    any one familiar with the Milton Friedman economic theories?
    Reaganomics based its theory on gaining control of a nation’s economics and effectively enslaving its workers. This sound familiar. Thatcher, and those in government base their style of government on AUSTERITY which is a form of the Milton Friedman economic theories. It explains the offshore shares many of which will be ‘bearer shares’. Austerity is intended to create a low-wage economy by enslaving a nation’s workers.
    First the nation’s economy must be ‘broken’ and be financially subservient as in the preceding recession conditions. This applies to the UK, Chile, and the Baltic states historically. Thatcher applied Reaganomics, it was continued by other PMs including most noticeably Blair and Cameron.
    Wars are integral to creating a nation with a subservient economy which can then be controlled by those who have control of several economies of the broken nations. eg Iraq, Greece, etc.
    The offshore shares dont pay UK taxes and are finances/money which can be invested in the UK to fund Tories and temporarily boost the economy near the general election. irrespective of who gains power, the money is returned to offshore tax havens without paying tax as required by law.
    This pattern of events is probably evident in the Panama papers.

    That is exactly what is happening in our Country right now, no wonder there is so much dumbing down going on.
    I have long thought there is a conspiracy going on to prevent people from thinking for themselves.
