He'd be out buying a red flag to keep flying here and looking for the lyrics to "The Internationale".

Blood staining the wattle and all that.

I see that Chris Bowen was bagging the Govt at the National Press Club today over the current level of debt and lack of a surplus to change the direction of the ballooning debt.

I wonder if he'll be counselling Shortarse to back the current budget to assist in the above?? Methinks not.

The MM keeps up his attacks on the Turnbull govt. Describes it as a member of the world weak government club. Guess he wants the PM to more resemble a Mugabe, Duterte, Erdogan or Trump and if Truffles is incapable he is available.

He's in Israel getting an hon doctorate (at taxpayer's expense), tho given Pell's travails he might be converting.

I wonder if and when the MM will get a real job.

my spills are less and always reported to the corporate regulator.

the point is not the amount of spill but the secrecy and lack of prosecution.

on another topic I see the offspring of an ATO commissioner are due to face court - dad also to face charges

only a piddling $140M, but still a bit more than chump change

hopefully this is a shot over the bows of the ATO to get stuck into corporate evasion....mind you the brownies are making corporate tax minimal and effectively voluntary

the company tax cut is only a cut if they re-invest the money into the company

if they pay it out as dividend there is effectively no cut

Weird case. If you have gotten $100m+ from efffectively stealing from the ATO, and your dad is a senior ATO officer, WTF would you flaunt your wealth like this guy seems to have.

The flashy cars I can understand, the jets were probably pushing your luck, the SDBs with the cash yeah, but the guns would suggest maybe a little bit more than corporate crime.

Well overthrowing countries by force is cheaper than buying them. More of a feelgood aspect to it as well.

Former 60 Minutes producer Steve Barrett is involved. Seems he helped one of the syndicate members extort the others by threatening to expose them. He hasn't been charged with anything but can't be good.

The Dep Commissioner had a key role investigating the Panama Papers.......this may be compromised...meanwhile when in Panama I visited/or more watched the fonsecca premises....no sign of PM Truffles. He is clearly innocent.

How small did they have to get each of the "registered office of..." signage to fit them all on the front door?

The address for the org repping for commercial tv used to be in this little red brick house in Mosman. Similar set-up, though there must be a bit of money in it as the land must have been worth a motza.

Interesting article by Keneally on Twiggy's $400M ... worth a read. FWIW I cannot abide this tax avoider and low rent character. Of course he will claim the donation as a deduction. 

Reminds me of Pratt the corporate filth who was near deified in Melbourne - who over his life donated around $135M - but made $750M in one price fixing scam.

Warning - Unhappily the article tries the impossible of putting Shortpants in a good light.

There is an unflattering article about Twiggy in the Weekend Oz about Murrin Murrin and Native Title settlements

If Kenneally is such a tax expert she makes a lot of misrepresentations about FMG and Twiggy's tax affairs
