Some people, apparently, find Jimmy Carr a very funny man. Others, it seems, have always found him to be rather smug and oleaginous. Following today’s revelations about his Jersey-based tax scam, in which he has been found to have squirreled away a fortune of £3.3 million on the island using the K2 Scheme to pay only 1% tax on his earnings, some might say that he is a smug, oleaginous hypocrite. Surely not? After all, look at what he says in the video below. A hypocrite? Would 8 out of ten fat cats come to such a conclusion? For the mechanics of the scam, refer either to this article in The Daily Telegraph, or this one in The Daily Mail. We await his redemption and resurrection in The Guardian at some point.
