Headline of the week comes from
The story: 'HM Revenue & Customs has issued a reminder about this month's change to the 2008/09 basic personal income tax allowance'.
The header: 'Windfall tax for employees'.

(I've dropped a line to the story's author, just in case – *cough* – it's a genuine mistake.)
