Barclays memos online

20 Mar

The controversial Barclays memos, which the bank has blocked The Guardian from publishing, have been submitted to WikiLeaks – the anonymous online document database.

The documents expose Barclays “tax-avoidance” measures – scamming tax-payers out of over £1bn.

Today Barclays secured the continuation of the gag order, including a provision which stops the paper from pointing its readers in the direction of the Wikileaks page.

Sunny is requesting that bloggers step and in and link to the memos, making a mockery of Barclays’ attempts to block public knowledge of their alleged deception. Click here to view.

    Sigh “No man in the country is under the smallest obligation, moral or other, so to arrange his legal relations to his business or property as to enable the Inland Revenue to put the largest possible shovel in his stores. The Inland Revenue is not slow, and quite rightly, to take every advantage which is open to it under the Taxing Statutes for the purposes of depleting the taxpayer’s pocket. And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue”James Avon Clyde, Lord ClydeDo you actively seek to pay more tax than you are legally obliged to pay?
