George Osborne Demands Hooker Goes Down
Chancellor is Super-Pimp

George Osborne’s Treasury has wreaked revenge on high-earning hookers after a £1,000-a-night tart was jailed over a £120,000 tax fraud. Donna Asutaits will go down for 16 months after being found guilty of evading taxes over a two year period in which she earned over £300,000. UKuncut will be happy…

Osborne is responsible for the HMRC cracking down on high-earning tax evaders, demanding that high-class call girls pay a whopping 45% of their earnings, making him the harshest and most lucrative pimp in Britain. Guido can’t imagine how George ever got involved in such a sordid business

    How does putting her in prison for 16 months fit with the requirement that she pays back £120K?

    Maybe I’m being especially thick, but wouldn’t it be better to let her carry on working so she can, you know, pay the outstanding tax bill, plus interest?

    One swallow does not make a summer.

    Is there any evidence at all that there is a policy to “wreaked revenge on high-earning hookers”.

    It seems to me that she caught the attention of the police because she seemed to be involved in other dodgy business like money laundering and possible mortgage fraud. And instead of wasting all that police time and effort when they discovered that might not be the case, they did her for the tax avoidance.

    But I imagine the intern with the photoshop had fun this afternoon, so its probably all for the best.

However as both parties are people of means this may not deter although the claimant in any action could face equal reputational damage as the defendant

    The other topic Lords reform,who the hell is bothered as to what the mainly geriatric bunch in the other place get up to.
    Certainly not the general public,they are concerned about who of this bunch of political no marks in it for theirselves and their own fortunes can get us out of this Liebour/Libor shitestorm we are currently in.
    Will it be U turn Cammoron/Union Ed/Cleggover I don’t think so.
    What it could be though is if we the people as a whole said loud and clear we have now had enough and we want change.
    I won’t catalogue change because most people on this site will know what changes need to be made.

    It’s my way , or the highway !

    bye bye coalition !

    Bill Killed vol 1
    I wasnt sure what Labour were bristleing with tonight , pride at punative puncture , or tenacity at time tease . By the time NN had arrived I think I had learned all I need to know . I respect Connor Burns stepping down but Angie Bray …. sacked , not much a coalition promise , i dont recall any Lib dem being sacked when AV (£23mn cost) didnt get enough votes . As far as I understand major constitutional bills , sacking a PPS stinks and i would interested to know how this occured , or certainly consider it ill judged enough to get Angie re in stated .
    David laws twisted matters , a straight answer form the lib dems would be helpful , the coalition agreement in script , says consultation , not legislation , which makes Angies sacking all the more henious . If the coalition agreement does say “consultation” everyone of the rebels and abstainers should not be in fear of anything , other than further discussion .
    I appreciate Labour have got a socialist foot up the Liberals backside , despite repeated questions , but had the program motion been agreed then a great deal of parliaments time could have been tied up , alas somthing Labour did not give during Lisbon , which is worth remembering .

    Given that plenty of prior warning was given on the launching of this bill , and its disrespect , it is curious to find key people now making it known they want it as launched , and not the more thoughtful aspects that were floating around that could have staved off so many wounds by the time the tellers were counting .
    So 400 odd mps want this portent back to savedgery legislation , I suppose the whipping will hide many weaker wills who wre not sure , and the pro speakers I managed to hear , seemed so lacking in alternate view , the bill was dying quite early on .

    The rebels have secured a position (rightly) that this bill was so impoverished as to be troubled , however we now have a wound that may not heal , and I would be wise in considering exactly how much of a error this may or may not be . 400 odd mps want to be rid of the house of Lords , not a rethink , not a consultation , but rid without a shred of evidence that it does not do a good job in many of its current ways and hsitorical experinece . 400 od mps have voted for vandalism of somthing they do not think worthy , despite much contaveneing evidence .

    The HOC cannot legislate against a revising chambers constitutional position , unless a revising chamber is allowed to consider the HOC position in the same manner . This betrayal cannot be hid under the guise of modernisation , before Nick Clegg began his Bill , he should have considered why the balance works and that what he was proposing (the gov) , was a more akin to a cull of native balance to make way for the species Nick favours , ie elected .

    I can think of numerous bad goverments through elections , but the lords in the way it works , is a very useful check on such things . I dont know if it works in Lesthoto , but does in Westminster and much better than any elected revising chamber you might name . The most astonishing figure was how Tony Blair used the Lords appointing no less than 312 , in his time causing much of the problems we have , which i hope wasnt intentional .

    Death loans : I agree do help , mainly in alievaiting the selling of houses in such manners as the system works now , although i would think the possibilities of elements within any package may need a proper footing , so that certain costs are always known . The saver aspect is interesting , although i have long wondered why some sort of basic pot has never been considered , that could not be used in general expenditure , could supply a top up for nursing care . Again though we are back at care homes making transparent accounts and reasonable profit ie cost aspect to work to make pot work .
    I am not sure what sort of long term pension/care provison product could be devised , but it looks to me as though it would have to be compulsory and that no doubt means thinking about NI again . The problem to me is one of cost increase for the proper service to be good , vs no revenue specially to provide for it . Its more difficult than I first thought , I dont think we want gaps so to me it has to be a general pot , but then that doesnt help those who are able to make there own plan and go private , without call upon the tax payer .

    All my initial pleasure that we may have a new and sound model for everything , has drained away , as the blip on a computer that we all assumed as proof , by the brainy lot at CERN , may not be as good a blip as we first thought and is being contested by some Americans .

    Indeed I have been trying to get my head around it , and I wonder if we havent been mislabelling some things for a long time , since the first smoke chamber swirls were photographed . The fact that we seem to have sub particles is difficult enough as that means , somthing has to be a building block or more likely its co existence .

    I mean how do you explain chemistry now , if laws of thermodynamics arnt quite as sound as we thought , as it doesnt completely account/balance in subatomic world …..

    When Mr la Kahli eats his hat , it will be one of best Horizon efforts ever .Right now seems far more uncomplete to me than when blip was first shown .

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Music Historian Service says:

    As Guido points out in the Twitter feed, it is the Golden Anniversary of the telecommunications satellite– the first of its kind inspired this piece of music, which was released shortly thereafter:

    It was, well over a year before the Beatles, the first British release to top the US charts. It was so successful that the producer, Joe Meek, was sued for copyright infringement by a French composer who had written the similar-sounding Theme From Austerlitz, a 1960 French film. Joe Meek died a few years later, as the second part of a murder-suicide, stemming from a drug-induced paranoia resulting from the fact that his royalties from Telstar were tied up pending the outcome of the lawsuit.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
