“Critics of David Cameron’s tax agreements should admit that they hate anyone who has even got a hint of wealth in their life”, says Conservative MP for Rutland and Melton Sir Alan Duncan.
The former Minister of State has given his full support to David Cameron amid the ongoing controversy of the Prime Ministers tax affairs following the Panama Papers leak.
Duncan warned that if the PMs critics are not careful “we risk seeing a House of Commons which is stuffed full of low achievers, who hate enterprise, hate people who look after their own family and who know absolutely nothing about the outside world”.
It does not take a genius to work out that Alan Duncan’s remarks are quite frankly ridiculous. The majority of the critics of David Cameron’s tax affairs come from honest hard working people who do pay taxes – they only want a fair society. It is a mockery that the Prime Minister – the highest publicly elected official in Great Britain – keeps his dodgy dealings secret from both the taxman and the public despite hypocritically stating how “tax avoidance is morally wrong”. It is the general public’s right to scrutinize an official who is supposed to enrich the lives of the general public, not impoverish them.
