This week saw the passing of comic legend Ken Dodd, and while friends, family and fans mourn his loss, one of Dodd’s final actions could be interpreted as a final joke at HMRC’s expense.
Two days before his death the comedian married long-term partner Anne Jones, with whom he had shared his Liverpool home for the past 40 years.

While the couple were reportedly delighted to have finally tied the knot, the action also avoided a potential inheritance tax bill of up to £2.6m.

With Dodd worth an estimated £7.2m, without the marriage the estate could have been liable for a 40% rate of IHT, whereas assets can be passed between married couples free of inheritance tax on death.

The nil-rate band for inheritance tax is currently £325,000, while homeowners have a residence nil-rate band at £100,000 if the home is left to a direct descendant.

this is a tweet by Dom Jolly

We live in a time where intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended

I think that's a pretty good summation of woke culture


mmmm, the trouble is the "intelligent people" think they have the God given right to look down on those who didnt go to uni... which is the majority of the population, hence the "Stupid people voted for Brexit" that was bounded about, as if only the clever clogs (self assessed) should have been able to vote (a lot of those had financial reasons for opposing Brexit.... look at Lineker and Elton John....

All are born equal but some are more equal to others


You don't need to have been at university to be intelligent, nor do you need any qualifications to be intelligent.....you either are intelligent or your not, many people that did go to university were and are still stupid.
