Hope they include their own offshore companies, eh?

I expect they’ll be excluded due to lack of space.

I haven’t read the article yet, but IIRC it was about the names behind the offshore vehicles. The Scott Trust has it’s individuals documented in the public domain, I’m pretty sure.
So your problem is?

There is no “Scott Trust”: it’s the Scott Trust Ltd, is it not?

Is Jesse Hester from Mauritius, named in the linked article, related to Carl Hester, the Sark-based Olympic dressage gold medallist? That would be an interesting story, would it not, if they are related? Can’t be too many Hesters in the world and a link with Sark would be quite a coincidence…..

Looks like it might be either a brother or half brother as I think Jesse is around 36 years old.

I always call it “the tax-dodging Guardian”.
Don’t forget this masterpiece of dissembling from Alan Rusbridger: http://www.guardian.co.uk/help/insideguardian/2011/feb/22/blogpost
The digested read: “it’s okay for us to avoid tax because we use the money for good”.

“the Scott Trust is still going strong … It is now a limited company …”: aye, so it ain’t a Trust, is it?

dearieme…does that mean that Arnald was wrong? Maybe the burgers are not cooking well today.

Don’t worry, phone hacker David Leigh said the Guardian’s financial affairs are 100% legit, so move on wingnuts, nothing to see here!

yawn. The point is that the Ben Owners are published, the Guardian investigation is about how secret the benificiaries really are and what lengths they take to ensure that and for what purpose. If all you can do is repeat ad nauseum something that has been explained before, then that makes you a 4 year old child.
