A GUEST POSTING:
It was a huge embarrassment to Nigel Farage when his off-shore tax avoidance scheme was exposed by the press. He had of course recently criticised such schemes in the European Parliament. But of course, if it is him, it is different. He can do anything he wants.
Questions were also asked about his business interests, and his tax affairs. With regard to the latter, we understand that questions are still being asked.
In his own defence Farage claimed that, amongst other things, he had no business interests. ‘I packed up business completely in 2004.’ he told the press.
This was not entirely true, as he was at that time director and sole shareholder of Thorn in the side ltd.
Now we note that he has revised his declaration of financial interests to the European Parliament.
He acknowledges that he is paid by the company a sum between 1001 - 5000 euros per month.
The question is, was he receiving an income at the time he told the press that he had ‘ packed up business completely in 2004.’?
Investigative journalists might want to take a close look at this, we are reliably informed.
