    As viewed from the USA it is the UK itself that is, by far, the most corrupt offshore haven. For our European business we should cut all ties with the UK and deal with countries such as Germany and France.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
