Scottish FM Sturgeon Sums-up UK PM Cameron’s Tax Position

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon spoke for many on the UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s tax issue, as shown by the Panama papers. Quoted in on “The Scotsman” newspaper she said :-
“David Cameron must now be completely transparent around his tax affairs. After four days of ducking and diving it is now clear that he personally benefited from offshore investments. Whether or not it was legal, the tortuous way the information was dragged out of the Prime Minister leaves his credibility in tatters – and completely betrays public trust. And to claim that the UK government is cracking down on offshore investments and tax havens while blocking EU moves to increase transparency is utterly hypocritical. There are also now questions to answer over whether David Cameron’s interests have influenced his actions in Parliament – and if they should have been declared in full before now.”
