A lefty says ‘Do as I say, not as I do’.
An investigation into a tax scandal involving Neil Kinnock’s son Stephen threatens to destroy his glamorous wife’s hopes of becoming Prime Minister of Denmark.
The curse of the Kinnocks has struck again after it emerged that …
…Mr Kinnock junior pays taxes in Switzerland – which has the lowest taxes in Europe – and not in Denmark, where his family home is situated but which has the highest tax rates in the world.
It has saved Mr Kinnock and his wife Helle Thorning-Schmidt, leader of Denmark’s Social Democrats, an estimated £40,000 a year.
Well, okay. I condemn no-one for doing all that is reasonable to limit their exposure to tax.
Mr Kinnock’s wife’s party has called for Denmark’s tax rates to be raised higher to cope with the recession.
Beautiful beautiful Schadenfreude.
But seriously. They already have the highest tax rates in the world, or so it is claimed above, and the Social Democrats want…
…tax rates to be raised higher to cope with the recession.
There’s just no reasoning with someone who has such an ideologically distorted view of economics.
Ask Vince Cable, the socialist in charge of the Business department.
