THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM AND US
THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE ON THIS PLANET ARE THE LEAST IMPORTANT PEOPLE
OR AT LEAST HOW THE PRESS BARONS AND THEIR SCUMBAG JOURNALISTS PORTRAY THEM
We all strive to better ourselves , in our lives and in our children's lives, but
that should NOT be at the expense of others. The ruling mafia have created an underclass
for a number of reasons and would include letting us all know that if we do not
follow their rules we may end up on the streets. Also their mass media propaganda
machine ensures the poor, disabled, vulnerable and sick can be used as a punch bag and
blamed for ALL the ills of the world and have us believe it is the POOR that are
stopping us from bettering ourselves.
This is maybe the most ruthless and devious lie created by the press barons who
have ensured the sheeple's venom is vented towards those least able to defend
themselves while distracting attention away from the ruling mafia
who live opulent lifestyles and with riches so VAST no one can truly comprehend
how vast that wealth is.
Fortunately the internet is rewriting history and exposing the myths within
a propaganda machine that must break this despicable cycle of deceit and
were a psychological battle has been waged on our minds to ensure we
remain compliant with the ruling elite's demands. We must all re-learn
to respect those who need our sympathy and understanding, not venom, and we
must also be aware that every man facing injustice will allow in the end all
men to face that same injustice .
Without fighting for the weakest in our society, while complying with the
ruling mafia's orders, we condone and perpetuate a well orchestrated master plan
that will allow these evil bastards to hold onto power unless our humanity has
a massive wake up call and remove that ruling elite from power
in one way or another. It is only in the interests of the ultra wealthy that this system
can carry on ad infinitum. Everyone else will continue to suffer, as they have
done throughout history, while the ruling mafia carry on their deceitful and
diabolical plans and all part of their new technological order.
IF YOU THINK YOUR LIFE IS BAD OR MISERABLE IT IS BECAUSE OF THE RICH NOT THE POOR.
The best index to a person's character is how they treat people who can't do them
any good, and how they treat people who can't fight back.
WE PROMOTE PEOPLE THE CORPORATE MEDIA IGNORE AT THEIR PERIL.

They only get away with murder to protect the self appointed elite pulling the strings of their satanically controlled duped goons who act ONLY in the interests of the psychopathic madmen and women running the world while living in VAST OPULENCE.
You might also believe that the latest credit crunch is affecting everybody, but look closely at the facts and you will see there is a tier of privileged individuals who NEVER suffer during controlled recessions. In fact they PROSPER while millions struggle to survive the sudden changes of fortune brought about by the few at the top deciding to rein in the pittance they provide in sustenance to the masses primarily to stop any major dissent from their form of enslavement and tyranny . For centuries these few dynastic families have been getting away with absolute murder turning generation upon generation of our forefathers into slaves for the ultra wealthy. Unless we stop them now our children and grandchildren will suffer the same deviant world they claim is some kind of civilized society. They have required a massive propaganda network to get away with this for so long, but by the day that machine is grinding to a halt in the mass exposure of the monstrous evil they have been getting away with.
Do not be fooled by the fancy clothes and ancient traditions, these mobsters have been using subtle and devious tricks of the trade , disguised as some sort of esoteric knowledge, or so they claim, while using thuggery, blackmail, bullying and abuse to persecute anyone who steps outside their masonic bubble. These maniacs and psychopaths have been raping and murdering in endless wars they create to keep us all in fear and in our lowly place.
THEY ONLY HAVE THAT POWER AS LONG AS WE LET 'EM.

How much more will it take Britain's political mafia to get into their thick skulls that British police have a toxic and

Our group have tasted the lengths freemasons, disguised as law enforcement, will go to lie and deceive to satisfy a
very warped agenda of what they believe, in their deluded state, is proper policing.
When you become a target of freemasons stealing your estate their lodge buddies with control of cops will take extreme
measures to either psychological push victims over the edge or use gross distortions of evidence and even brutally beat
to death anyone who dares stand up to their vile murderous agenda.
Hillsborough shows clearly freemasons in high office within the police used the same tactics they have used for decades but
were caught only by the dogged determination of the families and friends of the 96 killed unlawfully by the utter failure of the
police on that fateful day. Lawyers acting for the police smeared the dead and shows the lengths the cop and legal mafia's will go to protect each others vile regimes.
Extract from the Daily Mirror in 2013
Hillsborough: Freemason cops banned from working on criminal probe into cover-up.
Police officers who are Freemasons have been banned from working on the criminal investigation into the Hillsborough cover-up.
The revelation adds weight to the theory that members of the secretive organisation suppressed the truth after 96 Liverpool fans died in 1989.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission took the unusual move after families of the football fans who died in the disaster demanded that no members of a lodge be involved.
All of the employees in the IPCC investigation have also been told they cannot be from South Yorkshire or Merseyside, where the tragedy occurred.
Former West Midlands Police officers have also been banned after their force carried out a review that led to the flawed inquest verdicts being quashed last year.
Officers from the force have also been accused of changing witness statements.
The probe into the police’s role on the day of the disaster – codenamed Operation Resolve – employs 170 people, including 70 officers. The latest review, led by former Durham chief constable Jon Stoddart, was expected to report soon but the team has been swamped with evidence and has to interview 237 officers who were on duty at the match.
A source close to the probe said: “We have been told that no Freemasons are allowed on the investigation.
“One theory at the time was that the whole conspiracy was covered up by the group’s members as there are so many Masons in the police.
“The families have raised concerns… so we have prohibited them from being part of the investigation team. The deadline that officers were working towards is impossible and the review’s findings will be delayed.”
An IPCC source confirmed that Freemasons and former officers from the three forces had been banned from the probe.
The investigation team, while independent from the fresh inquests into the deaths, is helping coroner Lord Justice Goldring to prepare for and carry out the inquests, set to start by March 3, 2014.
Hillsborough was Britain’s worst-ever sporting disaster. Thousands of fans were crushed on the Sheffield Wednesday ground’s Leppings Lane terrace during Liverpool’s 1989 FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest.
Last December verdicts of accidental death from the original Hillsborough inquest in March 1991 were quashed.
The action was taken after the Hillsborough Independent Panel reported that there had been a huge cover-up.
The IPCC has previously revealed that statements given by witnesses could have been changed by police.
Secret society pervades the establishment
The Freemasons is a “fraternal brotherhood” dating back to the 14th century. It started as an organisation to monitor the qualifications of stonemasons.
But in modern times the organisation is seen as an elitist group that has been dogged by allegations of corruption.
The all-male group, governed by the United Grand Lodge of England, has 250,000 members. Many figures in authority are Freemasons. The first US president, George Washington, and another leading American revolutionary, Benjamin Franklin, were Masons. Today a significant proportion of the Royal household are members, and the Duke of Kent is grand master of the UGLE.
Despite royal patronage, and their presence in the judiciary and the higher reaches of the City, the Masons deny being an underground arm of the Establishment.

Daily Mail: Greedy divorce lawyers stir up hatred to boost their fees, says Gary Lineker
Football legend divorced Danielle Bux for £400 using a simple online form
Gary Lineker has hit out at the divorce system, saying it is designed to cost couples a fortune and leads to them “hating each other”.
The Match of the Day host, 55, revealed in January he and second wife Danielle Bux , 36, were to amicably end their six-year marriage.
While the former football ace is thought to be worth around £20million, filing the divorce cost them just £400 using a government website to come to an agreeable settlement. But Lineker is appalled by the way divorces are generally carried out, saying: “It’s very easy to get married and very difficult to get divorced.
“And we know lawyers try to manipulate it to make you spend more money and basically end up hating each other.”
He said his solution would be to have a simpler way of divorcing. “There should be a mathematical equation that goes to the courts and they sort it out,” he told Radio Times.
Danielle is currently in Los Angeles where she hopes to boost her acting career. The former model has a 14-year-old daughter, Ella, from a previous relationship and has said she would like to have another baby.
But Lineker, who has four sons from his first marriage, was not keen on having more.

As Britain's longest reigning monarch turns 90, Kevin Maguire reveals why he won't be gushing with the rest of us
(Notice the compliant media still suggest they are talking on behalf of EVERYONE else a psychopathic trait)
Many happy returns to the 178,000 people celebrating a birthday but please spare me the gush over this embodiment of “something for nothing” in British life.
The state-orchestrated mass curtsey over our country’s Ruritanian relic will have a jealous Kim Jong-un machine-gunning his Generals, the tinpot tyrant demanding North Korea copy the obsequious propaganda hailing this country’s Dear Monarch who knows little about the lives of her subjects and probably cares even less.
Born into privilege and perpetuating privilege, the Queen’s role is to apply a royal gloss to grotesque inequality and greed with Forbes estimating her fortune at £275m.
(a widely inaccurate account of her vast wealth see link below for a more accurate figure)
To legitimise the unfairness of a roll of the DNA dice which condemns many to poverty, others to graft and a lucky few to a golden carriage ride.
To deploy deference as a weapon shielding the unearned loot of a ruling class, whether blue bloods or the corporate world’s robber barons.
My objection to the kowtowing isn’t the Queen ’s a nasty old lady, cruel to corgis and great-grandchildren.
Like most Britons, I’ve never met her. I’m unlikely ever to after irritating hubby Phil a while back by ignoring a flunkey’s instruction to bow in Buck House.
The happy returns extend to her as one of the 178,000 but the institution she represents belongs to the past and should dumped in the dustbin of history when she’s gone, Elizabeth II also Elizabeth the Last.
We should elect our head of state to meet and greet instead of cranky King Charles III being foisted on Britain.
To be followed by workshy Wills and simpering Kate, the Spencer Matthews and Kim Kardashian of the royal reality show, straining purposefully for the cameras to appear employed on another fabulous junket.
I don’t want to live in a Britain represented by hand-me-downs who must think the entire country smells of fresh paint, streets are paved in red carpets and the population waits silently in line to bend the knee or wave a little flag.
Electing a head of state is fundamental if we’re to call Britain a democracy and finally shake off the feudal family, whether we pick for the job a J K Rowling or, gawd, tax-avoiding billionaire Richard Branson or two-bit politician.
We Republicans will be ignored on Betty’s Birthday but the poll finding 17% want to axe the monarchy means there’ll be up to 11million of us silently spending our money face down and grumbling at the telly.
I admire how the Queen, with her German heritage, and Phil, a Prince of Greece and Denmark, prove migrants integrate successfully in Britain but its time to say goodbye to a Disney production way past its sell-by date with Elizabeth the Last.

Yes they may not be running around cutting our heads off but freemasons in Britain's judiciary have far more subtle, devious and dangerous methods of murdering without showing any physical damage. Presently the tory political scum have been doing the same with the poor and disabled with a draconian sanctioning system that has been pushing those already facing mental health problems over the edge by withdrawing the pittance of welfare that has barely been keeping the 'USELESS' eaters alive, as that is how HER Eton groomed gangsters view them.
British judges are the most expert at ONE thing and that is using the states crown powers to psychological torture and push divorcing men over the edge and why there are a long trail of dead bodies and broken men that are kept well away from the front pages of their controlled media for fear of showing just what is going on in the UK while all the media cameras are pointed away to the middle east to distract attention away from the carnage that is being wrought upon heterosexual men and their children the length and breadth of Britain.

Zionist Sheldon Adelson bankrolling America's political scumbags
Sheldon Adelson and his zionist cronies meet in Vegas to decide which political gangsters they can buy off
Las Vegas's zionist controller Sheldon Adelson's court appearance exposes tax avoidance globally
Do Americans know who really pulls the strings in the White House?
It was around 10:30 p.m. when Steve Jacobs rolled down the gravel driveway.
Jacobs stepped onto his porch and found the door still locked. It had only been a
few days since he had come home to find it mysteriously ajar.
When Jacobs sat down to work, however, he noticed his crate of files was missing. He headed to
the kitchen, opened the top of his coffee maker, and looked inside. The hard drive he'd stashed there was gone too.
A police officer soon arrived, checked the doors, dusted for fingerprints. He carefully wrapped the coffee
maker in a plastic bag and said he would forward it to the FBI.
Jacobs had his suspicions as to why his house had been burgled. For more than a year, he'd been locked in a protracted legal battle with one of the wealthiest men on Earth.* Jacobs had filed a wrongful-termination case, accusing his former boss of ordering him to perform "illegal activities." Could the burglary have been the desperate act of some yes-man or fixer, or even the gangsters he'd encountered while working in China? "I don't know who is behind it," Jacobs testified in a subsequent legal proceeding, admitting he had no facts to suggest it was his old employer. "I know who might have a benefit or interest in understanding what information I may have had."
It's a long way from a burglary in northeastern Florida to the battle for the White House, but there may be a connection: Jacobs' tale and the documents his lawsuit has brought to light—some of which were on the hard drive in the coffee maker—provide a rare window into the business dealings of Sheldon Adelson, the casino magnate and political megadonor who could have a bigger role in selecting the 2016 GOP nominee than millions of Republican voters.
Over the past five years, I've sought to gain a fuller view of this complicated figure in American politics. I've written or co-written several major investigative pieces about Adelson, interviewing scores of casino executives and law enforcement officials and amassing thousands of pages of documents, including troves of Adelson's legal transcripts and videotaped interviews. It has been a challenging process. Adelson has a track record of threatening to sue journalists. He sued one for describing him as "foul-mouthed." He sued a columnist from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, driving him into bankruptcy over a few ill-chosen words. He once went after my reporting with a retraction demand but dropped it after my editors refused to make any changes to the story.
Adelson has used his fortune to reshape right-wing politics in both America and Israel, establishing himself as a GOP kingmaker in the post-Citizens United era. In December, he backed a secretive $140 million purchase of the Review-Journal, putting Nevada's largest paper in the hands of its richest resident and a fixture of its biggest industry, and increasing his influence on Nevada's early presidential caucuses. And now, as the 2016 campaign swings into high gear, Adelson faces a long-standing Justice Department probe that could generate embarrassing headlines for the mogul and the candidates he backs.
All this is why Jacobs' case, due to go to trial in June, is so significant: The protracted litigation has illuminated just how Adelson built one of the world's largest fortunes through his casinos in Macau—a Chinese territory rife with corruption where, Jacobs' lawsuit alleges, Adelson not only tolerated, but sometimes even encouraged, illegal and unethical acts. In turn, Adelson has denied these accusations, describing Jacobs as a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for insubordination and failure to properly address some of the issues raised in his own lawsuit.
During the last presidential election, Adelson spent nearly $100 million directly (and reportedly another $50 million in undisclosed dark money) trying to thwart Barack Obama's reelection. That included $20 million that he and his wife spent backing Newt Gingrich's primary run and, after Gingrich dropped out of the race, another $30 million on a super-PAC supporting Mitt Romney. He gave another $23 million to American Crossroads, the super-PAC once led by Karl Rove. His dark- money contributions reportedly buoyed conservative organizations such as the Koch brothers' Americans for Prosperity.
And Adelson has an arguably greater political influence in Israel, where he founded the free daily Israel Hayom, reportedly spending tens of millions of dollars to bankroll it. Now the country's most widely read publication, Hayom serves as the house organ for Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu, who rode to reelection last year after stoking fears that "Arab voters are heading to the polls in droves." This year's Republican candidates, many of whom have made the pilgrimage to Las Vegas in what has become known as the "Adelson primary," know that the mogul's patronage depends on their positions and tone toward Israel.
A diminutive 82-year-old with a lumpy face and a puff of thinning red hair, Adelson is the 13th-richest man in the United States, worth more than $20 billion, according to Forbes. Though he made his initial fortune in Vegas, he joined the ranks of the superrich following his 2001 investment in Macau, a once run-down seaport an hour's ferry ride from Hong Kong that in the last decade has overshadowed Vegas to become the world's gambling capital. Adelson's casinos in Macau, a special administrative region of China, provide the majority of the revenue for his company, Las Vegas Sands.
But beneath Macau's glitz lurk organized crime, corruption, and a shadow banking system that has allegedly laundered billions of dollars for China's ruling elite. In 2013, the chair of Nevada's powerful Gaming Control Board told a federal commission that it was "common knowledge" that the lucrative VIP rooms in Macau casinos have "long been dominated by Asian organized crime." That same year, a federal commission cited a study finding that more than $200 billion in "ill-gotten funds are channeled through Macau each year."
Which raises the question: Is dirty money spent by corrupt Chinese officials at Macau casinos flowing into our elections, at least indirectly? "With Citizens United, there's an awful lot of money sloshing around in our political process," said Carolyn Bartholomew, vice chairman of the bipartisan US-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a congressional advisory body that produced a scathing report detailing Macau's vulnerability to money laundering by such officials. "People have a right to know whose money that is, and that the proceeds being spent in the political process are not from illegal and illicit activities."
The key to finding out may be Steve Jacobs' lawsuit. "This case will never be settled," Adelson has vowed, and he's kept his word through more than five years of bruising and reputation-staining proceedings. As the billionaire promised reporters in Macau, "When we win the case, we will go after him in a way that he won't forget."

| Bradley Birkenfeld claims CIA behind Panama Papers leak
Bradley Birkenfeld is the most significant financial whistleblower of all time, so you might think he'd be cheering on the disclosures in the new Panama Papers leaks. But today, Birkenfeld is raising questions about the source of the information that is shaking political regimes around the world.
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Birkenfeld, an American citizen, was a banker working at UBS in Switzerland when he approached the U.S. government with information on massive amounts of tax evasion by Americans with secret accounts in Switzerland. By the end of his whistleblowing career, Birkenfeld had served more than two years in a U.S. federal prison, been awarded $104 million by the IRS for his information and shattered the foundations of more than a century of Swiss banking secrecy.
In an exclusive interview Tuesday from Munich, Birkenfeld said he doesn't think the source of the 11 million documents stolen from a Panamanian law firm should automatically be considered a whistleblower like himself. Instead, he said, the hacking of the Panama City-based firm, called Mossack Fonseca, could have been done by a U.S. intelligence agency.
"The CIA I'm sure is behind this, in my opinion," Birkenfeld said.
Birkenfeld pointed to the fact that the political uproar created by the disclosures have mainly impacted countries with tense relationships with the United States. "The very fact that we see all these names surface that are the direct quote-unquote enemies of the United States, Russia, China, Pakistan, Argentina and we don't see one U.S. name. Why is that?" Birkenfeld said. "Quite frankly, my feeling is that this is certainly an intelligence agency operation."
Asked why the U.S. would leak information that has also been damaging to U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, a major American ally, Birkenfeld said the British leader was likely collateral damage in a larger intelligence operation.
"If you've got NSA and CIA spying on foreign governments they can certainly get into a law firm like this," Birkenfeld said. "But they selectively bring the information to the public domain that doesn't hurt the U.S. in any shape or form. That's wrong. And there's something seriously sinister here behind this."
The public relations office for the CIA did not immediately return a message for comment.
Birkenfeld also said that during his time as a Swiss banker, Mossack Fonseca was known as one piece of the vast offshore maze used by bankers and lawyers to hide money from tax authorities. But he also said that the firm that is at the center of the global scandal was also seen as a relatively small player in the overall offshore tax evasion business.
"We knew that firm very well in Switzerland. I certainly knew of it," Birkenfeld said.
But Mossack Fonseca was just one of a number of firms in Panama offering such services, he said. "The cost of doing business there was quite low, relatively speaking," he said. "So what you would have is Panama operating as a conduit to the Swiss banks and the trust companies to set up these facilities for clients around the world."

The other side of Tinseltown: Moving pictures show how 'riverside living' has a different meaning in America's homeless capital
There are an estimated 44,000 homeless people living in Los Angeles according to a recent survey into the problem
Hundreds risk their lives by living on the bed of the Los Angeles River or in an equally-dangerous storm drain
City officials want to eliminate homelessness within the next decade according to an ambitious new plan
Los Angeles, the City of Angels, is now known by a more sombre sobriquet - the homeless capital of America.
Living in the shadow of the world famous Hollywood sign, some 44,000 people survive without a proper home, many sleeping in cars, tents or in makeshift shacks.
According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, the down-and-out population has increased by as much as 20 per cent. Authorities have declared a state of emergency and are seeking $100million to deal with the crisis.
Many of the homeless live along the banks of the Los Angeles River, which flows from the San Fernando Valley to Long Beach, over a distance of almost 48 miles.
A major cluster of homeless live in Downtown LA, hiding under bridges or sleeping along railway lines.
An estimated 800 people live in LA's riverbeds and storm drains, who are at risk when the river floods.
The concrete-lined river is often used as a set for Hollywood blockbusters.
Earlier this year, the City announced a 10-year plan adopted by with the ambitious goal of ending LA's growing homelessness, includes hiring social workers, offering quality housing and building permanent housing.
In addition, Los Angeles County supervisors also agreed to release $100 million over several years ($42 million in the first 12 months) toward housing the homeless.
Homelessness is 'the most serious humanitarian crisis confronting our county today,' said county CEO Sachi Hamai.
Plans for funding the initiatives still must be adopted, with the city of Los Angeles scheduled to vote on its budget in April.
City Councilman Jose Huizar, who co-chairs the Homelessness and Poverty Committee, acknowledged that a series of past plans to reduce homelessness had failed.
Between 2013 and 2015, the number of homeless in Los Angeles County soared by 12.4 per cent, with the percent of those living in the street or in their car -- without access to emergency shelter -- soaring by 85 per cent.
Of the 44,000 homeless people living in the county, some 29,000 or two-thirds, sleep in the streets, tents or their cars, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.
The 2008-2009 economic crisis took a hefty toll on Californians, while housing inflation has drastically limited affordable options.
In addition, many homeless opt to live in Los Angeles due to its mild weather and social services, notably near Skid Row, where some 5,000 homeless live.
By comparison, the homeless population in New York, America's largest metropolis, is larger at 57,000 people, but 95 percent of them live in shelters or temporary housing funded by local authorities and the state.
Los Angeles County spends around $1 billion a year on medical, psychiatric and social welfare care for its homeless, not including police expenditures.
'A real bed is much less expensive than a jail bed or a hospital bed,' Phil Ansell, director of the county's Homeless Initiative, told the Los Angeles City Council.

| America's political mafia sign letter backing Israel at UN VIDEO
An overwhelming majority of USA lawmakers have called on President Barack Obama to veto UN resolutions
against Israel which they regard as biased.
Nearly 400 out of 435 members of the USA House of Representatives made the call in a formal letter to the
president. The letter said the UN action and international conferences cannot resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The lawmakers said direct talks are the only solution to the conflict.
This is while the USA and its allies have
made unsuccessful attempts in this regard. The letter comes as the UN Security Council is expected to vote on a
resolution next week which condemns the Israeli settlements in the occupied territories. Despite deep divisions,
USA Democrats and Republicans have thrown their weight behind the Israeli regime.

|American corporations have $1.4tn hidden in tax havens
Charity analysis of the 50 biggest US businesses claims Apple have $181bn held offshore, while General Electric has $119bn and Microsoft $108bn
FULL ARTICLE HERE
US corporate giants such as Apple, Walmart and General Electric have stashed $1.4tn (£980bn) in tax havens, despite receiving trillions of dollars in taxpayer support, according to a report by anti-poverty charity Oxfam.
The sum, larger than the economic output of Russia, South Korea and Spain, is held in an “opaque and secretive network” of 1,608 subsidiaries based offshore, said Oxfam.
The charity’s analysis of the financial affairs of the 50 biggest US corporations comes amid intense scrutiny of tax havens following the leak of the Panama Papers.
And the charity said its report, entitled Broken at the Top was a further illustration of “massive systematic abuse” of the global tax system.
Technology giant Apple, the world’s second biggest company, topped Oxfam’s league table, with some $181bn held offshore in three subsidiaries.
Boston-based conglomerate General Electric, which Oxfam said has received $28bn in taxpayer backing, was second with $119bn stored in 118 tax haven subsidiaries.
Computing firm Microsoft was third with $108bn, in a top 10 that also included pharmaceuticals giant Pfizer, Google’s parent company Alphabet and Exxon Mobil, the largest oil company not owned by an oil-producing state.
Oxfam contrasted the $1.4tn held offshore with the $1tn paid in tax by the top 50 US firms between 2008 and 2014.
It pointed out that the companies had also enjoyed a combined $11.2tn in federal loans, bailouts and loan guarantees during the same period.
Overall, the use of tax havens allowed the US firms to reduce their effective tax rate on $4tn of profits from the US headline rate of 35% to an average of 26.5% between 2008 and 2014.
The charity said this had helped firms spend billions on an “army” of lobbyists calling for greater state support in the form of loans, bailouts and guarantees, funded by taxpayers.
The top 50 US firms spent $2.6bn between 2008 and 2014 on lobbying the US government, Oxfam said.
“For every $1 spent on lobbying, these 50 companies collectively received $130 in tax breaks and more than $4,000 in federal loans, loan guarantees and bailouts,” said Oxfam.
Robbie Silverman, senior tax adviser at Oxfam said: “Yet again we have evidence of a massive systematic abuse of the global tax system.
“We can’t go on with a situation where the rich and powerful are not paying their fair share of tax, leaving the rest of us to foot the bill.
“Governments across the globe must come together now to end the era of tax havens.”
Oxfam estimates that tax avoidance by US corporations costs the world’s largest economy some $111bn a year, but said it was also fuelling the global wealth divide by draining $100bn from the poorest countries.
“Tax dodging practised by corporations and enabled by federal policymakers contributes to dangerous inequality that is undermining our social fabric and hindering economic growth,” the report said.
Oxfam also singled out British overseas territories such as Bermuda for their popularity with US firms seeking to slash their tax bill by “profit-shifting”.
In 2012, said Oxfam, US firms reported $80bn of profit in Bermuda, more than their combined reported profits in Japan, China, Germany and France, four of the world’s five largest economies.
The charity called on the US government to pass the Stop Tax Haven Abuse Act, including a requirement for firms to report their tax contribution on a country-by-country basis.
Country-by-country reporting has been recommended by a host of non-governmental organisations and charities to prevent companies from artificially shifting their income out of the poorest countries.
|Dozens of assassinations by American cops ruled justified without public being notified
Dozens of killings by police in the US are being ruled justified without the public being notified, according to a Guardian study that sheds new light on the lack of official transparency surrounding the use of lethal force by law enforcement officers.
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Officers involved in one in every six deaths recorded during the first quarter of 2015 have a year later been cleared of wrongdoing and returned to work despite no announcements being made by authorities or local media reports appearing.
If this rate is maintained, almost 200 deaths in 2015 will be officially approved away from the public eye, despite the sharply increased scrutiny of shootings and other lethal encounters by police officers over the 18 months since unrest gripped Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old.
At the same time, another one in four deaths at the hands of police officers in early 2015 remain unresolved and are still under investigation more than a year later, restricting the information available to members of the public, including families seeking answers about why relatives were shot or subjected to other deadly force.
Professor Samuel Walker, a criminal justice expert at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, described the figures as “alarming and unacceptable”. “It does not serve the interests of justice and creates community distrust,” he said.
The findings emerged from a new review of data obtained for The Counted, an ongoing project recording all deaths caused by police officers in the US. The federal government has kept no comprehensive count itself, leading to sharp criticism.
Last year, the project prompted the Department of Justice to embark on a new program to collect the same information, drawing on the Guardian’s data and mirroring its methodology. It also pushed the FBI to pledge that it would improve its own discredited system for counting homicides by police, which relies on police departments voluntarily submitting data.
The project also involves an unprecedented effort to monitor the outcome of investigations into every deadly case – whether the actions of police officers were ruled justified, a criminal prosecution is under way, or the death remains under investigation.
Of 289 people killed in the first three months of 2015, 202 cases have now been ruled justified or accidental. But in 51 of these, no public statements announcing the decision appear to have been made by authorities involved, and no local media reports could be found through extensive online, public records and media archives searches.
Multiple prosecutors confirmed they had not actively informed the public of the decisions, taken either by themselves or by a grand jury bringing a “no bill” against officers. “We do not have a formal policy on such announcements,” William Lee Hon, the district attorney in Polk County, Texas, said of the decision to rule justified the fatal police shooting of Eugene Smith in Onalaska in March last year. “Depending upon the level of public and media interest, we may or may not send out a release.”
In another 71 cases of deaths caused by law enforcement officers during the first quarter of 2015, the authorities involved either confirmed that inquiries continued more than a year later, or declined to give details of any developments in the case despite at least three requests from reporters to do so.
‘Prosecutors have an obligation to the public’
Ten police officers have so far been charged with crimes relating to deaths in the first quarter of 2015, following a sharp increase in prosecutions that has been widely noted. So far, one conviction has resulted from these cases: Jason Kenny, a former deputy in Chatham County, Georgia, was found guilty of cruelty to an inmate following the death of Matthew Ajibade from injuries sustained during a violent restraint in jail.
Four officers were reprimanded or fired from their jobs in relation to cases in early 2015. One acquittal has also been registered: Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, police officer Lisa Mearkle was found not guilty of third-degree murder and manslaughter for fatally shooting the unarmed David Kassick in the back as he lay on the ground after fleeing a traffic stop.
While much of the public and media attention has been focused on cases taken to the courts by prosecutors, a strikingly large number of other cases have been concluded without official action or comment, even on occasions when the circumstances or actions of officers were sharply questioned. Four such cases involved the killing of people who were completely unarmed and four involved people accused of using their vehicles as weapons.
One of the unarmed people killed, Joshua Garcia, refused to stop when a deputy in Lynn County, Texas, tried to pull him over. After a chase, and a crash, the 24-year-old was arrested, handcuffed and placed in a police car.
Officers alleged that as they processed his arrest and inspected his car, however, Garcia managed to bring his cuffed hands around in front of him from behind his back, and tried to drive the police vehicle away. The officers opened fire on him and Garcia was fatally struck. Garcia’s mother, Delia, said the officers were found to have fired 14 times.
Nothing has been stated publicly about this unusual case since Garcia’s death 15 months ago. Sheriff’s lieutenant Pete Vallejo said in an interview, however, that the shooting had in fact been ruled justified and the deputies had returned to work. “Generally we don’t make media releases if the deputy involved is cleared,” said Vallejo, a spokesman for the department. “That’s just the current sheriff’s policy.” The local district attorney’s office did not return several requests for comment.
Delia Garcia said she had not been aware the shooting had been ruled justified until she was contacted by the Guardian this week. She said she received the original police incident reports from an attorney who was courting her as a potential client.
“The shooting just could not have happened the way they say it did,” Delia Garcia said. “It doesn’t make sense. But no one has called me, no one has told me anything since a deputy arrived at my house on the day it happened and said there had been a ‘slight incident’.”
Philip Stinson, an assistant professor at Bowling Green State University, Ohio, who monitors police-involved deaths, said regional authorities often allowed cases involving killings by police to be forgotten – either by drawing out the process or quietly concluding it – because of their incendiary nature.

“District attorneys typically don’t want to prosecute police officers if they can avoid it,” said Stinson. “There is an inherent conflict of interest in that they have to rely on their local law enforcement colleagues at other times, so they’re reluctant to deal with these cases.” Amid increased pressure on prosecutors from some quarters of the public to act against officers for excessive force incidents, however, often “they’re not going to issue a press release saying we declined to prosecute”, said Stinson.
Other analysts said prosecutors may simply decline to announce decisions by them or grand jurors to not bring charges against officers for the same reason as with any other defendants. “I do think it’s a problem, though prosecutors never announce declinations,” said Katherine Levine, an assistant professor at New York University law school. Levine argued, however, that “because of the nature of police killings, prosecutors have an obligation to the public that they don’t in others”.
Stinson said many district attorneys remained quiet about non-prosecutions mainly so as not to damage an overall prosecution success rate to which they can point during their re-election campaigns. “It’s the great unknown with prosecutors,” said Stinson. “If something is no-billed in most jurisdictions, they wouldn’t put it out there, because they don’t want people thinking they are bringing forward cases and failing to get indictments.”
Authorities in Arizona were found by the review to have discreetly cleared officers over their involvement in 10 separate deaths in the first three months of 2015 – more than in any other state. “There was no press release,” officer Kevin Watts of Scottsdale police department said of the decision to clear two officers for the fatal shooting of Dewayne Carr in January last year. Carr, an African American 42-year-old, was accused of reversing his car at a detective’s vehicle during an operation to arrest him for credit card fraud. “There is no policy on what is announced,” said Watts. “It is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.”
A spokesman for the Maricopa County attorney’s office, which handled the Carr case and several others from the 10 in Arizona, did not respond to a request for comment.
Six more cases ruled justified that went unannounced were found in Texas, and five in Oklahoma. “We do not have a policy on that,” Lieutenant Paco Balderamma of the Oklahoma City police department said regarding the public disclosure of decisions to not prosecute officers, adding that this was done “as needed”.
Four cases each were found to have been cleared without announcement in California, Florida and Alabama. Two concluded cases were found in Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and Maryland – “typically, we do not make an announcement of declination,” said TJ Smith of Baltimore police department – along with one each in Alaska, Iowa, Kentucky, Virginia, Mississippi, Utah, New Mexico, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee.
In the Tennessee case – that of James Greenwell, 31, in Memphis – authorities appeared not to have announced a finding that Greenwell in fact killed himself, rather than having been shot dead by officers on the porch of his parents’ house, as was said at the time of his death in March last year. Greenwell was widely reported to have been killed by officers, and as a result appeared in both Guardian and Washington Post databases of killings by police. “This was a suicide,” said officer Louis Brownlee. “The medical examiner determined Greenwell shot himself.”
Several police departments stressed that to their minds, responsibility for any announcement lay exclusively with the office of the prosecutor who cleared the officers involved, which then decided not to make public statements.
“We generally do not prepare press releases on other agencies’ investigations,” said Maj Johnny Greenwood of the Putnam County, Florida, sheriff’s office, regarding the clearing of deputies who shot Andrew Williams, 48. Williams was shot dead in his car during a chaotic drugs sting operation in March last year. The deputies, who alleged that Williams reversed his car toward them, were cleared by state investigators and the district attorney.
Dozens of incidents remain unresolved
At the same time, however, dozens more deadly incidents involving police officers across the US are still unresolved more than 12 months after they took place. In at least 15 cases involving the deaths of completely unarmed people, authorities confirmed that the investigations remained open more than a year later, or declined to give any status update when asked several times by reporters.
Sheldon Haleck was unarmed when he was killed in a violent encounter with police officers in Honolulu, Hawaii, in March 2015. More than a year later, a spokeswoman for the police department said, the case is still “pending review by the prosecutor’s office”. Investigative work was done by the Honolulu police department itself.
Haleck, a national guard veteran who had suffered from PTSD since working to clear bodies of people killed by the 2004 tsunami in Thailand, was wandering in a street while high on methamphetamine. When he did not obey orders from officers to move to the sidewalk, Haleck, 38, was shocked with a Taser, pepper-sprayed and roughly restrained.
A medical examiner quickly declared his death a homicide in a ruling that was not publicly disclosed for months. Basic police incident reports were only given to Haleck’s parents, William and Verdell, in recent weeks following persistent pressure from their attorneys.
“It’s very stressful,” William, a former senior police officer himself, said in an interview. “You’re dealing with unknowns and what-ifs and asking: ‘What did they actually do to my son?’ There’s no closure, no information from anyone. They’re stalling in giving us reports that were probably completed within two or three days.”
Dave Korga, a spokesman for the Honolulu prosecuting attorney, declined to say when the Haleck case was expected to be concluded, nor how its duration compared with other cases handled by their office. “We’ll take the time we need to make the right decision,” said Koga.
Video footage of part of the deadly encounter, which was recorded by one of the officers’ Tasers, was released by police without warning later last year. Haleck’s parents were given no warning and saw it like any other viewer of the local news bulletin. “How would you like to see your son die on TV?” said William.
“It was heartbreaking and devastating,” said Verdell.
Stinson, the police use-of-force expert at Bowling Green University, said the process “shouldn’t take that long”. He cited as a problematic example the indictment for murder last August of Adam Torres, a former police officer in Fairfax County, Virginia, over a fatal shooting almost two years earlier, following apparent bureaucratic maneuvering behind the scenes.
“This is a very professional organization in a sophisticated county government,” Stinson said of Fairfax. “It makes me wonder what is going on elsewhere.”
An extended inquiry period can frequently mean that pertinent disclosures are made long after the glare of public attention has moved on. Robert Zapf, the district attorney in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, announced that the fatal shooting by police of Aaron Siler, 26, almost a year earlier, was justified.
Torres had been on his first day back at work following 10 days of leave after he shot a 64-year-old Vietnam veteran, who was allegedly armed with a knife. Siler, who was being pursued over a probation violation, was said to have ignored the officer’s orders to get down and even told him to shoot.
Zapf waited until officer Pablo Torres was cleared in the shooting before revealing that Siler was in effect unarmed when he was killed. Authorities initially told the public that Siler was killed when he “armed himself” following a car chase. This was interpreted by some media outlets to mean that Siler was wielding a firearm, a knife or a metal pipe.
Only a year later did the prosecutor tell the public that Siler was in fact carrying an empty plastic bucket. “It is conceivable that had officer Torres not fired his weapon when he did, Siler would have attacked officer Torres [and] caused him or the civilian witnesses great bodily harm,” said Zapf.

|Homeless in California’s redwoods - the 'land of the lost'
Amid the towering redwoods north of San Francisco, there is a forest trail littered with clothing – T-shirts,
bras, shoes. It leads to a clearing where a primitive fence made of branches encloses a tent and a jumble of dirty
belongings. Toni Lynn Evans, barefoot and with the traces of purple varnish on her toenails, emerges.
“I call it the plateau, the land of the lost,” she said of the backcountry she calls home.
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Dozens more tents, hidden among the trees and clinging to muddy hillsides, dot the landscape in and around
the bucolic resort town of Guerneville. Some 240 people are thought to be homeless in a region with a
population of about 12,000, according to the county, meaning that the per capita rate is more than 10
times the US average. They have built semi-permanent communities, clearing paths and carving steps into
the slopes. They use batteries for power, propane tanks for heat and cooking.
Would they prefer to be elsewhere? “I won’t live in a city,” Evans said. “People age faster there. If you
ever look at the people down in San Francisco, a 19-year-old looks 35. Up here, you’ll see a 35-year-old look 19.”
Her term for it: “the shitty city”.
Homelessness is commonly regarded as an urban ill, but less than half of the US homeless population lives in
the country’s biggest cities. In tiny communities such as Guerneville and its rural surrounds, the scale of the
problem can be overwhelming.
Evans, 54, has pale skin, bright blue eyes, sipping primly from a bottle of whiskey mixed with beer, she gave a tour, first of her former, rat-infested campsite near the river. “A couple little tiny ones would curl up behind me under my blankets, under my butt, to sleep,” she said. “Over there we don’t have no rats.”
After taking a few drags on a cigarette, she tapped it into an ashtray that she carried around and balanced on logs. Vanishing into the trees for a while, she reappeared with a blind dog on a leash; it did its business in the ivy, which Evans left there. She explained the lack of shoes or socks: “My feet get too hot.”
Born in San Francisco, Evans used to work as a housekeeper and in restaurants and has been homeless since
about 2012, after her mother died and the home they shared went into foreclosure. One day, she says, she found
herself standing in the driveway surrounded by all the furnishings. Much of it was stolen: computer, stereo, a
box containing her mother’s ashes.
She has had a mini-stroke and experiences memory loss. “I’m really tired. I’m more tired than I should be for my age,”
she said. “I will not survive another winter, that’s for sure.”
Once a logging town, Guerneville draws visitors seeking a dose of small-town Americana. Its main street has ice cream
shops and galleries. The river is perfect for swimming
and inner-tubing. But soaring property prices and a tight market mean that those on the bottom income rungs, as
well as the unstable, are in a precarious position. Most of the homeless are said to have previously been housed
in the area, their numbers relatively unchanged since the beginning of the recession.
Although some locals are angry about the state of affairs, many are generous with food and other necessities. In the winter months, the homeless can take shelter in the town veterans hall where they can make a bed for themselves on the hardwood floor. And there are plans to build a facility combining a year-round, 30-bed shelter, a medical center and services including, among other things, substance-abuse counselling and computer access – astonishing for a place that seems so out-of-the-way. But with only limited space, the project, while much-needed, is not an immediate fix.
Mark Emmett, who founded the Guerneville Community Alliance,
which has a focus on local homelessness, first visited some of the encampments last year. “You take a 20ft by 20ft area that’s full of bicycles, car batteries – it’s almost complete sensory overload, and you have people basically living in squalor,” he said. “It’s just something that you don’t see in America.”
However confounding the situation, residents’ concerns are often practical and focused on the byproducts of lives lived in the open: plastic bags, food packaging, human waste. In 2014, a man named Chris Brokate, who runs a janitorial business, began leading cleanups. This year alone he says he has helped carry out more than 60,000 pounds of trash.
Brokate recently drove to a spot known as Cosy Cove, a steep, thin strip of hillside between the road and the river. The scattered tents are all but invisible to passing cars, deep in the shade of redwoods so lofty that their crowns cannot be discerned. A man missing many teeth named Nicolai Lisiukoff popped up, asked for some trash bags, and led Brokate back along the precarious path.
“This is our winter home,” Lisiukoff said, gesturing to some tents that were halfway down, out of the way of floods. He stopped at another perched high above the river, a few feet from the edge. Despite the netting that had been installed, one false step would mean a tumble into the current. His girlfriend, Barbara Tribett, sat on a camper chair. There was a stove, pans that they cleaned with river water, a mug rack leaning in the dirt. Mold, rats and ticks were a nuisance, they said.
“Where and what you guys do with your bathroom,” Brokate began, delicately, “let’s start talking about how we can make that situation better.”
Tribett said she used double-bags. “Kenny’s hole was right there,” she added, referring to another resident and pointing to an indentation a few feet from their encampment.
“That’s too close to the river,” Brokate said. Not least because sunbathers on the other bank could be glimpsed through the leaves.
Lisiukoff said he was indifferent as to whether he remained living in the understory. Evans, meanwhile, hopes to escape. Sitting inside her tent, she carefully cleaned her face with wet wipes and smiled. A large butterfly flashed through the sunshine and above her tumbledown habitation. “You should come back when I got a good a day,” she said. “A hair and makeup day.”
|Benefit fraud or tax evasion: row over the Tories’ targets
David Cameron was confronted in the Commons on Wednesday with figures showing that thousands more government inspectors are employed to tackle benefits fraud than deal with tax evasion by the wealthiest UK residents.
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Angus Robertson, the Scottish National party’s leader in Westminster, asked the prime minister why 3,250 department of work and pensions (DWP) staff have been assigned to investigate welfare fraud, while 300 specialise in dealing with the rich.
“Surely we should care equally about people abusing the tax system and those abusing the benefit system?” Robertson asked during prime minister’s questions. “Why has this government had ten times more staff dealing often with the poorest in society abusing benefits than with the super-rich evading their taxes?”
In fact the government confirmed on Wednesday that the ranks of DWP benefits investigators have swelled to 3,700 – a higher number than the one quoted by Robertson, and up from 2,600 in February last year.
That compares with 700 people who work at HM Revenue and Customs in the two units whose job it is to investigate the wealthiest 500,000 people living in the UK.
David Cameron was jeered when he admitted the figures cited by Robertson would need to be examined, but retorted “they sound to me entirely bogus”. He added: “The predominant job of the DWP is to make sure that people receive their benefits. The predominant job of HMRC is to make sure people pay their taxes”.
Benefits fraud costs the government £1.3bn a year, according to official statistics, while the gap between tax owed and tax paid is put at £34bn a year by officials.
MPs on the public accounts committee said this figure fails to take into account the losses to aggressive tax avoidance schemes of the kind previously criticised by the prime minister. Labour puts the tax gap at £120bn. Shadow chancellor John McDonnell has claimed much of the missing revenue could be collected if HMRC had more funding.
However, the government says it is spending an extra £1.3bn on the HMRC, allowing it to acquire more data and invest in more technology and tools. A further £800m is to be spent on more expert analysts and on expanding compliance and fraud investigation teams to tackle tax dodgers more robustly.
A spokesman for HMRC said that it had a total of 26,000 investigators and added that it was “absurd” to regard tax collectors focused on the richest Britons as working in isolation from the department’s thousands of investigators, lawyers and other experts.
“The suggestion that only 300 HMRC people are working against evasion by the wealthy is plain wrong. We have over 26,000 people working right across the range of our enforcement and compliance business focused on stopping tax evasion, avoidance and fraud, day in, day out. The dedicated units referred to are important elements of that work but are far from the sum total.”
Jeremy Corbyn opened prime minister’s questions by attacking the Conservative record on tax, with all six of his questions used to highlight issues raised by the Panama Papers, a leak of 11.5m documents published last week by the Guardian and other media partners around the world. “The number of people out there collecting taxes is important,” said the Labour leader.
HMRC’s “affluent unit”, launched in October 2011, now employs 320 investigators, focusing on individuals with assets of more than £1m and income of more than £150,000 a year.
The tax office’s “high net worth” unit, which has a further 400 investigators , focuses on the estimated 6,200 UK residents worth more than £20m in assets.
Set up under Labour in 2009, the high net worth division advertised its arrival with welcome letters setting out details of how it aimed to provide an “enhanced relationship” with its “customers”.
Its role, according to HMRC’s website, is to “build relationships to better understand these customers and make it easier for them to pay the right amount of tax,” by providing “a single point of contact and a holistic approach to their tax affairs”.
Based on the Australian model, which was said to have raised large sums in additional revenues, the high net worth unit brought in an additional £414m last year, HMRC claims, taking the total since it was created to well over £1bn.
Supporters describe the approach as friendly, but with a “sting in the tail”, while critics claim that the collaborative tone is simply a reflection of the fact that for the super-rich, the amount of tax paid has become to some extent a matter of personal choice.
John Caudwell, the billionaire founder of retailer Phones4U, described the UK tax system last week as “open to be abused”. Reacting to the Panama Papers, Caudwell said the tax rules were “a little bit vague” and there were “grey areas” between acceptable tax reduction and aggressive avoidance.
“What we need is very, very clear guidance from the government as to what tax avoidance will not be tolerated,” he told BBC radio. “You almost need a list of activity that is acceptable like ISAs and everything else being very heavily penalised for incorrect behaviour.”
HMRC has slashed its headcount by half in the decade since the reorganisation that replaced the Inland Revenue, and now employs 56,000 people. With extra government funding from the Summer Budget 2015, HMRC added that it was acquiring more data, investing in more technology and tools, and spending £800m in recruiting more expert analysts.

Black Widow: the rosy-cheeked killer is back on the streets
An 80-year-old woman dubbed Canada’s “Black Widow” has been arrested after breaching the conditions of her release by using the internet at a library in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
A police spokeswoman said Melissa Ann Shepard was arrested on Monday. Shepard gained notoriety for killing and poisoning several men who were her intimate partners and has a lengthy history of offences.
The arrest comes less than a month after Shepard was released from prison. She served just under three years for spiking newlywed husband Fred Weeks’s coffee with tranquillisers in 2012. Weeks survived after falling ill during a trip to Newfoundland.
Shepard served two years in prison in the early 1990s for the manslaughter of her second husband, Gordon Stewart, whom she drugged and ran over twice with a car.

The boss of Revenue & Customs (HMRC), the government department overseeing a £10m inquiry into the Panama Papers, was a partner at a top City law firm that acted for Blairmore Holdings and other offshore companies named in the leak.
Edward Troup, executive chair of HMRC since April, is a former partner at Simmons & Simmons, whose clients have included the Panama-registered fund created by David Cameron’s father, Ian.
The law firm’s name appears on dozens of emails and documents in the Panama Papers in connection with a number of companies registered with Mossack Fonseca, the offshore agent at the centre of the scandal, although HMRC said Troup had not personally dealt with the firm. Some correspondence dates back to 2003, when Troup was still a partner. The first emails to Mossack Fonseca regarding Blairmore date from 2005. It is understood that Simmons & Simmons was advising Blairmore from 2001.
There is no suggestion of wrongdoing by Troup, Simmons & Simmons or any of its clients, and nothing in the files that indicates Troup personally advised any offshore company registered with Mossack Fonseca.
Cameron announced on Saturday that HMRC would be working with the National Crime Agency to lead a “world-class” taskforce to investigate allegations of tax dodging and money laundering brought to light by the leak of 11.5 million files from the Panama law firm. A unit with initial funding of £10m is being set up, which will also bring together specialists from the Serious Fraud Office and the Financial Conduct Authority. Officials have already started investigating some 700 current leads with a link to Panama.
The revelation comes as:
• Cameron prepares to make a statement to parliament in which he will reject any suggestion of wrongdoing by himself or his father and insist that his government “has done more than any other to take action against corruption in all its forms”.
• He will announce plans for companies to be held criminally liable if they fail to stop their employees from facilitating tax evasion, in the run-up to an anti-corruption summit that he will host in London next month.
• Labour called for a public inquiry into the Panama revelations and a change to parliamentary rules to make it mandatory for MPs to publish details of any offshore holdings.
• There were suggestions that all MPs should publish their tax details after the unprecedented decision by Cameron to do so over the weekend.
• A Treasury source insisted that the chancellor, George Osborne, had “never had any offshore shareholdings” and said his income and interests were straightforward but that he had no plans to publish his financial records.
Troup, who described taxation as “legalised extortion” in a 1999 newspaper article, built a career advising corporations on how to reduce their tax bills before leaving Simmons & Simmons to join the civil service in 2004.
Simmons & Simmons is reported to be among a number of legal practices that received letters last week from the legal watchdog asking them to inspect their files for connections to Mossack Fonseca. The Solicitors Regulation Authority is understood to have written to Simmons & Simmons asking it to carry out a review. Troup worked at the firm from 1997 until 2004, when he left to join the Treasury as head of corporate tax policy. He joined HMRC in 2012 to oversee large corporate tax settlements.
While working in the City, Troup led the opposition to reforms put forward by Gordon Brown to curb corporate tax avoidance in 1999, putting out a press release headed: “City lawyers call on government to withdraw proposals to tackle tax avoidance.” He criticised the proposed laws for giving “wide-reaching” powers to the Inland Revenue.
The leaked Panama Papers appear to show Simmons & Simmons offices in London and Hong Kong were registered as clients or intermediaries with Mossack Fonseca. This means they were able to request certificates or new incorporations on behalf of the ultimate owners of companies. Usually, Mossack Fonseca did not deal with company owners directly, but preferred to handle business through intermediaries such as lawyers and accountants.
For Blairmore, the Panama-registered fund run by Ian Cameron, there is a long string of emails regarding the fund’s decision to stop using bearer shares – anonymous financial instruments that belong to the person holding them in their hand, much like banknotes. Though they are legal, bearer shares have been abolished in many countries because they have been used by mobsters and tax evaders for money laundering. There is no suggestion that Blairmore was using them for any illegal purpose, and they were common among offshore funds at the time.
In 2008, when Blairmore was considering a change of jurisdiction, Simmons & Simmons asked Mossack Fonseca for advice on the benefits of other tax havens. An email dated 2 April 2008 stated: “Blairmore Holdings Inc are considering moving their Panama fund out of Panama into either the Cayman Islands or Bermuda. We have been instructed to prepare a memo on the fund industry in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.”
The fund was founded in the early 1980s and still exists today. The Guardian has confirmed that in 30 years, Blairmore has never paid a penny of tax in the UK on its profits. There is no suggestion that Blairmore operated illegally.
An HMRC spokesperson said: “Before joining the civil service in 2004, Edward Troup had a successful career in the private sector, during the course of which he dealt with many companies. He can confirm that he never had any dealings with Mossack Fonseca, was unaware of the company until recently, and that none of the individuals or organisations named so far were clients that he advised. Edward Troup’s role in HMRC has never involved responsibility for operational activities or direct dealings with companies on their tax affairs. In any event, the governance in place at HMRC means that any commissioners who have a potential conflict of interest would exclude themselves from any investigation or settlement involving a taxpayer with which they had had dealings in their previous careers.”
Simmons & Simmons did not respond to a request for comment.
| The 1% hide their money offshore – then use it to corrupt our democracy
A SIMPLE PLAN
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Over the past 72 hours, you have seen our political establishment operating at a level of panic rarely equalled in postwar history. Britain’s prime minister has had yanked out of him some of his most intimate financial details.
Complete strangers now know how much he’s inherited so far from his mum and dad, and the offshore investments from which he’s profited. Yesterday he even took the unprecedented step of revealing the taxes he’d paid over the past six years. Leaders of other parties have responded by summarily publishing their own HMRC returns.
In contemporary Britain, where one’s extramarital affairs are more readily discussed in public than one’s tax affairs, this is jaw-dropping stuff.
And it will not stop here. Whatever the lazy shorthand being used by some commentators, David Cameron has not released his tax returns, but merely a summary certified by an accountants’ firm. That halfway house will hardly be enough. If Jeremy Corbyn, other senior politicians and the press keep up this level of attack, then within days more details of the prime minister’s finances will emerge. Nor will the flacks of Downing Street be able to maintain their lockdown on disclosing how many cabinet members have offshore interests: the ministers themselves will break ranks. Indeed, a few are already beginning to do so.
But the risk is that all this will descend into a morass of semi-titillating detail: a string of revelations about who gave what to whom, and whether he or she then declared it to the Revenue. The story will become about “handling” and “narrative” and individual culpability. That will be entertaining for those who like to point fingers, perplexing for those too busy to engage in the detail – and miss the wider truth revealed by the leak which forced all this into public discussion.
Because at root, the Panama Papers are not about tax. They’re not even about money. What the Panama Papers really depict is the corruption of our democracy.
Following on from LuxLeaks, the Panama Papers confirm that the super-rich have effectively exited the economic system the rest of us have to live in. Thirty years of runaway incomes for those at the top, and the full armoury of expensive financial sophistication, mean they no longer play by the same rules the rest of us have to follow. Tax havens are simply one reflection of that reality. Discussion of offshore centres can get bogged down in technicalities, but the best definition I’ve found comes from expert Nicholas Shaxson who sums them up as: “You take your money elsewhere, to another country, in order to escape the rules and laws of the society in which you operate.” In so doing, you rob your own society of cash for hospitals, schools, roads…
But those who exited our societies are now also exercising their voice to set the rules by which the rest of us live. The 1% are buying political influence as never before. Think of the billionaire Koch brothers, whose fortunes will shape this year’s US presidential elections. In Britain, remember the hedge fund and private equity barons, who in 2010 contributed half of all the Conservative party’s election funds – and so effectively bought the Tories their first taste of government in 18 years.
To flesh out the corrosion of democracy that is happening, you need to go to a Berlin-born economist called Albert Hirschman, a giant in modern economic thinking. Hirschman died in 2012 at the age of 97, but it’s his concepts that really set in context what’s so disturbing about the Panama Papers.
Hirschman argued that citizens could protest against a system in one of two ways: voice or exit. Fed up with your local school? Then you can exercise your voice and take it up with the headteacher. Alternatively, you can exit and take your child to a private school.
In Britain and in America, the super-rich have broken Hirschman’s law – they are at one and the same time exercising economic exit and political voice. They can have their tax-free cake and eat it.
What the past few days have confirmed is that David Cameron is effectively in the Downing Street branch of the super-rich. That he himself is part of the 1% is beyond dispute. His father was a senior stockbroker who was worth an estimated £10m. Newspapers so often bandy about the million unit that readers can get inured to its true significance. But if at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day you were lucky enough to get one pound coin every single second, it would still take 114 days to amass £10m. You would even now be waiting till Sunday week to collect the whole amount.
What have the super-rich got for their investment in British politics since 2010? Cuts in personal taxes, invitations from George Osborne to advise on overhauling corporation taxes, the security of knowing that their tax havens will be treated with due leniency.
In my politics lessons, we were taught that Britain was a representative democracy. But what 30 years of plutocracy have brought is an era of un-representative democracy. With a few exceptions, our politicians no longer resemble, nor do they work for us. Amid a crisis in the rental market, you have a housing minister, Brandon Lewis, who runs a private rental portfolio. You have a former investment banker, Sajid Javid, now claiming to do his best by the steel industry. And you have a super-rich prime minister who vows he’ll take on tax havens, all the while blocking any serious attempt to do so.
|The internet has increased information leaks and transparency
Mass media try and take credit for leaks that they only published after they were put up online.
(Previously their media lawyers would have shut them all down)

Back in 2009, the world was a more innocent place, somehow. Isis was a river in Oxford. Tinder was a twinkle in a right-swiper’s eye. And Donald Trump was just another reality TV star.
Then in May of that year, the Daily Telegraph published a huge trove of MPs’ expense claims, obtained from leaked computer disks. The impact was immediate, and incredible.
Six government ministers resigned. Four MPs ended up in prison. Dozens more decided not to stand for re-election. The entire expenses system was overhauled. Perhaps most significantly of all, trust in politicians fell even further, with consequences that are still being felt today. Indeed, a recent survey commissioned by this newspaper found that three-quarters of Londoners still think MPs haven’t done enough to clean up politics since the expenses scandal.
Fast forward to 2016 and the idea that a data leak might spark big political and social changes is hardly a surprise. We’ve got used to previously secretive institutions being hit by data breaches, including intelligence agencies (via Edward Snowden), diplomats (Wiki-Leaks), corporations (Sony, etc) — and now financial services, thanks to the so-called Panama Papers released to the world last week.
If you take a step back, you see how with each of these examples (and others), the internet is dissolving many of the traditional information asymmetries that used to exist in our society. We used to take it for granted that governments had access to lots of information that we’d never see — and it was the same for other powerful institutions.
Thanks to the internet, massive amounts of information can be shared instantly, free of charge, and it’s having a profound effect. And of course, digital technology is becoming more advanced all the time. The amount of data released in the Panama Papers leak was more than 1,000 times larger than the WikiLeaks release of diplomatic cables in 2010, and included around 10 million documents.
Fifty years ago it would be almost unimaginable to be able to leak this much information — it’d take a ship to ferry the information away from Panama. Today, all it takes is a single encrypted email.
Throughout history we see how significant reductions in the cost and effort of communicating information led to seismic shifts in the world around us. The printing press played a central role in the Reformation, while radio and television helped shape the 20th century. The internet is no less significant, which is why I’m so fascinated by it — especially the impact it’s having on our economy, society and culture, in ways that we may not fully understand for decades to come.
But in the meantime, how should we operate in this brave new world of transparency? When the MPs’ expenses scandal broke in 2009, a decision was taken to require all Tory MPs to start publishing their expenses online, and in real time. MPs behaved very differently when they knew their expenses were being scrutinised in detail, which meant a better deal for taxpayers.
Embracing transparency like this is the only option at a time when the internet is reshaping our institutions, and giving us all access to more information than entire governments possessed just a few decades ago. The genie is well and truly out of the bottle, and there’s no going back.

MP blames "militant feminists and politically correct males" (freemasons) for stirring up problems between men and women
One thing definitely is true is that they are ape men posturing using a massive propaganda campaign that suggests subtly and deviously that
THEY and not every other man that is not part of their satanic cult will protect women.
Domestic violence as portrayed in THEIR compliant media paints a sinister picture of men constantly battering women
and children and who deserve a state machine to bring a massive boot down on the face of men to protect those down
trodden women when the exact opposite is the case .
The state, run almost entirely through masonic infiltrators, requires to dominate non mason men and under the GUISE of protecting women they can destroy any competition that might eat into their vast plundering network that encircles the globe. This ensures men with the worst human traits get to eat out of the enormous trough that has accrued from the plundering of men through legal and political machinations and the brute force assured by the freemason thugs operating inside the police forces required to impose THEIR LAWS that they themselves are not required to adhere to.
There is no bigger terrorist threat on the planet than the zionist controlled freemason network and where sinister figures like the Queen's loyal lord lieutenant the Duke of Kent creates the orders for their dim witted masonic lackeys to do all the dirty work required to keep them as the top NAZI despots on the planet. A stasi like secret force that ensures only the royals and their global army of subservient ape men (through blackmail control) can ring fence the world's wealth at the enormous expense of men and their families who wont be selling their soul to the devil any time soon.
