The chancellor was shocked to learn that rich people are paying the correct amount of tax, due to loop holes in the law, and is probably going to speak to his accountant to find out why he didn’t know about these.
Where has George been sticking his head (!) as most of the public are aware that the rich pay very little tax; the Guardian even ran a story as to how top footballers pay as little as 2% tax, so why is this a shock George. It’s not a lot to ask that a chancellor actually understands economics but apparently George is too busy with all his trusts to be bothered about such a trivial fact.
All I can say is that I hope he puts the loop holes on the front of his shop on Wednesday, as they will make a nice target for the pasties.
