Scrapbook Dodge Tax Questions

Political Scrapbook is gunning on the Beeb’s tax story this morning, going particularly hard on Paxo for apparently channelling his earnings through a service company. It’s an almost identical scheme to the one used by tax-dodger-in-chief Ken Livingstone, only for some reason Scrapbook didn’t mention it back before the election.

How odd…

    Correct me if I’m wrong – but isn’t the issue that Paxman changed his tax status while in the same job (in indication of tax avoidance), while Livingstone changed his tax status having changed his job (i.e. not being Mayor anymore)?

    Do as we say, not as we do peasant.

    I thought the government was meant to be encouraging such small and medium size enterprises?

    Everybody should have tax deducted at source! Individuals should then have to claim tax back from the government….With the current performance of HMRC some hope of rebates.g

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
