I'm still struggling to believe that anyone could as blatantly promote tax evasion Konrad Hummler, a partner in Wegelin & Co., did when saying this to Der Spiegel:

German tax evasion is a legitimate defense by citizens attempting to "partially escape the current grasp of the administrators of a disastrous social welfare state and its fiscal policies."

"Swiss-style saving outside the system" is something to which not only the wealthy, but also productive small and mid-sized businesses are entitled. "These people must be protected," he says.

With opponents like this our job is made that much easier.
