Is he having a laugh?

According to yesterday's Evening Standard, Rory Bremner compered the Private Asset Managers' Awards at the Dorchester over the weekend and cracked a number of edgy jokes.

Asked Bremner: “Anyone here Dutch? Great salesmen, the Dutch. Anyone that can sell ABN Amro…”

 He still got a laugh for that, unlike the crack that he “once had dinner with Sir Fred Goodwin. Halfway through, he said, Shall we go Dutch?'”

But the biggest laugh came with his jibe about Tory tax dodger Lord Ashcroft.

This is the discovery that Ashcroft has claimed a non-domicile status in the UK to avoid tax payments for many years.

“What is the difference between a condom and a non-dom?

“If you make a mistake with a condom, it takes nine months to find out. If you make a mistake with a non-dom, it takes nine years.

“But either way, when you find out, you're completely f**ked.”
