Other folk agree – and he is paid a lot of money in consequence
Personally, I think he is vastly over-rated – he’s never made me laugh – but that’s beside the point
He is in the news – in the UK, at least – because it has been reported he has found a way (within the law) to pay tax on only 1% of his £millions earnings per year – b*stard !
Nothing new about . . .those with money seeking to avoid paying tax. What has made this incident ‘newsworthy’ is the brazen hypocrisy of the man – making fun of people using tax avoidance schemes while doing the very same thing himself
Carr’s hypocricy was matched by David Cameron, the UK Prime Minister, who was quick to join in the public condemnation of Carr, questioning the morality of using such a scheme to avoid paying tax on his income, while refusing to comment on his mate, and Conservative Party supporter, Gary Barlow, for doing likewise – http://tinyurl.com/86yqcmj
Defenders of the likes of Carr often argue that forcing wealthy people to pay more tax will drive them out of the country. In the case of so-called comedian Carr, one can only hope !
