In one of the most systematic and malicious abuses revealed in the recent Paradise Papers, popular children’s icon Noddy will be to be the first of the 1% taken to task.
Noddy, who in recent years has regularly been seen flying in is private jet, helicopter and even sailing luxury yacht has been avoiding tax through a series of offshore investments and claiming that he earns a living as a taxi driver. As the only car he has is a highly customised classic, tax officials are calling this claim laughable.
Questions have been asked of the local constabulary as to how Noddy got away with this for so long. So far PC Plod has wobbled but has not fallen down. It is thought that his unpaid tax bill could be as high as a bag of gumballs and Big Ears’ last Rolo.
