Sir Lewis Hamilton

And if that is the case then he’s avoiding paying his fair share to the UK and depriving the UK citizens of much needed public resources
This from the civil servant who said "it's no skin off my nose that I'm sat at home on full pay doing nothing" during most of the summer.

Correct but as my wages are paid via PAYE i paid the correct tax rate and NI and therefore contributed the correct amount of tax intake for the public purse.

Bit of a mute point really. I haven’t avoided paying the correct amount of UK tax liability.

Arguments about his tax contributions are really quite tedious. It's the proliferation of dishing out top honours to sports stars over the past 15-20 years that has, along with a few other things, completely undermined any integrity or credibility the system once had.

No, you got paid by me and other tax payers for doing absoutely diddly squat and you were delighted about it.
You didn't contribute, you took money off the government for doing **** all and you revelled in it.
Boasting about laying around in your joggies doing nothing earlier in the year then criticising others concerning their tax affairs which you know nothing about is the height of hypocrisy but then that's you all over.

I sure did. Along with over 50% of the civil service. Some were offline for alot longer than me also.

Civil service policy from March 23rd was under no circumstances can anybody who has a health condition which covered the vulnerable category be allowed into an office and must stay at home on special leave. (This covered my partner also a civil servant and my daughter) following this guidance changed in May that allowed partners of vulnerable people to also go home to work.

If it takes 6 weeks to get a computer to me. Not my issue. Civil service policy i’m afraid. I would suggest if you had an issue with the approach the civil service took you write to your local MP or should have at the time.

I did advise you at the time I don’t wear “joggies” i don’t own a pair.... oh I have since been promoted also. So at least you know that despite your tax paying for me to sit at home when I did do some work I at least provided value for your hard earned taxes.

That's a very long and varied list of excuses you've compiled there, well done.

And why would I write to my MP about you jumping on an opportunity to stay at home on 100% of your pay contributing nothing (unless you're claiming EOTHO was 'doing your bit')?

Besides, my local MP doesn't reply to non-Conservative constituents.

Well it is just a matter of fact that was civil service policy.

Well as about 50% of the civil service were at home (some departments already allowed for home working, some never such as DWP) therefore tens of thousands of staff were at home on full pay doing nothing, some for months. you don’t feel that was warranted so you could have complained to your MP about how your taxes were being spent.

Your MP should not know what party you support unless you tell them.

Oh I contributed vastly during EOTHO. Great scheme, wish they would do it again.

Anyways enough about me. I correctly contributed the amount of tax and NI i was liable to pay whether working or in special pay. Something your hero Lewis tries to avoid and you have derailed the convo away from him and onto me. Classic deflection

I'd made many contributions to the thread before you popped up Cooper providing your intimate knowledge of Lewis Hamilton's personal tax affairs.

My first contribution to the thread was to praise him for the world beating, world class sports star he is. Being the only black driver in F1 I also support him for his stand against racial intolerance. I also know that he donates to and carries out a lot of work for charities helping disadvantaged children.

His tax status has been given the all-clear by the Honours Committee so it's only fair that he receives this honour albeit it'll have the rednecks jumping up and down.

It's no coincidence that the likes of Lewis Hamiton and Marcus Rashford are often targeted for criticism by a certain section of the general public.

In that case I honestly don't know. But living in Monaco, and having the financial advisors that are available to him, the fact that he is in the top 5000 contributors does not suggest that he doesn't want to contribute, which is TAB's argument.
My argument is far simpler than that, if you financially domicile outside the UK you do not receive any recognition.

Nice to see one of our out and out left wingers supporting tax avoidance.

I assume you support Starbucks , Vodafone, Amazon , Facebook and Microsoft in their avoidance schemes.
