Red Ken. Hero?
(Guest post from Gaius)
In praise of Ken Livingstone (yes, really)
Ken Livingstone might be on the demented fringe of the loony left but he's no moron when it comes to his own tax affairs and paying as little tax as possible. With the release of his tax details it appears red Ken has done everything legally possible to minimise his own personal tax liability. London's mayoral candidate is clearly a tax avoider, which I must make clear is perfectly legal and above board, it simply means arranging your affairs within the law to minimise your liability.
In fact Ken should be praised for his avoidance, after all the govt will only waste his money in exactly the same way that they do with everyone else's by spending it on white elephant high speed rail links, illegal wars and the mass murder of innocent foreigners and a "big brother" surveillance state right out of George Orwell's 1984. So, well done Ken.
However, all is not well in the in the la-la land of Kens loony left stupidity. Ken has actively railed against tax avoidance, this rank hypocrisy is typical of the socialist mindset whereby tax is only for the little people and not their rightful masters.
But the little people are starting to wake up, The LabourUncut blog has already mentioned that 31% of Labour supporters will not be voting for the tax avoiding hypocrite. After all, you can't fool all of the people all of the time.
The day of reckoning is getting closer and closer for all the two-faced sanctimonious shysters.
