Following the new government’s immediate introduction of the flagship conservative Married Persons Tax Allowance, William Hague again became evasive when questioned about Mr. and Samantha Cameron’s marriage status. Both Labour and Lib Dems are demanding an inquiry to establish what Mr. Hague knew and when he knew it Questions to both the Conservative Party and Mr. Hague’s office have been met by silence. His office later released a statement “Mr. Hague has no reason to believe that the Camerons have not complied with the requirements of the recently introduced Married Persons Tax Allowance and that Mr. and Ms. Cameron’s tax affairs are between themselves and the HMRC”. Recent evidence has shown that Mr. Hague was not a witness at the alleged ceremony and that despite his recent experiences he has not verified the documentation relating to the supposed marriage.
Labour party officials were quick to point out that whilst Mr and Ms Cameron seem to share the same surname, there has been no evidence presented to the public showing that this is anything other than coincidence – after all, “Cameron is not an unusual name”.
These allegations are bound to re-awaken concern after a similar incident during the election when Mr. Hague became evasive about what and when his friend Lord Ashcroft did (or did not) do and under what circumstances he may (or may not) have acted (or not acted) to resolve (or not resolve) previous agreements that may (or may not) have changed (or not changed).
