Osborne's tax return

Mr Osborne wants us all to see his tax return, so it is mooted in the press. It surprises me that he thinks anyone is interested. I would be more interested in seeing his pension plans and whether they are linkedto CPI or RPI. Most public sector workers now face the prospect of a 20% reduction in their hard-earned pension in the first fifteen years of retirement. I wonder if he does?
Transparency in how much the policicians earn is engendered by self-interest. This is because the figures when they are in Parliament will be offset by the 'two homes' and expenses claims. I suspect it is all a ploy to indicate that bankers are much better off and they will be able to say how poor they themselves are by comparison - which is a load of old tosh.
There may be another reason behind this. If Osborne knew that the Labour policians earn more as a group it would beneficial in the next election. The poor conservatives, the rich left-wingers who would be shown to be hypocrits.
It could be just as interesting to see their wives and partners tax returns too because you would get a much better picture of their over all income.
Bet we don't see those!
