British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has "agreed" to a request from his finance minister, Rishi Sunak, for a review to determine whether he had stuck to the rules on ministerial declarations, knowing that this was never the issue. This PR trick is following widespread criticisms over Sunak's family tax evasion by non-dom status, not any "declarations" issue. However, this process will not be the subject of an external, independent, and transparent public inquiry.
Does Boris Johnson
really believe that the British people are idiots to think that the problem is "declarations" and not the "Non-dom tax evasion”???
We all know the outcome before this process is undertaken, so what is the point of this fake show?
Will this staged investigation convince the public that tax evasion by the rich family of the man who imposes very heavy taxes on the entire public, is really okay?
