    If it's true - well done that man - far better way of spending your er, erm . . . . mmmm . . . . tax savings?

    Edited to add: I'm not knocking the bloke. I know he's had a right sl@gging from the trough-snouting, corrupt left-wingers out there for his foreign registered business, and the fact that they think he should be paying UK taxes (hence the non-domiciled tax policies they are trying to bring in). TBH - I can't think of a better way to do things actually. He earns his money abroad, and spends it as he wishes.

    If he paid UK taxes, it would be spent on black lesbian wales, and as he doesn't, he's chucking a load of it at the Imperial War Museum. Top bloke by all accounts.
