So a comedian works hard, is successful, earns a fair bit of money from it, and then puts that money in a vehicle that significantly and legally reduces their tax bill. You'd expect the usual lefty UK Uncut outrage and envy of someone who has done far better in life than they have, but you wouldn't expect the fucking Prime Minister to stick his oar in would you? This is the guy who is meant to run the country - we've got a recession on at home and the Euro is imploding abroad and yet Cameron, who is currently at the G20 in Mexico, not only has the time to comment and make judgement on someone's tax affairs, but bases that judgement on something that he's read in the Times. You utter fuckwit Cameron. And don't try and lecture me on the morality of taxation when the little I can legally get away with paying over to HMRC gets spunked up the wall on EU membership, swathes of useless public sector workers and their fucking final salary pensions, and foreign aid to countries with nuclear weapons, space programmes, and/or hate us so much that they would quite happily see us wiped off the map.
A more reasoned view is that this is a legal issue and not a moral one. Please tell me how much tax someone who earns £1M in a year should morally pay. The answer is that it's impossible as morality is subjective, so if you asked a hundred people how much of this should be paid in tax, expect a hundred different answers anywhere between zero and £1M. This is why we have tax law which will dictate how much someone should pay depending on their circumstances, and in this example could legally be zero. This is one reason why Cameron should have kept his gob shut, another being that given that he has personally lit the torches and sharpened the pitchforks, Carr has no chance against HMRC and justice will be seen to be done rather actually be done.
