They're on good anti-Tory form today too:

Warsi under the cosh.

the Barclays seem like UKIPpers to me. Losing the next election would to them be a price well worth paying to get the Tory party shifted in that direction.

As noted and linked in the first post. Keep up at the back!

The brave libertarians and free marketeers among the Telegraph's commentariat aren't so keen when they're among the losers.

Today's the Day to put the boot into Tony Benn, it seems:

Had his very own kind of tax dodge, it seems.

This story was first reported seven years ago. It's almost as if the Tories need a distraction. Seems that at least part of this article is wrong anyway though.

My accountant suggested this on the death of my wife. I am not sure about the need for paying rent. The "gift with reservation" aspect does not apply in the way it would if a living person gave their children title to their house and continued to live in it. The person leaving part of the house to their children has died, and will not be receiving any benefit. If anything, the children are giving a gift to the surviving parent, rent free accommodation.
In any case this is small beer compared to St Maggie, the great patriot who having spent an entire political career wrapping herself in the flag decided not to bother paying millions of pounds in tax she otherwise would have owed to the British Exchequer.

Diven't matta, marra, as they say back in Cumbria.

Thatcher doing it is "sensible tax management".
Benn doing it is "typical champagne socialist hypocrisy".

Get with the narrative!

Isn't it the sort of arrangement that newspaper personal finance sections have in them?
Form a company in the British Virgin Islands isn't quite the same.

This is like the Ken Livingstone tax dodger bollocks. Which was, er, being a company.

Why would a celeb Q&A in the personal finance section with Melvyn Hayes get Telegraph readers frothing?
Repeat fees can play a big part in an actor’s salary. How do you feel about the BBC refusing to repeat Perry and Croft’s wartime sitcom, It Ain’t Half Hot Mum?

It was one of the most popular shows on television and I don’t understand the decision. Now, people can swear on television – which we never did – and you’re seemingly allowed to tell any homophobic joke you want, et cetera. Yet because Windsor Davies’s character called us a “bunch of poofs” and Michael Bates, who was born in India, dressed up as an Indian, the BBC won’t repeat it. It’s sad. The writers, Jimmy Perry and David Croft, tried everything they could to get the BBC to repeat it but to no avail.

One of the funniest series ever and yes, the BBC are pathetic for not re-running it. But they were quite happy to show Citizen Khan! At least you can see IAHHM on YouTube..............

They could put it on Dave. I'm sure if you look you will find most of the output of Dave is BBC repeats. One wonders how this happens. Is Dave an anagram of BBC?

One scene that had me in stitches on IAHHM was when Windsor Davies had them quick marching and he was shouting " YOU ARE A LOAD OF POOFS! WHAT ARE YOU?....WE ARE A LOAD OF POOFS! . The BBC is beyond the pale

I won't be watching The Goodies ever again after Bill Oddie's stupid pro-immigration, anti-family comments.
mazing in that he is so out of touch with how most people feel i.e. fed up with uncontrolled immigration. I was a Tory voter now turned UKIP.

Strange how the BBC has no problem showing a Quentin Tarantino film that uses the racial slur N*******r every 30 seconds. But wont show this gentle 1970s comedy because it uses slightly outdated jokey language from the 1970s. I despise the BBC now, and the sooner it loses its Poll tax the better
