Guidorama Investigation: Guardian Offices Owned Offshore

Day two of the Guardian’s ongoing Offshore Secrets investigation focused on “who is buying up London: the real identities behind Britain’s secret property deals”. Apparently some 100,000 tax avoiders have been purchasing British properties and offices using offshore companies, hiding their dealings in the UK and reducing their bill to the exchequer. Wouldn’t it be ironic if the Guardian’s very own offices were owned by an offshore company? Surely not…

Guido can reveal that 90 King’s Place, the Guardian’s offices in central London, is owned by a tax exempt offshore investment trust managed from Germany:


If and when the trust’s owners ever decide to sell the property, bought for £234 million and now worth considerably more, the owners could sell the trust offshore rather than the property itself and avoid all UK taxes. The trust itself is exempt from corporation tax in Germany. The Treasury will be denied millions of pounds.

It is incredible that the Guardian is paying millions to an offshore trust which is structured in such a way that it pays no corporation tax anywhere in the world. Guidorama tried to contact James Ball, the Guardian investigations journalist at the forefront of the Offshore Secrets series, he said he was too ill to speak to us, the Guardian Media Group’s press office claims that all the press officers are abroad. Caught on camera Patrick Wintour, the paper’s political editor, pleaded ignorance.

The hypocrisy of the Guardian moralising about tax-avoiding offshore owned properties when it is actually based in one is priceless …

WATCH: Nadine’s Bug Burial

An adamant Nads insisted she could handle being trapped in a coffin with 3,000 cockroaches and 5,000 crickets before her bug burial last night, telling viewers: “I’ve got to deliver. Got to win. Nothing’s going to stop me doing it“. Much to Guido’s disappointment she lasted for only four of the ten minutes required to win the challenge. All those people voted for her and then she left half way through…

Nadine has a chance to redeem herself this evening as she prepares to dine on something unpleasant. At least she’s winning the popular vote…

Max Clifford Accuses Former Tory Minister
Says Alan Clark Interfered With Underage Girls

This explosive video from a few years ago has re-surfaced on the internet. He who knows where all the bodies are buried, the tabloid publicist Max Clifford, names Alan Clark as one of the alleged Tory paedophiles. Boasting  about how he made the Harkesses a lot of money – Valerie the then 57-year-old wife of James Harkess, her daughters Josephine, 34 sister Alison, 36 – for their tale of the seduction of all three by Clark:

“The only slightly serious side about it was he’d actually interfered with those girls from the age of fourteen.”

Clifford goes on to boast that: “I’ve got all the evidence. I’m the one who’s hidden it from the world. I know where everything is and the proof is”Words he may come to regret…

Will this appear in the tabloids? Don’t count on it, Max is close to editors. He trades stories with them, suppressing stories about a clients who wants to keep secrets for a stories about clients who wants the limelight. Max has plenty he wants to keep hidden…

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
