A Guardian report into offshoreNovember 26, 2012 Tim WorstallNewspaper Watch10 CommentsHope they include their own offshore companies, eh? previousErr, no, it ain\’tnextHa Joon Chang Is Right! 10 thoughts on “A Guardian report into offshore” Rob November 26, 2012 at 10:49 am I expect they’ll be excluded due to lack of space. Arnald November 26, 2012 at 11:10 am I haven’t read the article yet, but IIRC it was about the names behind the offshore vehicles. The Scott Trust has it’s individuals documented in the public domain, I’m pretty sure. So your problem is? dearieme November 26, 2012 at 1:21 pm There is no “Scott Trust”: it’s the Scott Trust Ltd, is it not? Richard November 26, 2012 at 2:04 pm Is Jesse Hester from Mauritius, named in the linked article, related to Carl Hester, the Sark-based Olympic dressage gold medallist? That would be an interesting story, would it not, if they are related? Can’t be too many Hesters in the world and a link with Sark would be quite a coincidence….. Phil November 26, 2012 at 2:25 pm Richard Looks like it might be either a brother or half brother as I think Jesse is around 36 years old. James James November 26, 2012 at 3:06 pm I always call it “the tax-dodging Guardian”. Don’t forget this masterpiece of dissembling from Alan Rusbridger: http://www.guardian.co.uk/help/insideguardian/2011/feb/22/blogpost The digested read: “it’s okay for us to avoid tax because we use the money for good”. dearieme November 26, 2012 at 4:09 pm Thanks, James. “the Scott Trust is still going strong … It is now a limited company …”: aye, so it ain’t a Trust, is it? diogenes November 26, 2012 at 11:52 pm dearieme…does that mean that Arnald was wrong? Maybe the burgers are not cooking well today. Bemused Bystander November 27, 2012 at 8:40 am Don’t worry, phone hacker David Leigh said the Guardian’s financial affairs are 100% legit, so move on wingnuts, nothing to see here! Arnald November 27, 2012 at 9:59 am yawn. The point is that the Ben Owners are published, the Guardian investigation is about how secret the benificiaries really are and what lengths they take to ensure that and for what purpose. If all you can do is repeat ad nauseum something that has been explained before, then that makes you a 4 year old child. Well done! Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
