Free Jimmy Carr

Apart from some second hand jokes and that strange look what did he do wrong? Any tax laws broken? If so prove it, if not leave him alone.

Nothing.

But when did that stop the censorial British press from deciding that somebody was 'doing wrong'?

A few weeks ago on the Today programme, they tried having a go at Philip Green. The day after, they issued an apology to both him and his wife.

Obviously the lawyers got on the blower and the BBC backed down. Notice how that didn't make front page news

Possibly underpaying tax under the dreadedly toothless IR35 legislation lol.Otherwise he's basically just elected to book his gains in a private company and pay CT rate on them until he decides to distribute - which he'll undoubtedly do through a shifty off-shore loan/pensions/trust deal to swerve income and repatriation.

In short, he's not doing anything that a lot of TV personalities do. I used to have a list of some of the more well-known ones that do it but I've no idea why he's been singled out.

Example http://company-director-check.co.uk/director/910439817

There'll be a limited co partner in there somewhere too for further messing around.

I guess tangling with the revenue will rule him out of the England job then.
