The arrangement does indeed look like tax avoidance
And she appears to be investing in the law being changed to prevent such avoidance in future
So there’s a past mistake, by the look of it
And a willingness to invest in reform now
Is that hypocrisy or a wish to make amends? It looks like the second to me.
And remember, in 2002 almost everyone would have told her to do this and there was no counter-narrative from people like me.
And I too have changed my mind on issues since then. Wise people do. That’s not hypocrisy. That is wisdom
Hmm. At the least a desire to make amends would be accompanied by an expression of regret (that Catholic confession thing: you’ve got to admit you did wrong as well as make amends). And, presumably, pay back the tax dodged.
Which leaves the interesting question. When is Ritchie going to pay back the tax he has dodged?
