There is more and more coming to light all the time about the “Panama Papers Leak”. Some heads have already rolled. You can probably expect that more will follow. “Double Standards” will certainly be applied to the “really guilty” however, UNTIL they are “thrown under the bus” at some point, I expect, because they are no longer needed and have served their purpose.
Things like this NEVER happen, except when performed by some heroic little “nobody” that no-one had ever heard of because of a real conscience present in the individual (and they certainly end up paying the price for it), OR…
If it otherwise comes through an “official” source, in the employ of “the powers that be” in some capacity, THEN it was probably PLANNED, or at least allowed, because it serves their purposes! (They sure are “illuminated” huh?) — You only need to trace backwards to WHO “leaked” what, when, and HOW, to see that it was the “higher ups” in the “you know who” chain, through their puppet subsidiaries!
So, “what if” the outcome of it all is that the general populations finally get fed up with getting screwed by their governments, banks, corporations, lying media, all stealing their hard-earned money. What if they have had enough of seeing it withheld, misused (as in spent by their governments on the wrong things, such as weapons and wars), while they see their “taxes” NOT supplying their needs, such as a health services, education for their children, transport services, amenities and utilities that benefit, responsible local government, needful work done by people who know how, etc, etc, ad infinitum), watching it being “redirected” and siphoned off to people who never worked for it and don’t deserve it (BECAUSE IT’S NOT THEIRS)?
“Perhaps the solution would be to cut out all those middle men??? – “Fire” or ditch them all. All work “for yourselves”. Your “contribution” to “society” will be safely stored, digitally, where only you can get at it. All you need is an implanted chip, your unique personal ID that no-one can get at or duplicate. Problem solved! Oh, and because everyone is working together for this one cause, globally, there will be no need for politicians or political states, just a global enforcement force needed to enforce the new international law that everybody will abide by.” (And those that won’t???…)
Anyway, here are some more clips…
‘Cameron shouldn’t just resign… he should be sent to prison!’ Ken Livingstone tells RT (VIDEO)
And watch the video clip from the 95 year old veteran in the following article…
Samantha Cameron under fire for taxpayer-funded £53k-a-year ‘fashion adviser’
Also, over 130,000 signatures were received demanding that the UK PM cease and desist from spending £9,000,000 of UK citizens taxes on printing leaflets and putting his arguments for staying in the EU through the letterboxes of every household in England. (Both “in” and “out” campaigns have been allowed an EQUAL campaign allowance of just £7,000,000 each!).
Demonstrations are already underway, crying “Tories out!”. I believe the PM and his “goverments” days must surely be numbered. He has proven himself to be a liar and completely untrustworthy! No one likes or agrees with how he has treated the people of the UK!
Lastly, here is a perfect example of hypocritical BBC propaganda “reporting” (imagine how those interviewed will feel if they ever got to read how their personal opinions were (mis)represented by this “reporter”?)
Panama Papers: Russians unfazed by Putin circle deals
By Steve Rosenberg
BBC News, Elektrostal, Russia
8 April 2016
Drive two hours east of Moscow, and you’ll reach a town which, in Tsarist times, was called Zatishe – “peace and quiet”.
Everything here was peaceful and quiet until they built a giant metallurgical plant, a munitions factory and heavy machine-building enterprise. Under communism the town was renamed Elektrostal (‘ElectroSteel’). To reflect the absence of peace and quiet.
Communism collapsed a quarter of a century ago. But today, like many places in Russia, Elektrostal still has a Lenin Square and a Soviet street. It has something else, too, that was very common in the USSR: a deep suspicion of the West.
At a newspaper kiosk I ask sales assistant Nadezhda what she thinks of the Panama Papers, and claims of a money laundering ring close to the Kremlin.
“I have a very negative attitude… towards you!” Nadezhda replies.
“That’s a pity,” I respond, “I don’t have a negative attitude towards you.”
“It’s nothing personal,” explains Nadezhda. “You seem quite a decent person. It’s your country I don’t like and its scheming. All these ‘investigations’ are a waste of time and money. We know what you’re up to.”

Documents leaked from Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca reveal suspected money laundering ring involving close associates of President Vladimir Putin
Cellist Sergei Roldugin, a close friend of Mr Putin, named in connection with suspicious offshore transactions.
Billion-dollar offshore operation was run by Bank Rossiya, which is subject to US and EU sanctions, documents show deals went through an offshore entity called Sandalwood Continental.
Kremlin dismissed revelations as an anti-Putin smear campaign aimed at influencing upcoming Russian elections.
President Vladimir Putin denied “any element of corruption” and alleged that US officials and official bodies were behind the revelations.
Nadezhda calls over her friend, the ice cream seller.
“Marina, come here, they’re trying to rub Putin’s face in the dirt.”
“We’re for Putin, we’re for Russia,” the ice cream lady declares. “The West just wants to topple him and put one of its own people in his place. Someone like Ukraine’s President [Petro] Poroshenko.”
“But what about the claims about offshore accounts, tax evasion and money laundering close to the Kremlin?” I ask, “Doesn’t that surprise you?”
“People high up have always had accounts like these and they always will,” Marina says, “And Putin can’t keep an eye on everyone.”
At the Elektrostal hair salon, manager Galina believes Russia is a cut above the West.
“It’s bad that we have enemies, like America, who always criticise Russia,” Galina tells me. “The Americans just want to conquer the world. I’m certain that Putin has no connection to these alleged accounts.”
Later in the park I meet a mathematician called Boris. I ask what he thinks about allegations people close to the president have been channelling huge sums through offshore companies.
“Well, it doesn’t affect my life in any way,” Boris replies, “and if it doesn’t affect me or the people around me, then as far as I’m concerned it doesn’t exist. Anyway, Putin is the greatest leader of modern times.”
Many of Elektrostal’s residents appeared to be suspicious of the West and supportive of their leaders.
This is precisely the picture that state television in Russia paints: heroic Putin versus evil West. The message is so powerful it often overrides the scepticism some people do feel about what TV is telling them.
“We can’t rely on the mass media these days,” says Zhanna, a teacher at the Elektrostal Foreign Language School. “Sometimes we are in a difficult situation; we don’t know who to believe. All mass media tell lies, everywhere.”
But that does not affect Zhanna’s view of Vladimir Putin.
“I think he is not worth criticising. He is a worthy president and he behaves correctly.”
I ask Zhanna what she makes of past rumours that Vladimir Putin has a multi-billion dollar fortune.
“No, these accusations are not right. Not at all. Accusations are necessary for our enemies. That’s why they try to exaggerate things or invent things.”
Most of the people I speak to in Elektrostal are critical of Western leaders and governments.
But with the exception, perhaps, of Nadezhda the newspaper vendor, I am made to feel very welcome. In the park, three friends, Nikita, Ivan and Andrei, get off their bikes and offer me what looks like cognac. When I politely decline, explaining I am driving, they get me to “clink” the bottle with my fist as a sign of friendship.
The friends disagree about the Panama Papers. Ivan dismisses the documents as “total rubbish”. But Nikita declares himself a rare voice “against Putin”. He says he believes the findings of the journalists’ investigation are true.
Before I leave Elektrostal I get chatting to a pensioner called Ella. She’s sitting on the pavement selling socks and stockings, to supplement her pension. You might think that if anyone would be angry at the suggestion huge sums of money were being squirrelled abroad, it would be Ella. But she doesn’t seem to care.
“I don’t know about any of these offshore accounts,” Ella tells me, “but I do know that a head of state has the right to be well off. He carries such a weight of responsibility.”
To many Russians, power and wealth go hand in hand. And many here remain suspicious of the West. As long as Russians are focused on enemies abroad, their leaders at home will feel quite safe.
(David – Which is EXACTLY the tactic the West uses on THEIR populations! Such hypocrisy is disgusting! Why would ANYONE want to work for the BBC or any of the other “propaganda bullhorns of the West? SHAME on them! I pity them – one day THEY will be “thrown under a bus” by their masters! Whew!)
