And, as one Twitter commentator put it, that’s “it” with two letters missing at the start of the word: “s” and “h”.
Chancellor George Osborne has evaded answering a series of questions with ITV News, on whether he has personally benefited from offshore funds.
During his visit to visit to the Ocado Customer Fulfilment Centre in Hatfield, when Mr Osborne was asked: “Do you now or will you in the future benefit from any offshore funds?”, he responded by saying the current Government has done more than “any other previous British Government” to ensure “people pay the taxes that are owed”.
He was then asked a second time “are you going to benefit at all?” and again avoided answering the question directly.
The chancellor said: “As I say, all of our interests, as ministers and MPs, are declared in the register in member’s interests and we have made our position very clear.”
