Neil Duncan-Jordan, chairman of the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Trades Union Council, said the campaign demo was nothing personal against Jimmy Carr – rather he was ‘a peg to hang it on’ after he had been associated with the tax avoidance issue earlier in the year.

He added: “It’s not about Jimmy Carr….. this is about the need for the very rich in society to pay a much fairer tax and to call on the government to do more to stop tax avoidance and tax evasion.”
