So I see from the Grauniad that Jimmy Carr, unfunnyman and banker-basher has been outed as paying large sums of money into an off-shore scheme to avoid tax. I can scarcely face the irony of a newspaper that is based off-shore to avoid paying tax ragging on a lefty wibbler doing the same thing, while that lefty wibbler bangs on about other people avoiding tax. The thing is, all these tax avoidance schemes are legal. They are morally equivalent to putting money into an ISA, something that I don't think even the Graun has had the hypocrisy to attack. And the reason they exist and are legal is precisely because the laws have closed so many loopholes. Every time they close a loophole, they introduce dozens more ways for tax lawyers to dance angels on the head of a pin. The funniest thing of all was the amoral, unprincipled, dishfaced, bandwagon-jumping twat that is our Prime Minister, standing in judgment of Jimmy Carr's amorality. Do none of these people ever look at themselves in the mirror?
