Alan Ridley was making copious notes and for once I couldn’t blame him.

    The BHB really do have to act this time.

    Disgustedly,

    Mike

    Hi gang

    I am not joking this stuff really turns me on.  And by the way Terry gets paid for doing "Children in need".

    now, let’s be clear:  

    terry has never asked to be paid.

    the bbc has volunteered him a "never remotely commercial" sum of around £9,000 for a seven hour show.

    its not a fee; its an honorarium….

    ….which, unless the taxman can make him out to be an employee or an office-holder, could have the happy consequence of making it non-taxable in his hands.  😉

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><br>Elected LMC members give their time voluntarily and are not employed under contracts of employment.

    However, because of the way LMCs are set up Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) considers that elected committee members are office holders.

    <br>The strict legal position is that payments to office holders by LMCs are taxable as employment income.<br><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<,

    <br>Bad enough that she kicked my ass all through Cheltenham – if Mrs Column’s 80-1 ante-post bet on Germany comes off I may as well give up forever. :biggrin:
