they have destroyed the middle class,
now the point of the diamond will get rid of millionaires and billionaires,
why don't they release everything
Tax avoidance is an expression of basic British freedoms. You may not like the principles set out by Lord Tomlin in the Inland Revenue’s case against the Duke of Westminster, but they are as fundamental as Magna Carta, and a good deal more useful to most of us (my italics):
"Every man is entitled, if he can, to arrange his affairs so that the tax attaching under the appropriate Acts is less than it otherwise would be. If he succeeds in ordering them so as to serve that result, then, however unappreciative the Commissioners of Inland Revenue or his fellow taxpayers may be of his ingenuity, he cannot be compelled to pay an increased tax."
- 'if he can' is the key there. I'm not sure the Duke was thinking about the rest of us when he brought the case.Fax_Benson
- Tomlin's focus was on IR trying to (unfairly) maximise payment owned... rather Duke's right to reduce tax liability.LukeO
- didn't it come about because he was trying to take his staff's wages off the books?Fax_Benson
- net result is - it's a universal right, especially if you can afford it.Fax_Benson

I love this sort of thing, as finally people who are being greedy cunts can no longer safely do it in secret.
They will still do it, and there's still not a helluva lot that we can do.. but hopefully it will make the world a more transparent place!
War, terrorism, famine, gangs and many of the biggest problems in this world are root-caused by inequality and corrupt greed. This kind of thing should be followed by another, but better organised, Occupy movement and maybe we can actually start taking things back to the way they were.

Saw this on the BBC. I like how the graph doesn't name the US but Nevada. Seems odd. But still trying to see how this stuff is newsworthy. Really seems like a bit of a public shaming game of thrones style. I saw soros was a backer of the news beakers, but not sure how it would help him. thought he was busy betting against chinese currency.
- makes total sense to me

Panama Papers Reveal Clinton’s Kremlin Connection
John and Tony Podesta aren’t fooling anyone
The revelations of the so-called Panama Papers that are roiling the world’s political and financial elites this week include important facts about Team Clinton. This unprecedented trove of documents purloined from a shady Panama law firm that arranged tax havens, and perhaps money laundering, for the globe’s super-rich includes juicy insights into how Russia’s elite hides its ill-gotten wealth.
Almost lost among the many revelations is the fact that Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C. Though hardly a household name, this firm is well known inside the Beltway, not least because its CEO is Tony Podesta, one of the best-connected Democratic machers in the country. He founded the firm in 1998 with his brother John, formerly chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, then counselor to President Barack Obama, Mr. Podesta is the very definition of a Democratic insider. Outsiders engage the Podestas and their well-connected lobbying firm to improve their image and get access to Democratic bigwigs.
Since the brothers are destined for very high-level jobs if the Democrats triumph in November, their relationship is something they—and Clinton—need to explain.

This Delaware Address Is Home to 200,000 Shell Companies—Including Hillary Clinton’s
In wake of ‘Panama Papers’ scandal, renewed interest in tax avoidance efforts
The address “1209 North Orange Street” in Wilmington, Del., has become known in recent years as the epicenter of U.S. corporate secrecy. The squat, split-level building is the official address of over 285,000 companies, many of which are looking to take advantage of Delaware’s Panama-like secrecy rules, tax incentives, and business-friendly case law.

- My friend has a business address there too. Kwinkydink!BrokenHD
- Deceived by the most deceitful, but keep drinking the Kool-aid. . . Keep pulling that lever, in the name of social outrage. *sighdrake-von-drake
