What Tories get in return: Michael Ashcroft

Ashcroft was given a seat in the House of Lords.

When given the seat, solemn assurances were given by the then Tory party leader William Hague, that Ashcroft would give up his non-domiciled status and actually begin paying UK taxes on his fortunes.

Almost a decade later it was revealed that Ashcroft had remained non-domiciled, and that Hague’s own personal secretary James Arbuthnot had lobbied for Ashcroft to keep his non-dom status, and that Ashcroft had continue avoiding millions of pounds in UK tax on his earnings.
