Ooooh! Look! Look!

Any suggestion that Britain will have to rescue offshore financial centres would be extremely controversial as tax havens drain the UK economy of an estimated £25bn annually through their role in aggressive tax avoidance and evasion.

There\’s Ritchie\’s number again, the one we\’ve already proven is entirely wrong.

Amazing how people will run with a number that is convenient to their argument even when it has been shown to be an error, isn\’t it?

  1. “even when it has been shown to be an error, isn’t it?”

    You are assuming that journalists at the grauniad are taking any notice of stuff that dones’t fit with their worldview. That’s a ropey assumption at best.

  2. I see Ritchie’s become the Jeremy Vine Show’s resident tax and economics pundit. No wonder Sir Terry Wogan has decided to leave Radio 2!
