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

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
