    The Panama papers scandal.

    Panama Papers: The Mossack Fonseca leak reveals elite's tax havens

    Eleven million documents were leaked from one of the world's most secretive companies, Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca.

    They show how Mossack Fonseca has helped clients launder money, dodge sanctions and avoid tax.

    The company says it has operated beyond reproach for 40 years and has never been charged with criminal wrong-doing.

    Get the full story from The BBC HERE




    This looks as if this is going to push the Watergate scandal into the shade as there are the names of hundreds of influential people in these papers.

    Already, the Iceland Prime Minister has fallen on his sword over this and even David Cameron's father has been drawn into this scandal.

    Much more to come on this I think.

    This is just too delicious to not get pleasure from it.

    Because the media love to let news like this out in dribs and drabs we are going to see new revelations about the Panama papers in the news for some months to come.

    I certainly hope that we see and hear a lot of names being released once these papers have been properly scrutinized.

    I can't wait.

    Hi all,

    Good show !. Don't know who did all this, but its caused a hell of a lot of angst already !!.

    Notice once again that Iceland reacted very speedily over this. Prime minister GONE !!.

    I am sure Cameron and a load of other politicians have got sticky fingers here..Don't expect him to resign though. That said his position is on the ropes. This, along with a botched job at managing the steel crisis, broken promises about a 'fair' EU referendum, lies, and now a petition of over 100,000 signatures forcing a debate about his crappy leaflet on the resaon for the UK to stay in the EU....On top of that we have to put up with the sly George Osborne and the crappy Jeremy Hunt. Its all heading for a big crash.

    Yes, if some miracle does not happen I can see the Tory government melting down right before our eyes.

    This mob are already split right down the middle and if nothing is done I can see a quick election on the cards just like what happened in Iceland.

    Isn't politics fun these days ? Twisted Evil

    Cameron even deeper in the Mire.

    The prime minister took the unprecedented decision to release his personal tax records on Saturday, as growing anger over revelations in the Panama Papers threatened to derail his premiership.

    David Cameron: "I know I should have handled it better. Not a great week".

    It started with a bungled answer to a routine question – and escalated beyond David Cameron’s control. Now, after the toughest week of his career, his reputation is on the line

    This extraordinary move seems set to plunge David Cameron into further controversy, as it emerged that his mother transferred two separate payments of £100,000 to his accounts in 2011, allowing the family estate to avoid a potential £80,000 worth of inheritance tax.

    ..................................................

    If he is on the fiddle, I wonder how many more will be found out via the Panama Papers.
