IMF chief Christine Lagarde pays NO TAX on her £300,000 salary #hypocrisy #euro #Greece


Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, Internat...

IMF chief Christine Lagarde pays NO TAX on her £300,000 salary despite attacking Greece for dodging payment | Mail Online.

Lagarde may or may not be right when she says “it’s your own fault” to Greece but this is yet another distasteful example of the hypocrisy surrounding the whole euro crisis.

Her statement regarding unpaid tax by wealthy Greeks may also be accurate. After all, that’s probably been going on for over 30 years!!

I’m not even suggesting that she shouldn’t be paid £300K (although that’s another story) but not paying any tax? This is due to her ‘diplomatic status’

I wonder if the phrase “people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” translates into French. Of course the common sense approach to avoid this criticism, would be to pay her £500K and tax her at 40% but then, isn’t that why Europe is in a such a mess?

Common sense, don’t throw stones without it!
