Even the FT says it is time for the domicile rule to go

In an editorial this morning the FT says:

More than two centuries after the introduction of income tax by Mr Pitt, his successors should end the egregious situation where the wealthiest enjoy the privileges of UK residency without paying their fair dues to the exchequer. The anomaly of non-dom status cannot be defended. It should be scrapped.

There's not a lot to add to that.
