This is interesting... Zac Goldsmith, tho' somewhat reluctant to dip his hand into his pocket to pay UK taxes, is more than willing to get his wallet out when it comes to funding his own election campaign.
I met up the other night with someone who has kids at school in the Richmond constituency. Zac Goldsmith paid for all the pupils in years 5 and 6 of her daughter's state primary school to attend a play on the Holocaust at a London theatre.
This is the Tory 'trickle down' approach to taxation in a nutshell; perish the thought that rich people should have to pay their fair share of taxes to fund our state education. Let them rely on the largesse of wealthy benefactors trying to buy their way into Parliament.
