I read that he inherited £300,000 from his father, and my first thought was "I wonder where he stashed the rest of the money?"
Hi ejfj:Good point. But I think he has a brother and a sister, and of course he may have left money to various grandchildren. Then of course he died before his wife so Mrs Cameron will have inherited.
Correction. He has two sisters.
Don't forget, his mother (the one who thought he was going too far when her wee job got cut) benefited from her husband's company for 30 years.
Yes indeed. And presumably will continue to benefit from the inheritance she received when Mr Cameron snr died.
The whole ethos of the Thatcher/Reagan neoliberal experiment was that paying tax is a bad thing and should be avoided where possible.Unfortunately,it is only the wealthy who can employ tax dodgers to ensure they don't and the rest of us plebs have to pay extra to make up for it.If the Tories and their converts in New Labour etc were really serious about this system,they would allow us all to have our pay/pensions paid into a bank account in a tax haven of our choice.Of course,they aren't and all this B/S about free markets etc is just another scam to allow the rich to get richer at our expense.
When you think what could have been done and what we could have had in this country if it hadn't been for the aggressive tax evasion and avoidance of the super rich...

What! No clip-on?
Quite possibly he did that too, Arbroath. Ties done up tight seem to be important in these people's words. Makes up for the time the rest of us spend on compassion.
So, Conan, you have to buy all that as well as pay the £40,000 fees? When you think that the Cameron's had four kids, that something like £200,000 a year. No wonder he turned to offshoring!
Jim, is that not what disposable ties are?A bit like the Queen Mum, who apparently never wore anything twice.
It is to be hoped that his dad did not buy a pig in a poke? Interesting that you think the Queen Mum - Gawd bless you, ma'am - was a bit like a disposable tie? Conan harking back to his time at Eton?
Maybe that was how he learned about pigs... Ah yes, perhaps I didn't phrase that too well, but you knew what I meant and you're just making mischief, so nothing new there... I thought that Conan went to Gordonston, but maybe he went to Eton as well. That would explain why he's so damned clever!
Umm ! eight pairs of underpants are a trifle extreme twois enough for moi wear one day turn inside out wear day twoday three wash in toilet bowl (prior to use saving water wery ecofriendly )hang out of tower block to dry and wear second pair usingsame process all over again....these pairs of underpanties are onlyten years old..Obviously conan goes about Highland style and bare erse to allyuk ! never sit on conans seat when he gets of the bus
That's what I though. One day for each day of the week and two for Sundays?Such extravagance, I though. Like lads change their underwear every day!!!!You're lucky you can still get into underpants that are ten years old!
TrisHis father would have said " David, why are there still libraries open, why is the NHS still not owned by Americans, why is that awful smelly steel plant still open, why do poor people still get benefits. David, you are too soft on the smelly poor, why did I bother hiding our family fortune away so you could call it a private matter, David you need to be more like you secret half brothers George and Ian".Bruce
LOL.. Reply: Papa, I'm doing my best. Come back in 2020 and judge me then.
It was a Panamanian adventure that helped get us into the Union. I hope this one helps to get us out.On the mention of the Royals, I see Lizzie's Edinburgh pad needs ten million quids' worth of work done on it. Who is to pay for this? And would a large statue of James Connolly outside it be out of the question? (He was from Edinburgh after all).
Yeah, I saw that...that and Windsor castle.I suppose we have to pay for it. We really can;t expect her to fork out for anything despite all the increases in pay she's been getting.I dare say they'll just sanction sick people till it's paid. That's an example of Great British Values. Starve the sick so Liz can get decorated.LOL, at the idea that this Panamanian stuff will get us out of the union. Please please please.Erm, you might be asking a tad too much with the statuary!!
