The Right-Minded View: Panama Papers & Tax | A New Place Of Exile

And now, some calming (satirical) words from Richard Hutton:

I don’t see what people are complaining about on this score, quite frankly. While some have questioned our PM’s position on the whole world-wide creative accountancy scheme disclosed therein, I say Mr Cameron has made this less a crisis, than an opportunity.

As far as integrity goes, PM Cameron’s own example in life could hardly be faulted: he worked hard and earned his birth into a prosperous family; while his dealings with the international piggy bank are reputed to have been entirely upstanding, and firm throughout. He approached the fabled creature with due rectitude and probity; maintaining a high-rate of interest, by never withdrawing unless it had become necessary.

No doubt the usual sorts will suggest that our government is corrupt, and that far from its hands being bound on this issue, it simply chooses to take a seat upon them, so to speak. But this is untrue. No – the reason Mr Cameron doesn’t ask his friends to pay tax is because he simply has better manners than to do so. That’s why.

All told, taxation is simply unnecessary in the modern world. Rather than fault Messrs Cameron et al, we should be applauding them for rewarding the world’s many plucky creators of wealth, all while taking fiscal responsibility for reducing expenditure on the superfluous elements in life – such as libraries, schools, colleges, the police, and hospitals. If members of our government have been travelling to the Bahamas every once in a while, to check on the City of London’s finances, then that is merely a testament to their patriotism.
