#Barclays avoided nearly £2BILLION in tax via an arrangement in tax haven Luxembourg: it paid less than 1% on profits since 2009, when it booked profits from the $15bn sale of a fund management business there rather than the UK.

Barclays employs only 54 staff in Luxembourg, but it is currently the bank’s third most profitable jurisdiction behind the US & UK, with turnover of £1.1bn last year. Low staff costs mean Barclays can turn nearly all of that income from corporate & investment banking into profit.
The bank has 46,000 staff in the UK & nearly 10,000 in the US. Cumulatively, Barclays’ Luxembourg operations have made £6.6bn in profits since 2013, according to annual tax documents.

Thanks to the generous tax arrangement, it has paid just £46m on those earnings, or about 1%.

Ihr denkt, die #Grunen sind die Anti-Lobbyismus-Partei in #Deutschland? Leider falsch gedacht. Die Partei, die sich sonst gerne kritisch gegenüber #Lobbyismus zeigt, war und ist selbst auf vielen Ebenen mit ihm verstrickt, wie die folgenden Beispiele zeigen. /PN
Eveline #Lemke war Umweltministerin in #RLP. Nach nur einem Jahr wechselte sie in den #Aufsichtsrat einer Windkraftfirma. Als Ministerin förderte sie massiv den Bau von Windkraftanlagen. Hat der spätere Beruf die politischen Entscheidungen beeinflusst? /PN de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eveline_L…
Die #Grünen zählen zu den härtesten Nichtraucherschützern. Das hinderte Marianne #Tritz, Mitarbeiterin im Büro von Fritz #Kuhn im Jahr 2008nicht, direkt von den Grünen als Lobbyistin an die Spitze der Tabakindustrie zu wechseln. #GruenerLobbyismus welt.de/wirtschaft/art…

This is my neighborhood & many of us showed up tonight at #Barclays for the life & dignity of #GeorgeFloyd & solidarity w/ #BlackLiveMatter. Massive #NYPD presence & vastly peaceful crowd. 1/ Image
We came home puzzled at what happened & I'm hearing ppl outside on the street making sense of it. #NYPD deployed mace & the air smelled of it. Someone burned a sign. Someone else set off a fireworks popper. But this was not character of the crowd gathered. 2/
The crowd I witnessed outside #Barclays looked like my neighborhood. Diverse, calm, helping each other, holding signs expressing anger at black lives needlessly taken. People handing out food. 3/

If I was investigating #Epstein and #PrinceAndrew I would take a really good look at this web of connections:

I’ll start a thread with Amanda...

And what’s happening with Newcastle Utd thetimes.co.uk/article/newcas…
‘Amanda Louise Staveley is a British businesswoman notable chiefly for her connections with Middle Eastern investors. In 2008 Staveley played a prominent role in the investment of £7.3 billion in Barclays by the ruling families of Abu Dhabi and Qatar, and

#Epstein #Maxwell #Wexner #Staley #Barclays #Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently met in Jerusalem with Barclays World Bank CEO Jes Staley
Staley told of the technology incubator he established in Israel to develop Israeli technologies in the ongoing work of Barclays World. Netanyahu welcomed the work being done in Israel.
Edward Staley, Les's grandfather, was the Chairman of the W. T. Grant Company. It was a nationwide variety-store chain that went bankrupt in 1976.

W.T. Grant built its reputation on low-priced soft goods (clothing, linens +sewing fabrics).

CLOTHING LIKE LESLIE WEXNER.

Let’s take a closer look at Jeffrey Epstein’s friend, Jes Staley; a sneak into allegations of fraud at Elon Musk’s Tesla; and other improprieties.

A whistleblower
at Barclay's made the allegation that the bank “knew” about the “Tesla fraud.”

“It happened in 2011. Barclays knew about it in 2013.”

Some background on Jes Staley, (friend of Jeffrey Epstein and one who visited him while he was in "jail").

Staley is American citizen. He began working at Barclays in December of 2015. Prior to that he worked for JPMorgan for more than 30 years + briefly at BlueMountain Capital.

The short outline version is as below in this thread. It's still quite long because it started in 2006 & the UK Authorities, mainly the #MetPolice, have invested a lot of time & resources in trying to get rid of this problem by hook or by crook

It started with the #MetPolice being caught out falsifying paperwork - a search warrant. When caught out they tried to frame me for a crime I did not commit. #bbcnews #royalfamily #Metpoliceuk

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.
