The project has been called the Paradise Papers. It reveals:

Millions of pounds from the Queen’s private estate has been invested in a Cayman Islands fund – and some of her money went to a retailer accused of exploiting poor families and vulnerable people.

Extensive offshore dealings by Donald Trump’s cabinet members, advisers and donors, including substantial payments from a firm co-owned by Vladimir Putin’s son-in-law to the shipping group of the US commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross.

How Twitter and Facebook received hundreds of millions of dollars in investments that can be traced back to Russian state financial institutions.

The tax-avoiding Cayman Islands trust managed by the Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau’s chief moneyman.

A previously unknown $450m offshore trust that has sheltered the wealth of Lord Ashcroft.

Aggressive tax avoidance by multinational corporations, including Nike and Apple.

How some of the biggest names in the film and TV industries protect their wealth with an array of offshore schemes.

The billions in tax refunds by the Isle of Man and Malta to the owners of private jets and luxury yachts.

The secret loan and alliance used by the London-listed multinational Glencore in its efforts to secure lucrative mining rights in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The complex offshore webs used by two Russian billionaires to buy stakes in Arsenal and Everton football clubs.

What I would do and what will be done are very different things. This will go away in 2 weeks and nothing will ever happen.
Matt, don't be a fag. Post some huge cocks.

Sadly, you're probably right. The public just happened to get a glimpse of how the powers that be divvy up the world and not a goddamn thing will come out of it. If media of any type which might inform the public is owned by interests who are involved in this, why would it ever be allowed to get any traction? Kudos to The Guardian for trying at least.

EDIT: I take this back slightly. I'll bet the Americans are the ones who get off scot-free while a couple'a Europeans are used as token convictions in minimum security prisons with a guaranteed fortune after their year in confinement.
