   2   0 Blog, Regular Features

In our September 2016 September 2016 podcast:How a conman can devastate the lives of thousands of ordinary people, aided and abetted by the offshore industry – banks, law firms and accountants all happy to look the other way and not ask questions. Plus: we discuss the latest leak from the Bahamas, #BahamasLeaks and Apple’s 13 billion euro underpaid tax bill: a defining moment in the battle between the low/no-tax world big corporations would like to see and democratic, accountable governance in the public interest.

“Apple deliberately, puposely, and for many decades has rejected the values and benefts that flow from democracy and fair markets…Markets are being rigged by big companies like Apple and by their tax advisors and by countries who do these deals.”

John Christensen, Tax Justice Network on #AppleTax

“The UK is the most corrupt country on earth, anyone with a modicum of interest in corruption will tell you that the City of London is the biggest Laundromat of corrupt money and black money and drug money that there is.”

Alek Boyd, anti-corruption blogger, journalist and asset recovery specialist
