House Of Cards just gave David Cameron the biggest burn of all over his tax affairs


David Cameron is facing a lot of heat after revealing he and his wife sold shares worth more than £30,000 in an offshore tax haven fund set up by his late father.

The Prime Minister has faced intense pressure to detail his interests since the Panama Papers leaks included details of Blairmore Holdings - an offshore fund Cameron's father helped set up in tax haven Panama in 1982.

Cameron is facing criticism from Labour MPs and the wider public. #ResignCameron fast became the top trend on Twitter on Friday, and a protest has been organised for outside Downing Street on Saturday.

But perhaps the biggest burn of all came from hit Netflix political drama House Of Cards - which features Kevin Spacey as twisted, corrupt US president Frank Underwood.

The show's official Twitter account replied to a Cameron tweet from 2015 in which he says those who pay their taxes should be "rewarded, not punished", with a subtle gif of Underwood in the oval office typing on his phone.

Because of course if Underwood wasn't a fictional character, he'd have surely been dragged into the Panama Papers scandal - and naturally squirmed his way out of trouble with some absurd, spooky bargaining techniques.

Top stuff, person who controls the House Of Cards Twitter account. We applaud you.
