Jimmy Carr or Roger Federer? A taxing question...

The Prime Minister was once again embroiled in controversy over the Jimmy Carr K2 tax avoidance scandal after visiting Wimbledon to watch the Men's Final between Britain's Andy Murray and Switzerland's Roger Federer.

While in the VIP box, Cameron was heckled by crowd members asking if he paid for his ticket out of his fathers trust fund, or did he get a freebie. Then Roger Federer shouted to Cameron "Don't criticize my arrangements Prime Minister, I'm Roger Federer not Jimmy Carr" a reference to newspaper columns and websites pointing out the two of them looking similar.

After winning the match in four sets, Federer explained to Sue Barker "The match was very taxing today, but I've won enough to buy a new car. I aimed to win 8 out of 10 points, I've lost a Wimbledon final before and I didn't want a repeat of people asking me 'Rodge why the long face?' now I have to run, I've left my kids in the pub because I couldn't get a babysitter"

Roger Federer is 30, and has a Swiss bank account.
