New defence minister in tax loophole scandal

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So, if £30million is "offshore" or "out-of-area" then it does not incur tax. If Armed Forces personnel are "out-of-area" or "offshore" then they do incur tax. Is the Drayson example an indicator that service personnel will no longer be taxed on deployment?!? Or is it another fat cat crony minister displaying the expected virtues of greed and duplicity?

    On a serious note, did Drayson have any insider knowledge that, in the City, would lead to prosecution?

  2. Blur has run the most Corrupt Government since Lloyd George.
    Oh and to quote one judge reduced Britian to a 'Banana Republic"
  3. Quote:
    Does 'conflict of interest', or buying ones appointment come into question here.

    How does BLiar present this appointment as 'the best man for the job'?

    Who else has bought their appointment?
  4. what will gordon have to say about it? :wink:

  5. A terrible example of "do as I say, not as I do". Complete corruption and yet I suspect it will disappear from the national memory the same way as all the other examples of sharp practice that this government has carried out.

    BLiar and his cohorts are doing a pretty good impression of a dictatorship. Only thing missing is a funny salute.
