Blunkett’s New Tax Dodge

The January 31 tax deadline is coming, and so therefore is David Blunkett’s tax bill for his £3million Belgravia grace and favour, benefit-in-kind pad. A pad in which he has lived throughout two resignations and is still occupying today. He will have to declare the rentable value as a benefit in kind. £3m Belgravia pads rent for circa £150,000 to £200,000 per year. That equates to a tax bill for £60,000 to £80,000 a year.

It gets worse, he had a council tax fiddle going that would make even Prescott blush, he claims his Sheffield home is his main residence and therefore somehow got the taxpayer to pick up the tab on his council tax for the Belgravia mansion, which is obviously more expensive than the Sheffield home. What the hell is he still doing living on our backs? He is a lying, fast-tracking, ticket fiddling, scrounging, twice disgraced ex-minister leeching us dry. As a minister he wanted to get people off incapacity benefit if they could work. So Guido feels happy to say, bugger off Blunkett.

I promised to remind Blunkett about this last March, and Guido keeps his promises*

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
