Brown-Bankrolling Non-Dom Peer Considers Quitting Over Tax

Non-domiciled Lord Paul of Marylebone, donated over £355,000 to Labour and £45,000 directly into Gordon’s 2007 leadership campaign. Despite his huge wealth he still found it appropriate to claim £38,000 from the taxpayers in Lord’s accommodation expenses despite, by his own admission, having never spent a night in the property.  He is reportedly set to quit the House of Lords, not over his expense claims, but to avoid tax.

Lord Paul has been Brown’s very own non-dom donor and has been repaid handsomely by Labour with a peerage, membership of the Privy Council and until his recent expenses scandal was the Deputy Leader of the House of Lords. So close is Lord Paul to Gordon that he was willing to personally bankroll the autumn election that never happened in 2007. Paul said “All I know is that if there is an election and the money is wanted, whatever I can pay I will. I am a believer in Gordon Brown and his leadership, and I think he’s the best person in the country.” Hence Guido’s amusement today to hear that Paul is ready to jump ship.  He is considering whether to give up his seat in the Lords to avoid having to pay tax in the UK. Which shows where his priorities really lay…

Labour has attacked Lord Ashcroft while turning a blind eye to the activities of one of their biggest donors. Lord Paul has refused to pay tax in this country yet is greeted with open arms by the Labour leadership desperate to get their grubby fingers on some of his controversially raised fortune.  Paul is ranked the 88th richest man, living, in the UK.  This nom-dom, expenses fiddling, conglomerate owning peer has some interesting skeletons in his cupboard to which Guido will be returning. How he amassed his fortune will turn the stomachs of many Labour supporters…

      Now they give it up because it’s going to cost. Why take it in the first palce?

        Delusions of grandeur and influence. When they discover that there isn’t that much influence, that the grandeur is only surface dressing, and that most House of Lords responsibilities are actually quite boring (though very necessary), they look for the door marked ‘exit’. The words ‘service’ and ‘duty’ don’t mean much to some people.

          Dismantling some of the state is a very good idea, because there’s so much of it that we can’t afford it. We can’t afford it to the tune of £178 billion this year, about the same next year, and so on. Even Labour admit that – and it did occur on their watch.

          The capitalist market stance is all that will get us out of this hole – you can’t raise tax from the public sector, you can only raise it from the private sector, and spend it on the public sector. Ergo, the need to stimulate the private sector as part of the cure for the nation’s current economic woes.

          “Though Powell referred to the speech as “the Birmingham speech”, it is otherwise known as the “Rivers of Blood” speech, a title derived from its allusion to a line from Virgil’s Aeneid. The phrase “rivers of blood” does not appear in the speech.”

That tragic and intractable phenomenon which we watch with horror on the other side of the Atlantic but which there is interwoven with the history and existence of the States itself, is coming upon us here by our own volition and our own neglect. Indeed, it has all but come. In numerical terms, it will be of American proportions long before the end of the century. Only resolute and urgent action will avert it even now. Whether there will be the public will to demand and obtain that action, I do not know. All I know is that to see, and not to speak, would be the great betrayal.

He should have stood by his own moral compass,and not done the interview.How many people have suffered a similar tragedy…and kept their silence,dignity and grief to themselves?

        On a side note..I don’t believe that this strategy is to gain sympathy from floating voters…I believe it is to strengthen the core Labour voter…as Balls,and perhaps Campbell, want to do..knowing that to shore up that vote is his only chance.
