'Britain most corrupt country on earth'

Post by Joshua » Mon Jun 13, 2016 9:55 am

Roberto Saviano, an anti-mafia journalist during a rare appearance at the Hay Literary Festival wrote:The finanical services industry in London have facilitated a system that makes Britain the most corrupt country in the world.

Banks in London allow offshore criminals to pump their money into the country’s economy.

If I asked what is the most corrupt place on earth, you might say it’s Afghanistan, maybe Greece, Nigeria, the south of Italy. I would say it is the UK.

It’s not UK bureaucracy, police, or politics, but what is corrupt is the financial capital. Ninety per cent of the owners of capital in London have their headquarters offshore.

Tax havens in UK dependencies like Jersey and the Cayman islands are the access gates to criminal capital in Europe and the UK is the country that allows it.

Leaving the European Union would expose the UK to more organized crimes.

HSBC bank is an example of a British institution that handled criminal capital in the country.
Saviano is the author of international bestselling books Gomorra and ZeroZeroZero.

The pirates (high seas robbers) of old worked for the kings of England, transformed that ugly Island into an acceptable Kingdom in Europe. They have become much more sophisticated these days with their trickery but they have not changed.

There are two types of Britons.

Among ordinary Britons it is considered immoral not to pay tax and contribute to the system.

Wealthy, elite Britons on the other hand view the system as something to take advantage of and have all sorts of ways to avoid tax.

Ordinary Britons are aware of 'repressive regimes' around the world.

Elite Britons are busy selling weapons to those repressive regimes.
