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.”

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

 

The FT profile a known party animal:

“One former ally recalls being served glasses with minuscule quantities of wine from a half-empty bottle at the Miliband home: “It was like receiving communion,” he says. On the few occasions Mr Miliband attends a social event, he is usually armed with briefing notes on the guests…”

Quote of the Day

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. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”

Quote of the Day

Sajid Javid to the Union of Jewish Students:

“when I took over at DCMS a lot of people thought I wasn’t the right man for the job.

“What does this banker know about culture?” they asked.

At least I think they said “Banker”…”

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Garry Kasparov:

“If people like Obama and Cameron had been in charge in the 1980s I would still be playing chess for the Soviet Union.”

Quote of the Day

UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn:

“I think Mail online comments are a telling indication of public opinion.”

Quote of the Day

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”[…] Read the rest
