This is rather like the government bleating when they bale out the banks with public money only to have them take it as a bonuses. Or the MPs themselves fiddling their expenses en mass. Prisons would be full if people got jailed for greed. We have already established that you cannot expect moral behaviour from people. Without controls people do not do the right thing, thats what we have laws for. I won't pay more tax than I have to, nor will you, morality doesn't come into it. If they make it possible to arrange your affairs in such a way that you legally pay less tax, you would be a fool not to take advantage. Change the laws, make the tax system fairer and more transparent then jail those who cheat, no more cozy deals to just pay some tax later.
