.

Ann Godbehere, the new finance director, is also thought to be a non-dom,
having dual Canadian and British citizenship.

Paul Kenny, general secretary of the union GMB, said: ‘The Chancellor has no
alternative but to ask Mr Sandler to end his non-dom tax status and become a
resident taxpayer.’

Robin Ashby, founder of the Northern Rock Small Shareholders’ Group, was
quoted in
The
Times
saying: ‘[Shareholders] will look pretty much askance at what I’d
deem to be tax exiles taking over their company.’
