This isn’t pretty, but it’s horribly true

Posted on

I got a mail last night from a person who knows a bit about tax havens / secrecy jurisdictions. He said

Havens are are like whorehouse on the edge of town. The police raid them periodically but they are never shut down because the mayor is in there whenever they call with his pants around his ankles.

It’s not a pretty metaphor. It may have an element of sexism within it. But it works.

We need transparency to show that the mayor is in there.

And that’s also precisely why they will fight so hard to keep us from knowing what is really going on.

Thanks for reading this post.
