Tax row rumbles on as Corbyn and Osborne release tax returns

The row over Prime Minister David Cameron's taxes, and those of other MPs, continues to rumble on despite Chancellor George Osborne and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn both publishing their tax returns for last year yesterday.

It comes as it remains unclear who will be the next MP to make their finances open to public scrutiny.

David Cameron used a discussion about the issue in the Commons on Monday to hit back at "deeply hurtful and profoundly untrue allegations" that have been made against his late father during the current tax affairs row.

Corbyn: Public no longer has trust in Cameron over tax

Jeremy Corbyn claims the public "no longer trusts" the Prime Minister after the tax affairs row.

Dismissing Cameron's statement as a "masterclass in the art of distraction", he accused the PM of failing to realise how angry people are over the "national scandal".

Addressing the Commons, he said: "We've gone through six years of crushing austerity; families lined up at food banks to feed their children, disabled people losing their benefits, elderly care cut and slashed, living standards going down.

"Much of this could have been avoided if our country hadn't been ripped off by super rich refusing to pay their taxes.

"I say this to the Prime Minister; ordinary people in the country simply won't stand for this any longer.

"They want real justice, they want the wealthy to pay their share of tax like they pay when they work hard all the time."
