As a high earner I now have no choice: I’ll have to get rid of the Au pair/Nanny, sell the kids for experimentation, and put the wife on the streets to earn her keep – but I am not getting rid of the Lamborghini or giving up my winter skiing in St Moritz!
Its enough to make one vote Labour.
Ah, good news, my accountant has been on the telephone: He recommends that I pay my wife half my salary for the housekeeping.
That is £43,000 to her as my employee and that way we can still keep the Au pair.
The kids will still have to go but at least the Lamborghini and the Skiing in St Moritz are definitely safe.
