Tax Day Tomorrow Mr Blunkett, Don’t Forget

You know how forgetful David Blunkett is with forms, forgetting he had fast-tracked his mistress’ visa application for her nanny forinstance.

Well tomorrow his tax return will have to be in, and just in case he suffers from amnesia again, let Guido remind the old expense fiddler, he will have to declare the benefit in kind of living in a free, grace and favour, £3m Belgravia mansion courtesy of Tony. By Guido’s calculation he has had the benefit of that following two resignations, the taxable benefit (he has been living rent free at the taxpayers expense) would be in the region of £60,000 to £80,000 a year and Blunkett has been unable to find somewhere to live for all that time. On Sunday he told Andrew Marr, “you know how it is with surveyors and solicitors”. No, Guido doesn’t. It takes a couple of months. But why rush when the taxpayer is keeping you in some style? With the money left over from his column in The Sun after paying his tax bill he should be able to find somewhere. Blunkett can download the form here.
