    We live in a society where surveillance and stop and search are used to prevent and deter crime.

    Anyone complaining is told
    "if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear"

    . . . . but when it comes to avoiding paying tax like the rest of us, many rich people want offshore banking kept anonymous.

    What a short memory you have!

    The riots of 2011, though "triggered" by the police shooting of Mark Duggan were not about that as thousands of people in many towns and cities were already unhappy about inequality, Government cuts, moral decay at the top ...

    But if you live in a comfortable bubble you won't understand or remember.

      Thats exactly what I thought. But apparently somebody does. The news keeps bangin on about companies and well off people hiding wealth abroad. Yet at one end of the world we got an ape with nuclear weapons posting gibberish on twitter, while at the the other we have a fat little oompa loompa firing missiles like most people fire bottle rockets on bonfire night. I dont think the general population has any f***s left to give about where rich ponces put their cash. Phobos probably, nobody would think to look there.
