Cleaning Up After Gordon

Sharing a cleaner is not really what Gordon Brown has done is it? If a cleaner is employed and tax and national insurance paid, the cleaner can't just be used by a wholly separate household/employer and the two employers settle the cost between them. Or we could all avoid paying employment costs by using other people's employees. It's enough of a cheek to charge us all for ironing his beastly shirts and cleaning his beastly house - what's his wife supposed to be doing - but if he needed to employ somebody else he should have acted like an employer, not paid his brother for his 'share'.

And if his brother was acting as his agent then that attracts employment costs as well.
