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

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
