Looks a bit odd and hypocritical for DN to carp on about tax avoidance (à la R Murphy) as ex-head of tax at CC, who advised on at least one well known failed SDLT scheme involving Chelsea Barracks (unless perhaps he's angling for a political job etc. somewhere).

Nothing on that particular blog is revelatory, so I don't see the big deal here (e.g. I've mentioned non-dom EPTs here frequently).

He's also wrong re HMRC only using GAAR for abusive tax avoidance. See:
