"Shocked" Osbourne, is the day of reckoning near for tax dodgers? George Osbourne is "shocked" to learn of tax dodging millionaires only paying 10% tax; is George a slow learner, he has been Chancellor of the Exchequor for two years, the top lad in the Governments Treasury, responsible for taxation, the public have been screaming out about this subject since George got the job and only now he is shocked! Is this Armageddon for multi millionaires (like George) and the end of the line for the gravy train, or just this weeks bit of media fodder? Will it be filed away with the other non existant weekly revelations that keep our media on wild goose chases, last week email censorship, previous week privatising roads, or adoption delays, or care homes, or road pricing, or victory in Strasbourg, or riding police horses, or Huhne, or ............!
It's hilarious the way he is pretending to be shocked, does he really think his 'one of the people' act is going to fool anyone? This is Gideon Oliver Osborne (he changed his name to George when he was 13) son of Sir Peter Osborne, 17th Baronet, and heir to the posh wallpaper empire Osborne and Little we are talking about! His family are about as posh as it gets and probably use every tax dodging scam in the book.
