Last week there was a vote in the House of Commons for a public inquiry into the Panama scandal. The leak has brought the world’s attention to shady tax havens and how people squirrel their money away.
The people of the UK probably want answers, but we won’t get any as 300 Tory MPs voted to block the inquiry, against 266 MPs who would like an open debate about it.
Here is the list below (see link) of the people who serve us, who have decided in this case to keep the truth to themselves.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
