Forleden meddelte medierne forarget at også de udenlandske medier interesserede sig for Lene Espersen

Der er tilsyneladende ingen af dem, der føler trang til at berette om, hvorledes store britiske medier interesserer sig for Helle Thorning-Schmidt og Stephen Kinnock, for den sag skal helst lægges død hurtigst muligt.

The curse of the Kinnocks has struck again after it emerged that Mr Kinnock junior pays taxes in Switzerland – which has the lowest taxes in Europe – and not in Denmark, where his family home is situated but which has the highest tax rates in the world.

It has saved Mr Kinnock and his wife Helle Thorning-Schmidt, leader of Denmark’s Social Democrats, an estimated £40,000 a year.

But it has caused uproar in Denmark, not least because Mr Kinnock’s wife’s party has called for Denmark’s tax rates to be raised  higher to cope with the recession.

[…]

Stephen Kinnock, 40, earns £110,000 a year as a World Economic Forum executive in Geneva, where he spends Monday to Friday, returning to the Copenhagen home he shares with his wife and their two daughters at weekends.

With a tax rate of just 15 per cent, Mr Kinnock pays an estimated £12,000 a year in taxes to the Swiss authorities. If he paid taxes in Denmark, where everyone earning more than £45,000 pays 63 per cent, his tax bill would be in the region of £50,000, nearly £40,000 more.
