JK Rowling Says It All

JK Rowling has a very powerful report in today's Daily Record. She spells out exactly why it is no ordinary person's interests to vote Conservative, and why she in particular will never do so.

In passing she tells why she pays taxes as a UK domicile, unlike many Tory contributors and indeed unlike the Tory Vice Chair, Lord Ashcroft. Put simply: taxes pay for the services and benefits we need, and anyone who can afford to pay for the welfare of others who need it, should be happy to pay any fair taxation.

Refreshing and heartening from a rich and influential celebrity who has not forgotten what it's like to live a normal, cash strapped, life. Good on her, I say.
