So it must be galling for the people of Richmond Park constituency to read that their Tory candidate,the multi millionaire Zac Goldsmith, is a non dom, and avoids UK income tax on his vast £200 million wealth.
No wonder the Tory Party were so keen to try to overturn a recent Lib Dem and Labour amendment to a law which would have made it illegal for non doms to fund in any way UK political parties as it would have cut off the vast sums Zac Goldsmith has poured in to Richmond Park constituency.
David Cameron and George Osborne have been talking tough on tax avoidance recently. Let's see how they act against one of their own "A listers".
I wonder if the Tory front organisation the Tax Payers Alliance will comment about this ? After all, surely those setting our taxes should also be paying the taxes ? However, it's hardly likely since it was reported recently that one of the senior people in the TPA is also a French resident who does not pay UK tax.
