George Osborne Tax Avoidance Advice Re-Emerges After Tax Credit Climbdown

George Osborne is experiencing yet another tax nightmare after being forced into a humiliating withdrawal over his controversial cuts to tax credits.

The ensuing furore is making people remember the time the Chancellor took to national television to advocate avoiding pesky taxes altogether.

Osborne will now delay the implementation of the working credit reforms until he could form a plan to "compensate" those who would lose thousands as a result of the changes.

But in footage from the BBC's Daily Politics programme aired in 2003, above, Osborne talks viewers through helpful ways to lower their tax obligations - not quite in keeping with his current role as tax-collector-in-chief.
