These are my links for January 29th through January 30th:
- Cover story: 'Rise of the red Tories' by Phillip Blond | Prospect Magazine February 2009 issue 155 – Superficially appealing
Actually, really quite nasty underneath it all
- We need more than sticking plasters, warns leading Labour backbencher – – John Cruddas urged Mr Brown to launch "two crusades". One would be on "tax justice", including minimum tax rates throughout the incomes scale so that the rich paid their fair share and joining President Obama's crackdown on offshore tax havens.
The second would be a state-funded programme to build 100,000 houses a year, which would provide homes for those who need them and create 50,000 jobs in the construction industry. "That is the language people will understand – not mechanistic but emotionally in tune with people who are suffering."
What can I say?
Go for it!
- Guernsey deal extends taxman's reach – Accountancy Age – Sorry – but as I say in the piece – the evidence is TIEAs are not enough
Jersey has supplied 4 pieces of data to the USA in 6 years
I do not call that meaningful exchange
- Offshore Asset Protection – Another Roundup of the Usual Suspects – Bob clearly thinks we exist to supply him with cause for invective
I've got news for Bob….
Those governments aren't letting us use their name in vain
- Letter from the City: UK plans amnesty program for offshore bank accounts – Quite funny really: the banks say they aren't involved in offshore tax avoidance but Stephen Timms seems to be saying they are most certainly assisting offshore tax evasion. Why else is an amnesty needed?
- ‘We’ve nothing to hide’ » News » This Is Guernsey – Yes you have
If you haven't you wouldn't have created the massive veil of secrecy that surrounds all corporate activity in Guernsey
I wonder if he realises how daft he sounds?
