Because the HMRC are a bunch of lying incompetents who'd sell out the UK's tax laws for a good lunch.
I want the results listed in terms of popularity
What happens when you search for Hoovers in the USA? Do you get a list of vacuum cleaners or people.

A similar argument applies to Time Travel - if it were possible, they'd already have visited.
But I did visit. Next Thursday.

"This should have painted a picture of a sociopathic layabout who is violently opposed to work, totally devoid of intellect and incapable of treating other people with anything but venomous contempt."
I suggest a career in Politics or as a Non Executive Director of a Fortune 500 / FT 100 Company would be suitable.

" they will either start dumping in garbage data in the system as fast as possible just to get it finished or leave the company because they are tired of doing data entry every time they make a phone call, meet with someone, send an email, etc."
Yes, if you make them do it by hand, and especially so if you make them do it more than once. eg. Time sheet and the New Shiny System tm.
You need to ensure that as much of this stuff is automated. Take a look at how your Lawyer manages to bill you in .1 of an hour increments.

Follow the money.
Write to all the advertisers in the paper telling them that you and all your friends will boycott them until they remove the adverts.

Who owns the copyright on a photograph of a London Bus crossing Westminster Bridge in front of the houses of Parliament?
It cannot be invalidated by any subsequent licensing terms.
