Tax Evasion & Wealth Preservation - Tory style

Tax evasion costs the UK around £15 Billion per year alone which is shocking enough however the combined figures for evasion and avoidance by the rich including business people and even our politicians, comes to a staggering amount estimated as being up to £120 Billion per year.


And yet who do politicians and the media focus upon? The alleged £1 Billion per year lost through alleged benefit fraud. The DWP's own figures have shown the 99.5% of sickness and disability claims are genuine. The amount of such fraud whilst unacceptable is a mere fraction of the amount being effectively stolen from the UK every year by the rich.


Why this discrepancy? The fact that 23 of the 29 members of the Cabinet are millionaires - not to mention however many others there are in the House of Commons and House of Lords. And who owns and hence controls the media: either Billionaires or the Tory government in the case of the BBC which has seen it's supposed impartiality evaporate to nothing.
