Reverend Blair - a two-faced hypocrite
Q. Who said, in 1994, “We must tackle abuse of the tax system. For those who can employ the right accountants, the tax system is a haven of scams, perks,City deals and profits...We should not make our tax rules a playground for revenue avoiders who pay little or nothing while others pay more than their share.”
A. Why none other than our former PM - The Reverend Blair.
Why are we not shocked? Why is the news that his company paid just £315,000 tax on income of more than £12m more grist to the mill?
Few will be surprised at just how sleazy he and his organisations have become. The deadlock continues in the Middle East. Many lives have been lost. Livelihoods ruined and the running sore fans the flames of religious hatred throughout the region. And while that appalling situation prevails, the Middle East peace envoy rakes in the cash.
The accounts showed Blair had £8m worth of ‘administrative expenses.’
Yeah right. Just the sort of wheeze devised by a ‘revenue avoider’.
Remember Al Capone? The feds finally got him - for tax evasion.
