Oh yes. I shall be watching that one with interest. :)

I don't know if I am surprised or disappointed that, other than the aptly named 'Blairmore Holdings', there doesn't seem to be any mention of British politicians and their families - yet.

Time will tell. *yes

It's been mentioned that Cameron's late father was heavily involved. If so then Cameron's inherited wealth is derived from the morally reprehensible if not downright illegal affair. Still he's a Tory and a toff, so it's OK!

and he appears motivated to closing the funds down as a tax avoidance scam.

I just watched it - very poor, typical of modern low quality doorstepping journalism.

There are lots of facts coming out today, but the BBC decided it was easier and presumably cheaper to doorstep a few people and get them to decline to comment.

The story is interesting, the program wasn't

Not that Tony (or Cherie) Blair would ever involve themselves in such schemes. But then of course Tony only went into politics for the good of the working classes. :rolleyes:

May not be on here for a while until the journalists go away from the gatehouse area, I will be in hiding as some twit hit the forward button and all my details went with the others. Now the debt collectors and HMRC know were to find me to say nothing about the local paper shop!

Shall we have a whip round to pay your paper bill? :D

Having listened to the discussion on Vine today about Kim Philby, just don't admit to anything and you'll be fine. *yes

I have been advised to get into politics in our upcoming local election as this lessens the seriousness of the moral ineptitude.
