Richmond Park MP Zac Goldsmith 17th best-looking Brit

Mirror, mirror on the wall, whose the fairest of them all? Well according to a poll of 1,500 women Richmond Park MP Zac Goldsmith is a real contender for the title.

A survey carried out by Wizard Jeans saw Mr Goldsmith come in at 17th place in a list of the best looking men in Britain, missing out on the top spot claimed by racing driver Jenson Button.

The accolade follows on from a similar compliment which Mr Goldsmith received in September 2010, when the good looking MP came out top in the fanciability stakes in a special edition of politico Top Trumps.

The fact that he is a non-dom and dodges taxes he votes for and imposes on us; should make him one of the least attractive people in the country!

I suspect the attraction is the bulge in his trousers... Caused by his wallet.

“Twickenham Bob” really must get his facts straight before throwing around accusations that Zac Goldsmith “is a non-dom and dodges taxes”.

Zac Goldsmith said: “I no longer have non-dom status” – it ended in April 2009”. He also explained: “I have always chosen to be tax resident in the UK.”

As for “Concerned Resident” commenting about Zac Goldsmith’s “wallet” – Zac Goldsmith stated: “a very large proportion of my post-tax income goes towards supporting environmental and charitable causes that I believe in.”

He states a lot of things Montrose. An awful lot of things.

Think about it - the vast majority of Zac's wealth is not his income, is it? It's what's in the bank already. So less than you expect will be going to charitable causes. And this is the post tax income, that was recently cut somewhat by him deciding to not be a 'non-dom'. Handy that... Changing his ways as soon as his tax status was publicly revealed.

Now I don't doubt he has a lot of income regardless, but a small proportion of a lot of money is still a lot of money. It is still good that he chooses to donate such large amounts to charity though and nobody's comments should detract from that.

Montrose - you can make yourself domiciled in the UK, but can you can continue to keep your wealth offshore, and untaxed.

Zac's weath comes from his father who was domiciled in France, yet arranged his affairs so that neither France nor Britian could tax his estate.

On his death the money was vested in a discretionry trust in a tax haven, so the money grows tax-free, and on Zac's death no IHT will be paid.

Thus his family have buit there wealth on the back of doing business in the UK, aided by the fact we have the health care, subsidised housing, and free education; yet they dont want to pay their full share of taxes that funds these facilities.

In my mind - unless you have pay tax on your world wide income you should be stripped of your passport. America deam people who use offshore tax havens as unpatriotic & the UK ought to do the same

People need to realise that the UK loses billions of pounds of revenue because of trusts. To protect ordinary tax payers the UK needs to tax world wide income and wealth.
