“I guess it’s the same old same old. The law is the law and the Chancellor’s wife is free to take best advantage of the UK system.

“This story proves the paucity of political argument in the UK. If Labour are that concerned about the benefits provided to non-doms (which are abundant throughout the world) they need to make the abolition of non-dom status part of their next manifesto.

“Singling out one woman, who happens to be the Chancellor’s wife (of whose tax affairs we know very little), for political capital is, I’m afraid, par for the course and what we have come to expect.

“Leave her alone and focus on more important things.”
