I think I'm beginning to understand where we're going wrong

Who said this?

 “I’m sorry, I’m not a tax specialist.”

Dame Lesley Strathie. No reason why you should recognise that name. Let me explain.

Dame Leslie is the Chief Executive of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs. She is the chief collector of taxes for the United Kingdom. This was her defence when questioned why HMRC let Vodafone off a £6.2 billion bill and agreed that any more money they hide in Luxembourg will be tax-free too.
