George Osborne, taxation and Casablanca

"I was shocked to see that some of the very wealthiest people in the country have organised their tax affairs so that they were regularly paying virtually no income tax."
Rt Hon George Osborne MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer, 10 April 2012

"I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!"
Captain Renault, Casablanca, 1942

If George Osborne had read this maybe he wouldn't be so surprised -
