Richard Murphy is a UK chartered accountant. He was senior partner of a practicing firm and director of a number of entrepreneurial companies before becoming one of the founders of the Tax Justice Network in 2002.
That’s odd. The TJN don’t list him as a founder.
And we might want to replace “entrepreneurial” with “tax dodging” as in Trivial Pursuit and Ireland, eh?
Richard created the country-‐by-‐country reporting
Err, no. Extractive Industries stuff was created while he was still tax dodging as a senior partner, sorry.
And one of his suggestions:
7.2.3. Place the burden of proof on the taxpayer to show that this had happened
He’s proposing to over turn the entire basic foundation of our legal system. That the bastards have to prove we’ve done some named, specific, thing wrong, not us having to prove we ain’t.
Does the Lords still have the power to hang people? Please?
