Watch Paul O'Grady call Osbourne a 'Blankety blank" #cuts


And then sign the petition calling on Osbourne to pay his taxes!  We're all in this together?

My mum (who is not political) was the first person to tell me she'd heard that George Osbourne was avoiding tax (not evading - he'd be put in prison for that).  I couldn't believe it at the time as surely the guy has more sense than to cut services and benefits for the poor and middle income and give everyone in the country a tax hike (VAT at 20%), while doing all he can to get out of paying tax himself.  But no, Channel 4 Dispatches have caught him out.  I'm really disgusted by this.  He should be ashamed of himself and so should anyone else who is doing something similar while calling on the rest of us to tighten our belts.
