Look in the Mirror: Millions Held Offshore

“David Cameron has behaved like a chancer over offshore funds,” blasted the Mirror’s leader on Friday: “Voice of the Mirror says hard to believe the PM will end the use of offshore financial hideaways by the filthy rich when he is cut from the same cloth”. What the Mirror didn’t tell its readers is that their paper is also “cut from the same cloth”…

When Trinity Mirror tried to raise funds by issuing new shares to investors, it set up TM Finance (Jersey) Ltd, a “special purpose vehicle” to collect the proceeds offshore. Trinity Mirror’s annual report discloses the existence of “The Trinity Mirror Employee Benefit Trust”, a pension scheme whose beneficiaries could well include Mirror employees like chief offshore critic Kevin Maguire. Is it really Mirror Associate Editor our Kev’s trust? Appleby Global (Jersey) Ltd administer the Mirror’s offshore millions boasting: “Our fiduciary operation in Jersey has provided a broad range of offshore fiduciary and administration services… Our clients include high net worth private individuals and families along with an enviable array of global and UK businesses, such as… Trinity Mirror”. Please, tell us more about those “offshore financial hideaways”…

Then there is the Trinity International Restricted Share Plan, administered by Barclays Wealth Trustees (Guernsey) Ltd, another offshore trustee. Mirror, Mirror against the wall, who is the most hypocritical of them all?

UPDATE: Our Kev says “not me guv”.
