Our Ken and Tax

Ken Livingstone, who has attacked tax avoiders as “rich b-------” who should “not be allowed to vote”, has allegedly avoided at least £50,000 in tax by having himself paid through a personal company.

Mr Livingstone, who has called for a top tax rate of 80 per cent, has made attacking “the rich” a key part of his campaign. He has criticised tax avoiders, saying: “These rich b------- just don’t get it… No one should be allowed to vote in a British election, let alone sit in Parliament, unless they pay their full share of tax.....Cameron’s problem is too many of his team have become super-rich by exploiting every tax fiddle… [We should] sweep away tax scams and everybody should pay tax at the same rate on earnings and other income.”
