Scrapbook cannot but marvel at the brazen cheek of Lord Ashcroft – who only domiciled himself in the UK for tax purposes in July – in tabling the following parliamentary question:

To Ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they expect citizens to organise their tax affairs in order to maximise tax payable.

Ashcroft spent ten years dodging HMRC having assured William Hague he would pay UK tax upon his elevation to the Lords.

“Maximise tax payable”?

Ashcroft was dragged kicking and screaming into the UK tax system.
