Mea culpa, mea culpa

Like it or not, tax justice has fuelled the alienation many feel from a global elite operating multinational corporations. Whether this has had the unfortunate consequence of fuelling populism is an issue open to question. That it is an issue that still angers people is, I think, beyond doubt.

    Everything he does is a cry of envy. As such, it isn’t really worth commenting on. However, the assorted stupidities accompanying those cries… now those are worth commenting on.
