Lord Ashcroft wants to decide our laws, but doesn't want to pay his fair share towards our NHS, schools or armed forces.

Lord Ashcroft, the Conservative's biggest donor has admitted that he is a Tax Non Dom. Ashcroft who also makes our laws as a member of the house of lords, appears to have endless money for the Conservative Party, whilst being unwilling to pay tax in the UK to help fund our NHS, schools or armed forces.

"The Conservatives' biggest donor is a tax-dodger from Belize," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary.

Commenting on Lord Ashcroft's admission that he is non-domiciled for tax purposes, Chris Huhne said:

"The Conservatives' biggest donor is a tax-dodger from Belize who has not paid a penny of British tax on the vast bulk of his estimated £1.1bn fortune held offshore.

"This raises extraordinary questions about the judgement of successive Tory leaders - William Hague, Michael Howard and David Cameron - whose view seems to be that only little people should pay tax.

"The Tory party has been bought like a banana republic."
