    Guardian article..””I am not going to give a running commentary on different people’s tax affairs. I don’t think that would be right,” Cameron said at a press conference in Downing Street. “I made an exception yesterday [with Carr] because it was a very specific case where the details seemed to have been published and it was a particularly egregious example of an avoidance scheme that seemed to me to be wrong and I made that point.”

    On a day of fast-moving developments, Downing Street also raised eyebrows by suggesting it may now abandon plans for David Cameron and senior ministers to disclose their tax returns.

    Cameron said in April that he expected information about his finances to be made public, and was relaxed about the prospect. But on Thursday No 10 said there were no current plans to do so.

    The prime minister’s spokeswoman said the proposal for ministers to reveal their tax details was still being “looked into”. Ministers were “not closed to the idea”, but it was “not a very near-future thing”, the aide said……………

    It seems that the real ‘error of judgement’, on Carr’s part, was a failure to support Cameron and donate to
    Tory party funds.

    But David, economists only exist to argue unprovable theories with other economists while the rest of us try and make the world function.
