    An interesting article that came up in my Twitter feed

    Can Jeremy Corbyn claim a moral high ground on tax issues when he himself treats Her Majesty's Revenue with contempt? There were numerous questions in that return he didn't even bother to fill out

    I just can't believe people are willing to pay him £150 to waffle for an hour.
    I hope he releases his previous years so people can see just how truly principled he really is receiving money from Capita and the Iranian government!

    Indeed, I'm wondering why the FCO would pay him for his "expertise"; in what? Sucking up to anti-semites?

    It looks like the Sun have got hold of a story that approximates this one though the Sun is actually claiming he has underreported income. They contacted his office and they haven't got back to them

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...to-taxman.html

    The Opposition Leader’s office said it was unable to explain why Mr Corbyn did not declare the additional £450 to the HMRC in his tax return.

    His spokesman told The Sun: “I’m sure there is a simple reason for the difference but I will look into it.”

    However, four hours after we approached them they still could not explain the disparity.A Labour source confessed: “We are stuggling to get a clear understanding of what has gone on.”
    If Corbyn can't even manage his own affairs, how can he manage the country's?

    As usual, Butterfingers Corbyn turned an open goal into an own goal.

    He demands the PM's tax return, he's then asked to show his. He says he lost it, then it turns out he was fined £100 for late filing, and now it looks like he not only misreported his lecture income but it's now being reported that he failed to declare thousands of pounds of pension income

    John McDonnel is getting thousands of pension income...that utilises off shore investments just like most pension funds; so much for one rule for the rich and another for everybody else.

    Well he must be making massive payments into a private pension then, which I might add will be making the sorts of offshore investments that he claimed were tax evasion when Cameron was making the investments and he knows full well it will be the case.

    Corbyn is a working man and unlike Shameron, doesn't get expenses for a second home. All he used was for some ink.

    That's utter nonsense. He earns FAR MORE than the threshold.

    Expenses = Pay.

    If Thatcher wasn't so greedy and trained Dodgy Dave to get non-dom status in Panama to get his dad's fortune, then maybe we'll be talking.

    No, that is his official salary, he claimed like £1,000 in expenses.

    David Cameron got £19,000 post tax. Good Job on not understanding economics.
