We always knew that the super rich hide much of their money away, but that still does not detract from the horrifying revelations of this leak. I fear we live in a faux democracy; a society that has all the appearance of a nation that treats everyone the same, but under that veneer is an ideologically driven system, assembled to benefit those who already have it all. It remains to be seen what information will emerge if/when Cameron publishes his tax returns. But for the public, I suspect the damage is already done.

Everyone who knows me, and many who don't but who have heard me speak or followed my social media updates, will know that I'm a big sports fan and, in particular, a big football fan. It's been an enjoyable season for me too, with my team, Charlton Athletic, winning our division with a record number of points, only losing five out of 46 matches.

I, for one, am not impressed, nor do I expect most of the British people are, as they struggle to survive the hardships created by the "moneymen" with their casino-type capitalism.
