On the Money

Brilliant quote from the Trade Onion regarding the Panama Papers:

“The Panama Papers is a middle class obsession with rules and economic ethics. Meanwhile the class war continues and we will continue to get fucked over unless and until we rise up against the system.”

To add my own piece to that I would like to say that whilst it is very true that rules, procedure and economic ethics are a particularly middle-class obsession, what the Panama Papers saga can show many is the outright double-standards and hypocrisy of the system. Many previously deluded people and those with illusions in the system are now somewhat beginning to think twice. Amongst the working-class this should be welcomed and encouraged.
