So much for the economic liberation of women then

Sunak’s wife’s domicile claim is based on the suggestion that she does not wish to live here in the long term. I’d suggest now is the time for Boris Johnson to help her fulfil that dream. Sunak needs to be sacked, and be free to leave.

It’s also astonishing – well, perhaps not really – that Spud doesn’t manage to mention the inflation which MMT has caused and which must be dealt with.

  1. Pure vitriol because she has what he wants, and will never, ever get: Success and a Finance Minister’s Ear to whisper into.

  2. Reading the pure hate that Murphy now posts fills me with disgust. He’s become an embittered, loathsome individual – textbook fascist, racist scum.

  3. I am sure Mr Murphy claims to have worked as a tax advisor in the past, in which case it would be reasonable to expect him to understand the difference between residence and domicile. He is also an noisy proponent of taxes being paid where the economic activity is based, which would also seem to be at odds with this line of attack

  4. I’m a tolerant fellow. If some hate-filled bigot says “Send them wog bitches back to where they came from” I reserve the right to think him an cunt but I also respect his right to free speech. My particular contempt, however, is reserved for those who entertain these particular racist and misogynist sentiments but try to fudge their expression – such as the Maddy Paddy of the Fens.

  5. Wow – I guess if your politics are ‘right on’ enough it outweighs your evident disadvantages of race, gender and sexuality. Truly one rule for them, one for everyone else. I haven’t posted everything but this covers a wide swathe of a post which if it came from the Daily Mail one can imagine The Spud decrying but I think it’s clear we are dealing with a vicious racist, on top of all his other many flaws.

    Then Covid happened and Sunak spent like almost no Chancellor in history. Having discovered there really was a magic money tree, which quantitative easing turned on, he had the Bank of England create all the money he needed to cover the cost of Covid.

    Although Covid put massive pressure on public services, and increased the cost of supplying them, Sunak refused the money to deliver the services required. From health to education, care, the legal system and so much more all Sunak offered was austerity and pressure on employees.

    Pensioners lost out on the inflation pay rise they were due under existing rules.

    Universal credit was cut even though it was known the cost of living was rising.

    Tax increases were announced that hit those in work and on lower pay hardest, but which did not go near those with wealth at all.

    And as fuel costs escalated because Sunak’s Treasury had failed to understand that reopening after Covid was always going to impose supply chain, cash flow and other disruptions, his rebate offer was too small, and based in the idea of a loan, not a subsidy.

    In the meantime the Bank of England chose to put up interest rates to increase the cost of living, deliberately, as if people were not being punished enough. Sunak must have approved this as he has the right to veto it.

    Come the latest announcements, the failure to take further measures to help those millions now facing unplayable bills revealed a complete ignorance of the despair people face when their costs go up by maybe £3,000 a year and they have no way to find that money.

    And we learned that Brexit, of which he was a strong supporter, really has trashed UK exports when those of every other country were recovering.

    All Sunak thinks important is balancing his books, he has not noticed that by doing so he’s reducing the income of most people in the country – and recession has to follow. That’s the action of a man who does not understand economics, or his job.

    To describe Sunak as a man without the common touch is to be generous: he does not even realise that there is such a thing and that he needs to have it.

    And so I come to his ethics. As his family’s decisions on tax reveal, these prioritise his wealth above the public interest. Faced with a moral choice, what is legal but not ethical is the choice made so long as there is personal gain to be had. For a politician that is staggering.

  6. From what he’s posted in the past years, you’re to be taxed everything, and may possibly keep enough to live on a subsistence diet if your Social Credit is high enough.

  7. fuel costs escalated because Sunak’s Treasury had failed to understand that reopening after Covid was always going to impose supply chain, cash flow and other disruptions

    So nothing to do with anything going on globally, then? What a twit (thanks autocorrect).

  8. Karelian freedom-fighter

    Kevin O’Sullivan from Talkradio frothing from the mouth, apparently Sunak’s wife “chose” to be a non-dom.
    Now she will be paying more tax than the tax law says. If I was her (no reason I couldn’t be a woman this day and age) I’d pack my bags, terminated all the businesses in the UK, no charity no nothing, no cashflows in the UK, bought a fucking island somewhere and told Kevin to fuck off, it’s on your head you twat.

  9. Well if this turns out to be his funeral pyre, she should thank those evil colonialists for the fact that she won’t be thrown onto it.

  10. News is now that she has bowed to the mob and made the “personal” decision to have all her worldwide income taxed in the UK.

    I hope the whingers are proud that they have now deprived the Indian exchequer of hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of pounds over the next few years.

  12. May not work that way. Indians might say we’ll have the tax, thank you, then UK offers a credit against that. Depends how much of that was being booked offshore rather than in India I suspect.

    Indeed. The pitchfork brigade has won. Hasn’t made Spud happy though. The sour bitter cvnt that he is, he’s still going on about it (and getting more rules wrong). He clearly has little more than layman’s understanding of the rules.

  14. Presumably she’d be deemed domiciled soon under the 15 year rule (they married in 2009, don’t know whether she’d moved to England earlier). So yes, she’s given up perhaps a couple of years’ tax exemption because of the baying mob, but not as bad as it might have been.
