Ashcroft and being a non-dom

Lord Ashcroft we learn this morning has finally given up his non-dom status to keep his place in the House of Lords.
After years of comment and obfuscation the Tory party Treasurer and donor has finally decided he wants to be domiciled in the UK.
The shame of it is that it took this long, that it proved such a sticking point for him and the Tory party, and most of all that there wasn’t more transparency.
It is quite an indictment that someone who wants to play a role in UK government should have prevaricated over his tax status for so long. This is no time for congratulations.
The public deserves better behaviour from those who seek to run the country.
