Print HTML Former HMRC boss Dave Hartnett was in the middle of a speech at a gala dinner on Thursday when a group of black-tie clad protesters walked in.

HMRC was cleared of the charges by the National Audit Office, but was warned over suspicious relationships with companies. As they were ejected from the dinner, one diner was heard saying he'd "set the dogs on them". › Why David Leigh's broadband tax plan is bonkers Protesters posed as members of Goldman Sachs.
