Yacht’s Next For Multi-Millionaire Staggers Tycoon

Looks like there is still some money left over for £300 million Mike Danson, despite all the cash loaned to the New Statesman interest free and with no repayment date. Sky’s Mark Kleinman reports that Danson is in talks for a deal with a potential new sister publication for the Staggers: Boat International, “the world’s leading publisher in the super yacht industry”.

Progressive Media Group’s latest venture would see them offering advice on such progressive issues as “Should you organise megayacht finance as an individual or through an offshore corporate structure?” Looking forward to their next Christmas party on a boat off the Caymans…

    On my last ‘fact finder’ to Monaco i saw Abramovich’s yacht. Its moored along the coast as Eze as it can’t get in the harbour at Monaco, which is a pretty small harbour.
    don’t blame him really.
    Monaco is full of cruise ships this time of year. Its a bugger getting in and out with all the day trippers zipping about.

    Yes you mong, you had two 65,000 ton ones ordered and built in Scotland from English taxes. Any chance of our money back for these utter wastes of money?

    “Should you organise megayacht finance as an individual or through an offshore corporate structure?”

    With your vast wealth Gweeds. you ae obviously aware of the fairly recent tax. dodge scam for hyper billionaires:

    there are as. we write. being built two panamax class. cruisers which will. be docked out as veritable floating cities .

    The accomodation is a monimum of a five room. suite complete with room. service and self catering if desired plus of course all the joys of golf course shopping malls. gyms restaurants nightlife etc.

    “guests ” sign a lease for. xyz years and they and families live permanently on this floating paradise happily circumnavigating the globe and putting in for junkets and supplies at the most luxurious. ports of call going ashore if the mood takes them .

    all. terra firma domicile will. have been. sold and asset /patrimony. tied up in ringfenced trusts in. reliable and still discreet jurisdictions. .

    at death they opt for cremation or burial at sew such that no bodily residue is interred. and thus their heirs. have no exposure to fiscal redress.

    thus this charmed elite spend their days as non jurisdictional. entities and pay not one red cent of tax to any “body”.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
