The Independent has reported this morning:
However, Richard Murphy, the director of Tax Research UK, estimates that Sir Philip saved £285m in tax by paying a £1.2bn dividend in 2005 directly to his wife. Mr Murphy said: "I'm not disputing for a moment that Sir Philip Green is a first-rate retailer of cheap fashion... But, with the very greatest of respect to those who appointed him, what do they think this has to do with the appraisal of government spending?"
“Hang on a minute”, I thought. “When did they call me?”
Others have. The Indy hasn’t.
Then I realised “said” know means “wrote on his blog”.
OK. Fair enough!
