the corner office

« David Laws | Main | RIP Gary Coleman »


It's almost as though the Telegraph is playing whack-a-mole with politicians and expenses. No sooner is Laws out and Danny Alexander in, and they're running a story about how replacement Danny Alexander dodged CGT.

One could be cynical and say they're targeting Lib Dems (they're not called the Torygraph for nothing, after all), but at the same time the Lib Dems made a big thing of how untainted by the expenses scandal they were. And it's worth making a thing of a Lib Dem Treasury Secretary who ducked CGT (whether he broke the rules or not), while the coalition's pushing through the Lib Dems' contentious CGT rises.
