I've not bothered reading about this much.

I've always assumed, and it seems quite rightly, that the wealthy and connected fiddle their taxes.

Of course they all will say they are doing nothing illegal but to me it's still fiddling your taxes.

Re: Paradise Papers

Same old story, the more money people have the more they want, in short it's just greed !

Not often I agree with Corbyn but as he said that money they are ' legally avoiding' paying in tax is less money for schools, hospitals and other public services.

Can there be any better example of the rich and powerful looking after themselves

But it's only when enough people do become bothered that something is done about it !

I suspect the hope is that another story will be in the headlines and this is soon forgotten about
