Paddick’s Return Ken in Meltdown

The LibDem candidate isn’t doing too badly for himself:

2010/2011
Police pension: £63,397
Other earnings: £13,355
Total income received: £76,804
Total on which tax is due: £70,329
Total tax due (and paid): £14,534

2009/2010
Police pension: £63,397
Other earnings: £10,437
Total income received: £73,843
Total on which tax is due: £67,443
Total tax due (and paid): £18,292

2008/2009
Police pension: £63,397
Other earnings: £130,102
Total income received: £193,499
Total on which tax is due: £188,470
Total tax due (and paid): £67,867

That £60,000 police pension is rather sweet. Paddick paid 24.7 % of his income in tax last year. Will Ken be higher or lower? 

UPDATE: Ken seems to be having a bit of a meltdown:

“I will lodge the details for the last four years with an independent body or individual, to be published simultaneously when all four main candidates have provided them. I will set out income to my company over the last four years, how much my wife and I received and how much tax was paid. Full household income and tax must be released by all candidates because the question of the overall household income and tax has continuously been the subject.”

It must be that bad…
