He has something to complain about. According to Private Eye the reason he was picked on was probably that he was once at a social evening attended by then-Prime Minister Gordon Brown. He wasn't a friend, but he was a friend of someone who worked as a spin-doctor for the Labour party, and that was enough for his £3.3 million scheme to annoy the now-Prime Minister David Cameron, whilst Tory donor Gary Barlow's £26 million scheme seems to have escaped his notice.
But then, stuff like this does seem to escape Cameron's notice. Michael Ashcroft, who has invested around £10m in the Conservative party, is also a... well, supporter of tax havens, and previous Prime Minister Tony Blair moved his financial organisation's tax date back from 31st May to 31st March in 2010, thus avoiding making an unwanted acquaintance with the 50% tax rate.
They're all in it together.
Where would this blog be without 'I' and 'Private Eye'? I might have to start thinking for myself or something.
