Marina Hyde on why UK tax is so untaxing

“The Hong Kong tax code, widely held by tax lawyers to be the most admirably efficient in the world, is 276 pages long. The British tax code, rapidly beginning to look like the most disingenuous in the world, is currently in excess of 17,000 pages.  It has more than trebled in size since 1997.”

They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”

The FT profile a known party animal:

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps.[…]
