UK – With the release of the so called Panama Papers revealed that the great and the good have been hiding their tax affairs in offshore schemes.
In an inversion of the normal state of affairs, members of the Conservative party have been taking it as qudos and a badge of honour to have been named.
Conversely for the member of Parliament for Much Thrashing in the Marsh, Sir Peter File is distraught that his name and tax details have yet been released.
When ever he goes near a group of his fellow party members they all point at him and chant, “Who pays all his taxes? Who pays all his taxes?”
A very depressed and drunk Peter File told our reporter, “How will I be able to hold my head up at the party conference?”
“The party membership and more importantly the party donors will all think that I am incompetent!”
“They expect me to be a veinal lying thieving bastard! I do my best but unless my name appears my career is finished!”
