Well done Spud, well done

It’s not by chance that the UK is the centre of corporate fraud: ministers chose to make it that way

POSTED ON MARCH 20 2017

The Guardian has today reported massive money laundering through UK banks: some $740 million is alleged to have be n illicitly laundered in the UK.

From the Guardian:

Documents seen by the Guardian show that at least $20bn appears to have been moved out of Russia during a four-year period between 2010 and 2014. The true figure could be $80bn, detectives believe.

Being between 4% and 1% of the activity makes you the centre, does it?

  1. Off Topic: The BBC is reporting that Martin McGuiness has died of a rare heart condition.

    I would like to think it is remorse.

  2. Among Marxist and terrorists, almost unheard of.

    I may be naive, but I live in hope.

  3. Off Topic: The BBC is reporting that Martin McGuiness has died of a rare heart condition.

    Shame it didn’t happen 45 years ago. In a hail of SAS lead.

  4. If he has a funeral, can we get the SAS to form a guard of honour and fire a volley into his coffin?

  5. The predictable mealy mouthed statements from politicians with this exception:

    Norman Tebbit:

    “I’m just pleased that the world is a sweeter and cleaner place now. He was not only a multi-murderer, he was a coward. He knew that the IRA were defeated because British intelligence had penetrated right the way up to the Army Council and that the end was coming. He then sought to save his own skin and he knew that it was likely he would be charged before long with several murders which he had personally committed and he decided that the only thing to do was to opt for peace. He claimed to be a Roman Catholic. I hope that his beliefs turn out to be true and he’ll be parked in a particularly hot and unpleasant corner of hell for the rest of eternity.”

  6. If Mark and Philip got around the table with Stewie, Dougie and Markie I’m pretty sure a buyer could be found for the Coop Bank given the latest laundering disclosures.

  7. Mainly seems to have gone through Switzerland, Cyprus and Estonia. Good to see that the Swiss are still up for this.

    Norm is a neighbour of mine, when I’m in England (which I am not). I gather he can be a very difficult man. A couple of years ago, he flew into a rage about the local chinese holding a noisy procession to celebrate their new year. He kicked the ‘dragon’, which unfortunately contained a chinese Tory councillor. His devotion to his disabled wife is, however, widely admired.

    On McGuinness, he is undoubtedly right.

    As NT says, I hope Martin McGuiness will be parked in a particularly hot and unpleasant corner of hell for the rest of eternity.
