How many of these investigations are into Conservative Party MPs, members or supporters?

And is David Cameron among them?

Twenty-two people face civil and criminal investigations into suspected tax evasion following the disclosure of the Panama Papers, the chancellor has told MPs.

Philip Hammond also said a further 43 wealthy individuals were under review while their links to the offshore files were investigated further. He made the comments in a written answer to the House of Commons explaining what had happened since the offshore tax files emerged.

    I’m sure they will mostly have top accountants and advisors to ensure their immunity from anything. Despite years of knowing the real issues the tax office has taken no action from this seepage of cash offshore as the Elite are part of the nudge nudge wink wink system of them and us. Plenty of Cons talk about tightening up weak tax laws but all the while the hand brake is running there will be plenty of time to deal with their cash piles and scams. Not got a lot of faith anything will come of this pathetic number of avoiders and more interested in just how many names were on the original hit lists…..a few Labour millionaires/supporters may well be singled out.
    Need some Wikileak background so as to ensure we have full knowledge not just what the biased media wants us to know.
