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)?

    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

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
