Post Huge turnout as thousands of activists attend Panama Papers protest calling for David Cameron's resignation


The woman is led away by two police officers


Thousands of people have descended upon Downing Street today to protest against David Cameron after he admitted his part in the Panama Papers scandal.

The Prime Minister's father Ian Cameron was revealed to have owned an offshore account after the details of clients were uncovered in history's biggest leak.

The fund was set up in Panama to avoid paying UK corporation and capital gains tax.



Today, Cameron has addressed the scandal as those up and down the country call for him to resign.

A police officer was pictured with blood down her face following today’s clashes in central London.

Numerous cops were seen scuffling with protesters near Big Ben amid a mass protest over the Panama Papers scandal.



Demonstrators have said they will continue protesting until David Cameron resigns as Prime Minister.

These were the shocking scenes as today’s protest over the Panama Papers scandal descended into violence.

A petition to have a General Election held this year is about to hit the 100,000-signature mark.

The campaign, named ‘Hold a General Election in 2016’, claims the public was ‘purposefully misguided’ before last year’s election.

It reads: “The lies David Cameron told before the election have now been widely acknowledged as such, and it is only reasonable that the public should be allowed to vote with full knowledge about his true agenda in 2016.”

The petition is currently on 99,747 signatures.

But no riots demanding the ouster of the socialist Liberals? Go figure. No! We don't need to go figure. We know there's always a filthy jew in the woodpile.

Post UK - Thousands Call For Pig Sodomite David Cameron To Resign

In the UK, thousands are calling for the resignation of the disgusting pig sodomite and 1/8th Jew David Cameron. These calls are related to his connection to the Panama Papers scandal. The revelations linked a number of high profile political figures to shady dealings with offshore bank accounts and tax shelters.

While it appears as if there may have been a specific political motivation in the release of this information, it does not hurt my feelings to see Cameron tied in with this. He is a traitor for allowing the UK to be transformed into a third world dump.

Even though many different people have been connected to this scandal, it has been alleged that USAID and George Soros’s Open Society Foundation had some involvement in the leaks. Specifically, the leaks may have been an attempt to demonize Russians linked to Vladimir Putin. Soros’s subversive organizations have been banned from Russia, so it isn’t a major stretch to believe that there is a connection.

From Mirror:

Thousands of people descended on Downing Street today to protest against David Cameron after he admitted his part in the Panama Papers scandal.

The Prime Minister’s father, Ian Cameron, was revealed to have owned an offshore account after the details of clients were uncovered in history’s biggest leak.

The fund was set up in Panama to avoid paying UK corporation and capital gains tax.

Today, Cameron addressed the scandal, admitting that it hasn’t been a ‘great’ week and he should have handled the situation better.

Speaking at the Conservative Party spring forum, he said: “I know there are lessons to be learned and I shall learn them.”

He added that the controversy was the fault of nobody else but himself, saying ‘blame me’.

Stashing money in offshore accounts under fake names is the least of Cameron's crimes. He should be arrested and put on trial for war crimes and treason, followed by public execution at the Tower of London. But it seems as if England is too far gone to do the right thing.

There is currently no Twitter feed listed because we were banned by the faggots at Twitter after around three weeks. They are sick individuals who hate free speech and believe in the virtues of Jewish Marxist doctrines.

This site was banned from the Disqus comment service because we were alleged to hurt feelings. It is important to note that Disqus is run by a bunch of faggots in San Francisco who hate freedom.

We do not have a Facebook account because it is an organization run by horribly evil society subverting Jews like Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg who belong in concentration camps.

Our PayPal account was permanently banned because we allegedly violated their policies. Apparently saying things Jews don't like is included in their terms of service.

We've been banned from GoFundMe a donation site run by a Jew because they hate free speech.

Jews, Holocaust believers, JIDF trolls, Hasbara shills, Zionist retards, degenerate Marxist traitors and social justice

Post The leaders of every major Scottish political party publish their tax returns

Nicola Sturgeon has joined Scotland's other party leaders in publishing her tax returns amid calls for transparency over politicians' personal finances.

Prime Minister David Cameron published a summary of his taxes after criticism in the wake of the Panama tax leak.

Scottish Labour's Kezia Dugdale released her returns on Saturday, and was followed by Tory Ruth Davidson.

SNP leader Ms Sturgeon and Willie Rennie of the Lib Dems then published their documents the following day.

Minus pension contributions, which are not taxable, each opposition leader was paid more than £52,000 for their work as an MSP. Each paid about £10,000 in tax.

For her role as first minister, again minus pension contributions, Ms Sturgeon was paid more than £104,000, and paid £31,000 in tax.

'Palpable anger'

Ms Dugdale was the first of the Scottish party leaders to publish her returns, saying she had "nothing to hide".

The figures showed Ms Dugdale had paid £734.40 in tax for earnings from her Daily Record newspaper column despite donating the full annual fee of £5450 to the Motor Neuron Disease Scotland charity.

Ms Dugdale said: "There is an obligation on all of us who seek to serve the public to be transparent.

"Not since the MPs expenses scandal has there been such palpable anger at the sense of unfairness at the heart of our society.

"Politicians need to not only play by the rules, they need to be seen to be playing by the rules."

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, who published her returns shortly after Ms Dugdale, also made charitable donations from her income without claiming relief.

Ms Davidson has repeatedly defended Mr Cameron over his tax affairs, saying the prime minister has been "very clear" about his finances.

Scottish Lib Dem leader Mr Rennie, who published his returns on Sunday, noted: "Compared with certain other party leaders my tax returns are rather dull, but here they are anyway."

As Ms Sturgeon published her returns, the SNP said both she and her predecessor Alex Salmond had forgone more than £20,000 in pay since 2009 through a system which sees minister put money from their own pay packets towards public spending.

Ms Sturgeon said: "There should be a presumption that if you earn money in this country, you should pay tax on that in this country.

"I'm going to continue to argue very strongly for reform of tax avoidance."

Post UK - Is A Storm Brewing in London which will lead to a Brexit?

Sabba – The writer of this piece believes that the UK might end up leaving the EU because of this XXIth century version of the ‘Panama Scandal’.

Many geo-politicians have been saying for a few years that at one stage, the UK will leave the EU. Not because of a referendum. Not because of a tax issues involving the P.M but because it has always been planned this way.

After having screwed up entirely in his handling of his father’s offshore company and the 30,000 pounds in shares that he sold just before becoming PM, first trying to hunker down and say nothing, then finally coming clean to jeers of demonstrators at his door, he has just become the first PM to reveal his tax filings of the past several years. And all to no avail.

Transparency has only highlighted his wealth, which a large part of the British electorate is allergic to (rhymes with anti-bankers, anti-Semitism, all the good things, the very opposite of Americans’ awe before wealth).

Moreover, now the attacks are on the 200,000 pounds in gift money he received from his mother in 2011, the year his father died. That was all completely legal. It was motivated by her wish to even the inheritance, since Cameron’s older brother got the family house. And it took advantage of the British law making such gifts (inheritance) tax free if the donor lives for 7 years after the gift. (we have a very similar law in Belgium, so I am well familiar with the issues – which come to using tax avoidance as a social lever to see to the redistribution of family wealth when it can do some good, i.e. when the children are relatively young, instead of waiting till the geezers die.)

All of the key points for the foregoing are in today’s and yesterday’s Guardian, not in RT. The reporting is not driven by any particular bias with respect to Russia, though Russia will be one of the biggest beneficiaries of Cameron’s travails.

Moreover, there is a credible successor all lined up: Boris Johnson of the Leave campaign, who otherwise is not standing for reelection as London’s mayor.

Why does all this matter? Because without Cameron the Stay In campaign is doomed. Because Britain’s leaving the EU stops Brussels in its tracks, including its mad policies in the East. Because the level of probability of this happening is probably higher than Trump’s becoming the Republican candidate, not to mention his getting elected as president. And there is not a blessed thing the U.S. Government can do about it.

So, despite my recent gloominess about its relevance, Europe may pull our chestnuts out of the fire after all.

Ms Sturgeon said: "There should be a presumption that if you earn money in this country, you should pay tax on that in this country.
Correct! and having paid your income tax what you do with your money should be your own business.It is a fundamental Aryan instinct to leave your money,goods and chattels to your next of kin on your death.
Income tax if it exists should be a simple affair: Income taxed at 25% anyone not paying it to be asset stripped to a bowl and blanket.
What we have at the moment is smoke and mirrors jew style.Call me has broken no laws however his dad provided he paid income tax on the money he accrued should not have had to use offshore in the first place.

Post HSBC, Coutts & Rothschild: British banks help the 1% evade tax, Panama Papers suggest

Some of the world’s biggest banks were implicated in the largest data leak in history on Monday, including Britain’s HSBC, Coutts, and Rothschild, and Swiss banks UBS and Credit Suisse.

MPs and activists have attacked bankers for facilitating the use of near-invisible offshore firms used by criminals, terrorists, celebrities and politicians to hide their money.

Tax experts have called for new legislation to crack down on tax evasion in light of the revelations.

According to the leak, HSBC and affiliate companies have asked the Panama-based Mossack Fonseca law firm to create more than 2,300 shell companies since the 1970s.

London-based private bank Coutts – which counts Queen Elizabeth II among its clientele – requested the law firm to set up nearly 500 shell companies through its Jersey branch, while Rothschild requested 378 through its Guernsey arm.

The shell companies were set up in Panama, the British Virgin Islands and other tax havens.

The leaked files allegedly show how banks and law firms failed in many cases to follow legal requirements to check their customers are not tax dodging, or involved in corruption or criminal enterprises.

“People are naturally very worried that there are individuals and organizations not paying tax when they should be. If this type of thing facilitates tax evasion then this is something we absolutely must clamp down on,” Tory MP Mark Garnier told the Financial Times.

Labour MP John Mann, a member of the Treasury committee, called for evidence to be handed to the Serious Fraud Office (SFO).

“There should be transparency, it is vital after the financial crisis. There needs to be some responsibility taken by senior bankmanagers — the top executives — if criminality is proven to have happened and they’ve turned a blind eye to it.”

Public outrage at the revelations is building momentum as social media users took to Twitter to condemn the banks for their role in alleged tax evasion.

Tax expert Richard Murphy called for new legislation to crack down on British Overseas Territories used as tax havens.

Murphy, who has advised Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn’s taxation policy, said the government is not telling the truth when it says it cannot change the law in UK Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories.

He proposes instigating four simple reforms:

If the territories refuse to cooperate with Westminster, Murphy says the government should implement direct rule.

He cites a 2009 example when the British parliament discovered corruption in the Turks and Caicos Islands and suspended its government for two years, with power transferred to a Westminster-appointed governor.

The point needs reiterating is that "tax avoidance" processes are not illegal.Off shore companies,the BBC paying individuals as corporations is not illegal.All this moral outrage by the system "opposition" is absurd in a country overrun by islamic paedophiles and their enablers.
People should be asking why such "tax avoidance" processes exist.Why is not income tax a straight forward tax on income full stop no need for any other legislation if you earned it you pay tax on it wherever you earned it in the world and if you don't like it fuck off and live somewhere else.

Post Panama Papers: HMRC chief was partner at law firm that acted for David Cameron offshore fund

Labour has stepped up demands for an independent inquiry into the Panama Papers leak after it emerged the head of HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) was previously a partner at a law firm which represented a number of offshore companies - including Blairmore Holdings, the fund set up by David Cameron's father.

HMRC has been given in a lead role in the £10 million taskforce launched by Mr Cameron to investigate allegations of wrongdoing linked to the Panama Papers leak of more than 11 million files from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca.

Edward Troup, the new executive chairman of HMRC, is a former partner at Simmons & Simmons, whose clients have included the Panama-registered fund created by the Prime Minister's father Ian, the Guardian reported.

The newspaper, which has access to the leaked information, said Simmons & Simmons' name appears on dozens of emails and documents in the Panama Papers in connection with a number of companies registered with Mossack Fonseca.

HMRC said Mr Troup had never had dealings with Mossack Fonseca and none of the individuals or organisations named so far in relation to the Panama Papers were clients he had advised.

But the shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, seized on the Guardian report as a further indication of why the inquiry into the Panama Papers revelations should be independent.

He said: "This further highlights why, for any inquiry to have the full confidence of the British people, it must be truly independent in structure and process.

"It certainly should not be reporting to politicians whose party has been highly implicated in this scandal, with large donors directly involved in this matter.

"But most of all it needs to be above question and beyond rebuke. And with new allegations calling the Government's approach into question the only obvious answer is a truly independent public inquiry as Labour is demanding."

The Guardian, which has access to the leaked data, said Simmons & Simmons' name appears on dozens of emails and documents in the Panama Papers in connection with a number of companies registered with Mossack Fonseca.

Mr Troup worked at the firm from 1997 until 2004 and the Guardian reported that some correspondence dates back to 2003, when Mr Troup was still a partner.

A HMRC spokesman 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 taxp

Post David Cameron says it is 'unfair' to criticise British-controlled tax havens

David Cameron has defended a group of notorious British-controlled tax havens – arguing that criticism of their offshore regimes is “unfair”.

The group of territories, which includes the British Virgin Islands – at the centre of the Panama Papers storm – have long been criticised by campaigners for secrecy and sheltering wealthy individuals and companies from tax.

But the Prime Minister said the UK’s assorted Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories were now being cooperative and praised their pledged adoption of new rules.

The statement following the Panama Papers scandal is a change of tone – as UK Foreign Office ministers last year said they were “disappointed” in the territories’ approaches.

Mr Cameron also ruled out blacklisting countries on the basis that they were zero- or very low-tax jurisdictions.

“In terms of who is at the top of the pyramid of tax secrecy, I think it is now unfair to say that about our Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories,” the PM told the House of Commons at Prime Minister’s Questions.

“They are now going to cooperate with the three things that we asked them to do in terms of the reporting standard, the exchange of tax information, and now the register of beneficial ownership.”

Asked about blacklisting tax havens, the PM said: “We’re happy to support blacklists but we don’t think we should draw up a blacklist solely on the basis of a territory raising a low tax rate – we don’t think that’s the right approach.”

Overseas territories are not independent of the UK but are generally autonomous in their own affairs. The UK provides diplomatic and defence support for the countries, and they are ultimately accountable to the UK parliament.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised Mr Cameron’s approach.

“It’s interesting that the premier of the Cayman Islands Alden McLaughlin is today apparently celebrating his victory over the Prime Minister because he is saying that the information certainly will not be available publicly or available directly by any UK or non-Cayman Islands agency,” the Labour leader said.

“The Prime Minister is supposed to be chasing down tax evasion and tax avoidance, he’s supposed to be bringing it all into the open.”

Cayman’s premier Mr McLaughin had said the deal struck with the UK was “what we wanted” and that Cayman had “been pushing for [it for] three years”.

The Labour leader has said uncooperative British Overseas Territories that act as tax havens should be taken under direct control of the UK if they persist.

David Cameron however said that “the British [register] will be public”.

The row comes after Mr Cameron and Mr Corbyn released details of their own tax affairs in the wake of the Panama Papers scandal.

A massive leak from law firm Mossack Fonseca provided details of over 200,000 offshore companies, most of which were set up in the British Virgin Islands.

Post UK - It's not 30,000 in Cameron's offshore account, it's at least 2 million

INTREPID REPORT – British Prime Minister David Cameron tried to fend off criticism of an offshore trust maintained in the Bahamas by his father Ian Cameron and which he inherited upon his father’s death in 2010. The details of the trust were contained in the massive tranche of documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which were leaked to the media by the dubious International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), an operation funded by George Soros, the CIA-connected U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation.

In defending his connection to the tax-avoidance trust, Blairmore Holdings Inc., for which his father was a director, Cameron said, “We owned 5,000 units in Blairmore Investment Trust, which we sold in January 2010. That was worth something like 30,000 pounds.” By “we,” Cameron was referring to himself and wife Samantha, who jointly held the Bahamas trust. In related news, WMR has learned that the financial scandal involving both Blairmore Holdings, Inc. and the JR Central £2 million pay-off to Cameron has resulted in significant marital problems between David and Samantha Cameron and that a divorce is imminent.

However, according to senior British Conservative Party sources who spoke on background to WMR, Cameron had at least £2 million in offshore accounts. The money was paid to Cameron, according to the sources, as part of a deal by JR Central, a subsidiary of Japan Railways, to secure a lucrative contract to lay new rails for HS2, the new high-speed British rail system. When completed, the rail system was designed to be faster than the French TGV high-speed railway.

In order to ensure that JR Central received the contract for laying the rails for HS2, the firm spread the largesse of its bribes across the British political spectrum in 2015. In addition to Cameron’s £2 million; £1 million to Sir Jeremy Heywood, Britain’s Cabinet Secretary and senior civil servant; £1 million to Nick Clegg, the former leader of the Liberal Democratic Party and Cameron’s deputy prime minister in the ill-fated Tory-Lib Dem coalition that survived until 2015; and £1 million to Ed Miliband, the former leader of the Labor Party.

In addition to the individual pay-offs, WMR has been informed that JR Central arranged what were described as “bungs,” English slang for “bribes,” to the major political parties. The Conservative Party received £25 million, Labor £10 million, and the Liberal Democrats £10 million.

The entire £50 million bribery package was paid through Nomura Bank in Tokyo. However, British intelligence sources told WMR that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency detected the movement of the money. Based on a tip-off by CIA officers in London, Tory political leaders, who are in favor of a British exit from the European Union, discovered the Japanese money in Conservative Party accounts. These anti-EU Conservative politicians also discovered that Cameron arranged for the JR Central pay-off

Post Ed Miliband says Panama Papers show wealth does not trickle down

Ed Miliband has said the revelations in the leaked Panama Papers provide evidence that wealth does not trickle down in society – rather, it gets “stashed”.

Speaking two weeks after the huge cache of documents were revealed, detailing the tax affairs of thousands of wealthy individuals worldwide, the former Labour leader said the leak proved the common assumption about capitalism to be false.

In an interview with the Observer, he said he understood why David Cameron defended his father after the Panama revelations were leaked. “But for 30 years, since Reagan and Thatcher, the basic view has been, ‘Be nice to the super-rich and their wealth will trickle down.’ That is the big lesson of Panama for me. It doesn’t trickle down; it gets stashed.”

The former Labour leader is helping to promote a new low-budget documentary, the Divide, which explores the wealth gap through seven families striving for a better life in Britain and the United States.

Speaking about the film, Mr Miliband added: “It shows the fabric of people’s lives. It’s the stress for the middle-class bloke as well as the insecurity for people in precarious jobs. It’s something I wrestled with as leader…how to show the impact.

“And it’s not going away. Look at what Bernie Sanders is campaigning on as an issue. And – this will sound like an odd thing to say, because I think he’s a vile candidate – look at Donald Trump: he is piggy-backing on the issue of inequality. He is saying people’s living standards are stuck and this is what is happening in people’s lives.”

Post Call Me Dave swerves investigation over off-shore trust and tax affairs by parliamentary watchdog

Standards watchdogs will not investigate Prime Minister David Cameron over the off-shore controversy revealed by the Panama Papers data leak.

The Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, Kathryn Hudson, has decided not to probe the matter, but her office refused to explain the reasons for that decision.

Mr Cameron was forced into the position where he had to release a six-year summary of his tax affairs after it emerged he made a £19,000 profit from selling shares in an off-shore trust set up by his father, Ian.

The Prime Minister insisted he was not involved in a tax dodge, and the way the trust was set up was entirely proper.

But Mr Cameron did admit he had badly handled the subsequent furore after details of the business emerged in the Panama Papers leaking.

Mr Cameron said he had initially been angry about the way his father's memory had been "traduced" as a result of the controversy.

After the political storm erupted, Mr Cameron said he was happy to provide more information about his personal finances to the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner if required.

Mr Cameron said he sold his shares in the off-shore trust Blairmore Holdings in January 2010, five months before becoming PM, because he wanted to avoid any conflict of interest.

"I did not want anyone to be able to suggest that as prime minister
ED: How did he know he would be elected?! I had any other agendas or vested interests. Selling all my shares was the simplest and clearest way that I could do that," Mr Cameron told the Commons at the beginning of last week.

The Prime Minister said at the time he had given information on the affair to the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner.

"There are strict rules in this House for the registration of shareholdings - I have followed them in full.

"The Labour Party has said it would refer me to the Commissioner for Parliamentary Standards - I have already given her the relevant information and if there is more she believes that I should say I am very happy to say it," Mr Cameron told MPs.

The PM used the Commons address to explain why he had not made all relevant information public sooner.

"I accept all of the criticisms for not responding more quickly to these issues - but as I said, I was angry about the way my father's memory was being traduced.

"I know he was a hard-working man and a wonderful dad and I'm proud of everything he did to build a business and provide for his family."

Mr Cameron also faced questioning over a £200,000 gift from his mother, which followed the 300,000 inheritance he received after the 2010 death of his father Ian.

The payments by Mary Cameron to her son in May and July 2011 were given tax free, and will only become liable to inheritance tax of up to 40% if the Prime Minister's mother dies within seven years of handing over the money. There is no suggestion that they have broken any rules.

Mr Cameron said parents should not be embarrassed about passing money on to their children, and insisted it was something "fully recognised" in the tax s

Post Panama Papers: Emma Watson named in latest offshore data release

Emma Watson used an offshore company leaked by the Panama Papers to​ purchase a multi-million pound property​.

​The actress, currently taking a break from acting to campaign for feminism, bought a London home in 2013 a month after setting up an entity called Falling Leaves in the British Virgin Islands.

​But Watson denied any suggestion of tax avoidance, saying the account was set up for the sole purpose of “protecting her anonymity and safety”.

A spokesman for the 26-year-old Harry Potter star said: “Emma receives absolutely no tax or monetary advantages from this offshore company whatsoever, only privacy.”

​The spokesman was unavailable for comment on Tuesday night relating specifically to the property deal.

Her account came to light after data collated by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) was published online for the first time. More than 200,000 offshore account details from Mossack Fonseca, a Panamanian law firm, are now available.

“UK companies are required to publicly publish details of their shareholders and therefore do not give her the necessary anonymity required to protect her personal safety, which has been jeopardised in the past owing to such information being publicly available,” Watson’s spokesman said.

“Offshore companies do not publish these shareholder details.”

Other famous names listed in the papers include the Duchess of York, The X Factor’s Simon Cowell and Paul Burrell, the former butler to the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Watson, who is worth £35 million, according to The Sunday Times, appears in two films this year, alongside Tom Hanks in The Circle, and in a new Disney version of Beauty and the Beast.

But the actress, who played Hermione Granger in the Potter films, said in February that she wanted to spend a year reading literature and developing HeForShe

Further I believe this feigned moral outrage is a strategy uswd by the system to conceal the real theft and arse rape that "off shore" payments were made to construction operatives from 1998 until 1997 for UK residents and as late as 2014 for contractors of foreign nationality.
As immigration debate has become mainstreamed the system is actively concealing the effects. The true effect meant that real wages were held back in London since the cancellation of CIS wages are now at the rate they were in 1998. Further that foreign nationals bought their families in tow to claim benefits and every last one of them housed in social housing. This is called dispossession and occupation.Yet we are supposed to be outraged that such and such a millionaire is a hypocrite.This does not rob the inhabitants of their rights to housing,social services,medical services, educational services and the possibility of building a comfortable life in an advanced western nation it is "Off shoring" coupled with the perverted science of Blair&Co changing the demographic of the entire nation. This is what needs addressing and this day not whether some millionaire felt they needed yet another mill just in case.
