The call for Courageous politicians makes it’s television debut

Posted on

I was on Nick Robinson's programme on tax and spending last night.

This second episode was better than than the first part of the mini-series, but not by much.

But it did by chance let me make my first reference to the need for Courageous politicians who will tackle tax avoidance and evasion on screen.

Watch here, starting at 47.20.

We recorded for 90 minutes when the programme was meant to be mainly about tax avoidance. Odd that this was the only clip to make it to a programme where in the end only a few minutes were dedicated to the subject.

Pleasing that they went on to show that Lamont and Darling accurately fitted my description of cowardly politicians when it came to tax.
