Tax avoiding/evading bastards

Right, not too sure which is the legal one and which the illegal one, but I accidently ran into a story on the Daily Mail site about footballers looking at ways they can get around paying tax.
Now, I don't believe the vast majority of what's in the Mail, but it's about tax so let's go with it.
If it's true, big if, then it's disgusting and I hope the treasury is looking into to many of the ways that people get around paying tax. It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, you pay your taxes. Now I'm all for higher marginal rates, and if someone does something illegal punish them in the proper way. If it means some people move abroad to escape, let them go. BUT DON'T then put them in the Lords and put them in charge of Tory Party policy like Lord Bastard Ashcroft. No representation without taxation.
