Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, wants to remain a tax haven (Image: Getty Images)Get the biggest daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeMore newslettersThank you for subscribingWe have more newslettersShow meSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailA super sneaky move by the Tory Government on Monday averted what could have been a terrible constitutional crisis.I’m not talking about trumped up claims of a Brexit power grab of Brussels regulations, or Keith Brown’s loose talk of an illegal independence referendum.No, the constitutional crisis avoided in the Commons was to save the face of the super wealthy who secret their money in the British Crown dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.Fearing a defeat that would force these tax haven islands to comply with financial transparency rules, the Government did what has become something of a habit and dramatically delayed the Commons debate.The Paradise Papers reveal that the Queen is the worst parasite of them allThe islands had threatened a constitutional crisis if they were forced by Westminster to introduce public registers revealing just who owns companies there.Just who would lead the Jersey Yes campaign is not clear but the pressure from the offshore accountantsindependence conglomerate had the desired effect.These islands have the protection of the Queen, the Royal Navy, and bear passports of whatever colour the UK finally settles on. But they are self governing and not normally bound by legislation passed by Westminster.Regulation without representation would be on the Boston tea party scale of a crisis, not the Keith Brown storm in a tea cup kind.So the Crown dependencies will continue with their cloaked, tax haven status, hiding the identity of the super rich, the shady and the owners of many acres of Scottish land who remain anonymous, itself a shameful state of 21st century affairs.The islands claim that they have sufficient financial safeguards and that transparency would undermine their status as offshore havens (which I thought was the point) and push money launderers and the like to the far reaches of slack regulation, places like, er, the British Virgin Islands.In fact, the British Overseas Territories like Caymen and BVI are being forced to publish ownership registers but that too has been watered down and delayed until 2023.I don’t think the Conservative Government fears a rise of an Independence for Guernsey movement.Read MoreTop news stories todayThe reason it pulled the legislation to avoid more transparency is more likely because it is beholden to its own party funders.The Tories have raised more than 5.5million in the last decade from donors living in tax havens and their UK companies. People who are resident abroad for tax purposes can still register as overseas voters and so get around electoral laws that ban donations from abroad.A Times investigation has revealed a third of British billionaires have moved to tax havens over the past decade.
No, I had no illusions when I took on health care. It was always going to be hard. I knew from the beginning that seven Presidents had tried it and seven Presidents had failed. By the time that Buck was buried, Blanche was in the Platte County Jail awaiting trial. A Des Moines doctor had extracted glass from her eyes, but she only had limited vision in her right eye and none in her left.

Goodman. Toward evidence based medical statistics. 1: The P value fallacy. While some militant groups have warned that the Pearl kidnapping is just the beginning of a violent resistance to Musharraf’s crackdown on terrorism, the Pakistani public at large seems to give Musharraf broad support.

I don’t get how people struggle so much with these concepts.

These hotel workers are getting compensated by not having to build any real skills and not having any real risk in their job.

Being a hooker gave me the power over them that changed my life.The day I decided to become a sex worker, I took myself over to a mature ladies brothel in Chatswood, in Sydney north.

Is really a business fairness issue here, because there is a burden shift going on, when companies do get these credits, people should have a right to see who is getting them, how much they worth and what kind of bang for the buck the taxpayers are getting in terms of job creation and wages and all that good stuff.

I think it’s a great idea in principle. It is very easy to become lost in an MMO game as you are essentially “forced” to progress through the game content, and games tend to contain a number of “artificial timesinks” to ensure you continue playing (and therefore paying as most MMO’s require monthly subscription fees). The main problem I see with this is that instead of logging off the computer and going out into the real world, people will simply use the time they are forced offline to play another game or research for hints and tips on the Internet; in essence it does not really curb their game play at all but teaches them how to play smarter and make better use of their online time..

If Lance cooperates fully with any pending investigation and then accepts their rulings, regardless of the due process and result, he cannot lose in the long term court of public opinion, if not his own soul. Even in the unlikely scenario Armstrong is found guilty of some misconduct, he can either let the accounting swallow his entire career or he can be Jonas and light the fire to see what good he can make of it. As Lance knows so very well, we pick our battles and there are much tougher ones than rule interpretation in some two wheeled game.
