UKIP Call on HMRC to Investigate Hodge the Dodge

UKIP economic spokesman Godfrey Bloom has gone after Margaret Hodge, demanding that HMRC “investigate unanswered questions from C4 News, Sky News and Guido Fawkes about her ‘knowledge’ of the tax affairs of her family trust”:

“It beggars belief that Hodge stated that her family company paid ‘every penny’ of the tax it owed although later she admitted that did not know how much tax it actually paid. Yet, this woman is chairman of the House of Commons Public Affairs Committee. Hodge comes in at No 15 on the Times’ Politicians Rich List, with a mere £18m tied up on the family business, which is in a family trust so there is no inheritance tax to pay.  One rule them and one for the rest of the plebs?  I call on HMRC to investigate.”

Always one to help expose tax hypocrisy, here are a few questions HMRC should ask:

  • Why Hodge claimed that “I am a tiny, tiny, tiny shareholder” in Stemcor when her direct shareholding is worth £1.8 million.
  • Why Hodge holds several million pounds more worth of Stemcor shareholdings in trusts.
  • For what purpose Hodge holds these shareholdings in trusts other than to reduce the risk of a future tax liability.

As Hodge the Dodge said herself last week, “I think what we are going to have to do is order somebody to come who can give us answers to the questions…”

    My understanding is that her tax arrangements are legal hence there is no case to answer.

    My problem is her ‘holier than thou’ approach to tax planning when in truth she is ‘dirtier than thou’.

    Her manner of presenting this information – now that’s a different thing altogether. definitely disingenuous and she is everything I disrespect about politicians all wrapped up in one body.

    Which idiot would choose to pay more tax? I have no problem with intelligent efforts to avoid giving politicians more money extracted from taxpayers by menaces to waste on subsidised restaurants & bars for politicians, crazy foreign aid, energy, state funded banking * mortgage schemes and other nonsense. That list would go on for a very long time.

Tax harmonisation is the next big one on the list, this is why all the noise is being made now about those nasty Googles and Amazons of this world. Talking of which I wonder if Virgin or WPP or BP or Tesco’s have tax policies in place allowing to keep more of their profits, I also wonder if Hodge and the PAC would like to interrogate people like Branson at her festering inquisition, wouldn’t have thought so

    Many global companies are being attacked for their failure to pay much or any UK tax despite substantial trading operations in this country. Whilst it’s shocking how little they are contributing to the country they are, in most cases, operating within the law and the real blame lies with HMRC which seems to have gone native. I mean how can Starbucks justify its continued operations in the UK if it’s allegedly never made a profit for tax purposes here? That’s not real capitalism at work. I have produced a media promotion device which fits to the rear windscreen of a car to broadcast my disgust at HMRC’s apparent capitulation to big global businesses. It’s called the ‘Timid Taxman’ WiperWagger. When you wipe the Timid Taxman waves his white flag of surrender and his speech bubble can be use to display various statements about HMRC’s strategy for taxing global companies.

    HMRC is run by the idiot, Lynn Homer, who helped wreck the Home Office and flooded the UK with immigrants. She should be on any sensible person’s list of public ‘servants’ who should be fired without compensation or pension for being a traitor to her country.

    It wasn’t Cameron who betrayed Britons, who reneged on a commitment to a referendum, it was Brown.

    Cameron’s response was to say never again, and pledge a referendum if further powers were sought by Brussels. That became law.

    The dishonest Lib / Dems who promised an in / out referendum in their manifesto are now saying they didn’t, and are claiming Cameron’s law / commitment as their own.

    Can someone explain to me why BBC and sky are interviewing, or should i say, allowing Muslim supporters of various groups to distance themselves from the acts that happened yesterday. It’s absolutely scandalous! The more this is allowed to continue, the easier it makes for Cameron and the other spineless traitors to carry on as though nothing has happened. Islam is a problem in this country and for Sky (i’m not surprised really by the BBC) to give air-time to these deluded idiots to rant about how Islam is based upon peace and harmony really does make my blood boil. What is happening to this country? I’m fearful of what is to become in the next 10 years.

    Why the hell should Starbucks,or for that matter any other Company need to justify their trading here? If they are operating within the Law then the Lawmakers need to change them if they want to increase the tax take.
    Using the “moral arguement” in an attempt to coerce a change is not going to work.
    The government make the rules & must operate in accord with them just as the companies are doing.Morality is a 2-way thing; it applies to the governors as well as the governed.

    Cinna says:

    At least Starbucks et al are “honest” in not denying that their business in the UK are set up to minimise their tax liability within the current rules.

    For the Hodges of this country to play the “morality” card when doing exactly the same thing themselves it dishonest to say the least.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
