Tax fraud at the top

No surprise if the charges stick. I’m just surprised that most people don’t yet understand that corruption and fraud are predominantly to be found among those in senior positions. Not only that but it seems that the more senior, the more corrupt. Right across society, those who are most readily regarded as “respectable” and “upstanding” citizens are usually the most hypocritical and parsimonious among us. High office is rarely achieved…

In fact, once elected, each government does what it wants, even abandoning or doing a complete about…

Panama Papers and Mossack Fonseca explained

This scandal is nothing new.
