Tory party has been bought like a banana republic says Chris Huhne MP.
“The Conservatives’ biggest donor is a tax-dodger from Belize,” said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary.
Commenting on Lord Ashcroft’s admission that he is non-domiciled for tax purposes, Chris Huhne said;
“The Conservatives’ biggest donor is a tax-dodger from Belize who has not paid a penny of British tax on the vast bulk of his estimated £1.1bn fortune held offshore.”
“This raises extraordinary questions about the judgement of successive Tory leaders – William Hague, Michael Howard and David Cameron – whose view seems to be that only little people should pay tax.
