Open Britain’s Web of Offshore-Owned Offices

A Guido investigation can reveal that all three addresses registered by Open Britain, the continuity Remain campaign, are owned offshore. Open Britain and its predecessor Stronger In have campaigned against tax havens – they claimed the Panama Papers were a reason why Britain should remain in the EU. Yet their registered office, St Bride’s House in Salisbury Square, is owned by Rreef St Bride’s Ltd, a company incorporated offshore in Jersey whose address is cited in the Panama Papers. “The EU helps Britain tackle tax avoidance in the wake of the Panama Papers,” Open Britain have said.

What about their HQ? Until the summer they were based at 16 Dowgate Hill, at an office previously used by Stronger In. It was declared by Will Straw to Companies House as his correspondence address. This building is also owned offshore in Jersey by a company called Karlton Ltd. They were grandstanding about tax havens from an office owned in a tax haven…

Recently Open Britain moved to a new office at Tenter House in Moorgate, which is the HQ of multi-millionaire tycoon Roland Rudd’s lobbying company Finsbury. You guessed it, Tenter House is also owned offshore – it is ultimately controlled by Linnet Ltd, “a company incorporated in the Isle of Man and controlled by trusts”. As they campaign in support of an EU crackdown on tax havens, all three offices registered by Open Britain are – by strange coincidence – owned offshore…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
