Leaks reveal secrets of the rich who hide cash offshore | UK news | The Guardian

The paper is working with investgative journalists from all over the world on the story but apparently no Irish papers seem to be involved.

That doesn't mean that some Irish names might not surface.

Yes indeed $33trillion - who says the rich have no money?

And while the elites hoard this $33trillion we have job losses, cutbacks, poverty, unemployment, despiration and the destruction of society.

Don't you love a little Grauniad indignance.

So people have bank accounts in the Virgin Islands.


Well Google launders billions for its shareholders through Ireland.



And what about the Grauniad? Did their "exclusive investigaion" unearth GMG Haze3l Acquisition 1 - registered in the Cayman Islands???


No? I wonder why.


Spare us the Grauniad rubbish. This is not news beyond the fact that some people may have their legal financial affairs aired to the public.

I am really annoyed that Lagarde did not name Irish people in the list of tax defaulters she was wandering around Europe with.

Hopefully there will be some Irish names in this list.

Strangely Annoymous and Wikileaks never release any of those names either. I wonder why?

Who in Ireland would need to evade tax, when one can just go and 'live' in Malta (while leaving one's family in Ireland all year round), thus legally avoiding Irish taxes?

It's good to get this out there tbh, but it's fantastic fun to see a paper who got so pissy about other papers hacking phones gleefully benefiting from this info that's clearly been obtained illegitimately.

Rich people want to keep as much of their money as possible as opposed to handing it over to the government. Well I never!

Is the dataset available anywhere?

Seem to recall the Quinns having some BVI entities set up in an attempt to get assets away from Anglo, might be something interesting there...

personally i think the civilised western nations should park battleships off the coast of every offshore haven until they open up the bank files to see who has what stashed where....

Why, that is the Grauniad's "offshore tax evading" holding company.


The Grauniad stance is if you have any assets in a Carribean country you are a tax dodging, money laundering, reprobate whose personal information needs to be shared with the world.

Except if you are the Grauniad, in which case all is good and it is none of your business.

A lot of pension scheme money in those places.

That would mean a lot of the people expressing outrage on this thread are attacking themselves.

The British governement of the day are least likely to remove this virginal cancer which makes a joke of PAYE, financial regulation, declarations of interests and the rest.
They prefer to hit the low-paid and on-benefit people while they and their relatives and supporters benefit from hidden wealth.

British apart, this is no excuse for our government's blind-eye politics which perpetuates one law for the rich and one for the rest. The Virgin Islands and other tax haven facilities provide the bolt hole for the unrecoverable AIB and Anglo loans which we are paying for.
I have seen enough of overseas aid to realise that money laundering is a big part of the reason why this scam, so loved by the naieve as well as the rich, continues while cuts are argued on the basis of balancing books and no money left.
