Sweden: are there any law abiding ministers?

The last thing The Daily wants is to become as obsessed with Sweden as Polly Toynbee, however… 

News reaches us that finance minister Anders Borg has admitted not paying tax on a nanny he employed.  Borg, described slightly bizarrely by the Guardian as “Europe’s first finance minister with a ponytail”, is the fourth minister to be hit by accusations over tax evasion – two have already resigned.  Borg told Aftonbladet: “My ambition has been to obey the law of the land. I am convinced that we have succeeded for the most part”.

Why do right-wingers refuse to pay their fair share?
