A message for rich tax-avoiders from The Last Leg

After Wossy said his piece about tax dodgers, Alex Brooker asked, "Are we not going to talk about that jacket?"

After Wossy said his piece about tax dodgers, Alex Brooker asked, “Are we not going to talk about that jacket?”

This is preaching to the converted (obviously) because Vox Political readers all pay their taxes, even those few of you who are actually rich, as currently defined in our society. Right?

It is therefore with a sense of sharing that VP is posting the “Rich people – pay your tax!” rant by Adam Hills (with Alex Brooker, Josh Widdicombe and Jonathan Ross) from last night’s Last Leg.

Please – if you know a rich person and suspect they are avoiding paying their full whack of tax – share this article with them. Ask if they or their family use any of the tax-supported services mentioned in the piece.

Ask them if they want to be followed around by the phrase “Do your bit – don’t be a d*ck!” for the rest of their natural lives.

Here’s the clip:

Sadly it seems the team at The Last Leg has not uploaded the equally excellent comments by David Mitchell (he said that legal loopholes allowing tax avoidance meant the government was “taxing conscience” – the more of a conscience you have, the more you pay – and that isn’t right: “We’re discouraging people from having a conscience by taxing it, & that is f***ing bonkers!”) but it is to be hoped that someone else has recorded them and will share them.

The full episode is (of course) well worth watching and may be seen here.

The message is clear for tax dodgers of any kind: We won’t pay for you any more.

      What about the TAX Free EU handouts to all those Landed Lords in the House?

      More than a third of Britain’s land is still in the hands of a tiny group of aristocrats, according to the most extensive ownership survey in nearly 140 years.
      In a shock to those who believed the landed gentry were a dying breed, blue-blooded owners still control vast swathes of the country within their inherited estates.
      A group of 36,000 individuals – only 0.6 per cent of the population – own 50 per cent of rural land

      Revealed: how we pay our richest landowners millions in subsidies
      Were David Cameron to announce tomorrow that some of the wealthiest landowners in the country would receive millions in subsidies from the taxpayer, there would be predictable outrage. Yet, in the form of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), such a programme already exists. The average British household contributes £245 a year to the CAP, most of which, a New Statesman investigation has found, is handed to the wealthiest landowners. Originally established with the intention of supporting small farmers and reducing Europe’s reliance on food imports, the CAP, which accounts for 43 per cent (€55bn) of the EU budget, has become a slush fund for assorted dukes, earls and princes.
      I can assure anybody who is interested that the Tory bandits will never, ever leave the EU; any who try will end up falling off of an Roof.
