Tipping point?

It would be nice to think that Jimmy Carr's more or less abject apology, allied with Mr Cameron's confusion about which aspects of tax avoidance to condemn (comedians - bad, popsingers - don't know, Tory donors - a matter between them and the HMRC) represented a sea-change in public attitudes to tax avoidance.  Will the tax dodgers rush to clean up their act?  Somehow, I doubt it.

But at least it's a move in the right direction ...
