#Brexit IS about escaping tax + financial #transparency. Conservatives and their donors are terrified of wealth being exposed. UK govt HAVE NOT transposed EU's 5th anti-money laundering directive by the deadline. See here... researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefi…
The EU's 5th #AML Directive requires 'public registers of beneficial owners' of companies. Tory leaders since 2015 desperately tried to exempt UK trusts, crown dependencies + tax havens from this law. Will expose vested interests + tax evaders. Hence #brexit haste.
In fact they don't intend to implement the public registers of company ownership in UK crown dependencies fully, EVER.
It would be the end of them.

Other EU countries don't have such lax donor and registration rules so don't appreciate the shockwaves caused by 5th AML in UK.
This article helps explain how weak company registration is already (intentionally) making UK a massive money-laundering and tax evasion weak link, helping super-rich to channel huge wealth via UK 'shell' companies to escape transparency and tax theguardian.com/world/2019/jul…
This article notes UK govt failing to legislate for public registers of company owners, as the EU's Anti-Money Laundering (#AML) Directive requires, and which #brexit gets them out of. BBC have a duty to report this fully. eu-ocs.com/tax-evasion-in…
It is the BBC's duty to inform the public why the Tories and their donors fear this directive, the #brexit links and the huge delays to implementing. We will need to take legal action if not and demand full inquiry into BBC motives. This looks corrupt.
And yes, it also links to the #russiareport as many of the Conservative party's Russian friends and donors have funneled cash via UK shell companies and crown dependency tax havens. Shocking to see the BBC cover this up.
Trillions laundered each year, c5% global GDP, linked to some of the most damaging criminality incl sex trafficking, illegal trades wildlife+ human exploitation and mass theft. Russian, US, UK oligarchs all depend on our crown dependencies to continue these crimes.
