Georgy Porgy Porkie Pie

George Osborne is reported, in the Telegraph, to be "shocked" that rich people employ expensive accountants to avoid paying their share of income tax.

Mr Osborne told The Daily Telegraph: “I was shocked to see that some of the very wealthiest people in the country have organised their tax affairs, and to be fair it’s within the tax laws, so that they were regularly paying virtually no income tax. And I don’t think that’s right."

But of course rich people avoid tax...... that's what they do, that's how they stay rich and that's how they can afford to be above the modest concerns of the other 99%. Mr Osborne is one of them, so it is passing strange that he seems to be the only person in the country who wasn't in on the secret.....  

People drink blood? Eeeeuuuugghh!

However, if Georgie Boy really didn't know that the rich play tax games, then the question has to be: "How did such a fool ever become Chancellor of the Exchequer?
