Tax Havens?

My Dad worked in a coal mine.
Down the pit.

His weekly pay was given in partly transparent brown paper envelopes through which you saw the coins and notes.
He never learned about tax havens.

Today we learn that our Prime Minister has an inheritance shielded by a tax haven of several hundred thousand pounds.

Is it comforting to the nation to know that the PM’s future security doesn’t rely on inheriting brown paper envelopes through which you could see the coins and notes?
In fact he’ll receive hundreds of thousands of pounds from his Dad, who died in 2012.

Oh PM, what a shame that the NHS didn’t benefit from your father’s death. 
But then that’s the system you want.
Where those that have can buy what they can afford.
And those who can’t do without.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
