    I am concerned that you buy drinks at a company that aggressively tax avoids. And provides over-priced drinks with in many cases lots of sugar.
    Can't stand British coffee shops, don't particularly care about them avoiding tax, in the same way I don't care much about the Panama papers, if a loophole is there, use it.

    Ture , the main problem I have about the panama papers is that some people are over - reacting to it .... Especially regarding Mr Cameron , Labour are already jumping on the bandwagon calling on him to resign despite the fact he hasn't had the chance to properly explain himself

    I expect labour figures will be dragged into Panama, I expect UKIP the SNP and lib dems will all be involved, even if it is on!y indirectly via major donors, the only British Westminster party that's safe is probably the greens, and only because they have no money or backers in the first place.

    Definitely a possibility..... I don't think the Lib Dems or UKIP will he directly involved but if doners have then its drags them in .... No doubt Mr Osborne is involved .... Who would want to back the greens ( financially) anyway ? Its a wasted investment!

    The deluded don't see it as a waste, they genuinely believe the Greens can win lots of seats, and even if they don't that they can bring down the government.

    Did they forget parties can actually change their positions? The Tories are also at an advantage on this front because they can already see what they need to change to, the "progressive" left cannot.

    On another note, here is Dan Hannan's standard 5 minute talk on the EU in written form. http://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/04/t...f-by-brussels/
