“THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH” – CHAPTER SEVEN

Since his early childhood years, Isa did become a miracle – a miracle of an outstanding stupidity and stupendous parenting gone horribly wrong. Most toddlers have occasional tantrums, but Isa was an exceptionally talented drama queen, a spoiled brat whose frequent defiance against his parent’s wishes were well worth an Oscar. Isa’s mother, Nona and father, Ati struggled with their resilient child. Throughout the first three months of his attendance in the nursery, Isa’s face was moisturised by beads of tears flowing out of his brown eyes. Every morning he pleaded with his mother not to leave him at the nursery. Then, one morning, as Nona handed a tiny grey rucksack to Isa’s teacher standing on the other side of the nursery’s entrance door, Isa firmly clenched her feet. Nona tried to explain to Isa that every child hates their kindergarten in the first days, but later will hate leaving it.  “You are in the good hands of Miss Mesuese. The two of you will get on fine.”

“But, we won’t!” Alexander complained. “She’s constantly telling me what to do as if I’m one of her toys.”

“That is a cruel observation, Isa!” Nona replied firmly.“ You should apologise, right now!”

“You see! That’s exactly what she does to me, all the time.” Alexander confessed. “She constantly tells me what to do, as if she is my mother.”

Miss Mesuese was looking at him with a compassionate smile, clinching on his grey bag with her right hand. Nona stood up, and as she was about to leave, she apologised to the teacher. Nona held out her hands and bent over to forcefully engulf Isa’s tiny body into her arms. Alexander resisted and pushed her with his small grubby hands, looking down. Miss Mesuese tapped Nona’s left shoulder. After straightening her body, Nona left the entrance lobby and walked towards Ati, her husband waiting for her in his car. Nona stepped inside the car and closed the passenger door without saying a word.

After noticing Nona’s frowning face, Ati tried to reason with her.  “Don’t you stress yourself over this, Nona!”

 “But, I do not want to see him traumatised,” Nona confessed.

“Unless you are contemplating Isa’s premature death, there’s no escape from seeing him traumatised,” Ati concluded, and then laughed. “After all, he will eventually get married one day!”

A week later, Isa immersed himself into massacring strawberries at his nursery. Isa’s face was smeared with red juice as if he didn’t realise that fruits are for eating and not for face painting. Isa grabbed the empty plastic bowl and walked towards his teacher. Once he got within arms’ reach for her teacher, he pulled her red leather skirt.

The teacher turned around and asked.  “What’s the matter, Alex?”

“Could I have some more?” Alexander asked, lifting up his yellow bowl.

“What’s the magic word?”

“Abracadabra!” Alexander replied.

What a fucking loser! I’m not making this shit up. He really said it. 

The teacher laughed embarrassingly, covering her mouth with her long-slim fingers and tipped her head to the right. After she calmed down, she bowed towards Alexander. She stretched out her left index finger, holding it upwards and swinging it like a metronome pendulum.

“Did I say something wrong?” Alexander asked, glancing up at his teacher and seeking some guidance.

“No!” the teacher replied instantly, and after a brief hesitation, she added. “Your reply is ludicrously flawless, but that’s not the magic word I was looking for!”

“Hocus Pocus?” Alexander took another wild guess.

The teacher laughed again before replying.  “Wrong again! It’s more like Hocus Pleasus!”

Global education platform, my arse! This kid doesn’t even know the difference between the magic word for tricking others and for attaining something. Yet, miraculously, the future of mankind depends on him. Oddly enough, the nursery was called Bright Kids Nursery.

Boris Johnson failed to trick Jeremy Corbyn into an early general election and deliver Brexit

LABOUR LEADER ACCUSSES BORIS JOHNSON AND THE CONSERVATIVES OF USING BREXIT TO TURN THE UK INTO A TAX HAVEN

Boris Johnson decided to have an early general election, because he had a cunning plan – to deliver Brexit by dissolving the British parliament, and without elected MPs, the prime minister would be free to take the UK out of the EU, with or without a deal!


Thanks to Gina Miller, in early 2017, the Supreme Court decided that the prime minister can’t use monarchical powers to force through a Brexit deal without first getting the consent of the British parliament:

“ The article 50 process must and will involve a partnership between Parliament and the Executive. But that does not mean that legislation is required simply to initiate it. Legislation will undoubtedly be required to implement withdrawal, but the process, including the form and timing of any legislation, can and should be determined by Parliament not by the courts. That involves no breach of the constitutional principles which have been entrenched in our law since the 17th century, and no threat to the fundamental principle of Parliamentary sovereignty.”

https://www.supremecourt.uk/cases/docs/uksc-2016-0196-judgment.pdf

Therefore, the Supreme Court’s decision explicitly states that it is up to the British people to decide whether to leave or stay in the EU, but it is up to the British parliament to determine how we leave and not the British prime minister!

Boris Johnson’s cunning plan to deliver Brexit by dissolving the parliament

Failing to secure the consent of British Parliament, Boris Johnson had a cunning plan by having an early general election, and create a situation whereby due to the lack of MPs to endorse his Brexit, he could legally take the UK out of the EU on his own!

Claiming that the bill, which forces him to ask for an extension to the Brexit deadline if no deal had been agreed left him unable to negotiate a deal with the EU, Boris Johnson wanted the British MPs to agree to an early general election on 15 October, saying:

“In my view and the view of this govermment there must now be an election on Tuesday October 15 and I invite [Jeremy Corbyn] to respond to decide which of us goes as prime minister to that crucial council on Thursday October 17.”

The prime minister justified his decision for an early general election on 15 October, because according to him it is “completely impossible for the government to function if the House of Commons refuses to pass anything the government proposes”.

“In my view and the view of this government there must now be an election on Tuesday October 15 and I invite [Jeremy Corbyn] to respond to decide which of us goes as prime minister to that crucial council on Thursday October 17.”

https://www.ft.com/content/9bf49fcf-dfaa-3450-8d8b-bcab822b9813

Boris Johnson’s plan failed because the opposition realised that without a British Parliament, Boris Johnson would take the UK out of the EU on 31 October without having to secure the mandatory consent from the dissolved British Parliament.

Jeremy Corbyn exposes Boris Johnson’s conniving plan

Mr Johnson’s conniving plan was exposed by Jeremy Corbyn who claimed that:

“The offer of an election today is a bit like the offer of an apple to Snow White by the wicked queen. What he’s offering is not an apple of even an election but the poison of a no-deal. So Mr Speaker I repeat what I said last night. Let this bill pass and gain royal assent. Then we will back an election so we do not crash out with a no-deal exit from the EU.”

https://www.ft.com/content/9bf49fcf-dfaa-3450-8d8b-bcab822b9813

Boris Johnson decided to have an early general election, because he had a cunning plan – to deliver Brexit by dissolving the British parliament, and without elected MPs, the prime minister free to take the UK out of the EU, with or without a deal!

To achieve his cunning Brexit plan, Boris Johnson needed two-thirds of all MPs to vote in favour of his motion.

However, 298 MPs voted for the motion and 56 against, which was 136 short of the number needed to dissolve the British Parliament!

Therefore, Boris Johnson’s cunning plan to deliver a no-deal Brexit by dissolving the British parliament has failed!

President Nicholas Sarkozy our message is clear, countries that remain tax havens will be shunned by the international community which led to the EU referendum

Ever since he announced his U-turn on the EU referendum in 2013, David Cameron spent his time exclusively in the company of executive officials of the British pro-Brexit press, which according to James O’Brien, are owned by wealthy tax-avoiding billionaires who felt threatened by the new EU Directive intended to bring an end to their tax-avoiding practices.


According to Press Gazette throughout 2013, 2014 and 2015, Mr Cameron and George Osborne intensified their discussions with the pro-Brexit press.

“Of the 23 meetings between October 2014 and September 2015, eight were with News Corporation executives, five with the BBC or BBC Trust and four with Telegraph Media Group.”

As someone who campaigned to remain in the EU, one might have expected that Mr Cameron would coordinate his campaign and meet with the pro-EU press, such as the Independent, Guardian, Financial Times, etc.

Instead, Mr Cameron spent most of his time in the company of the executive officials of the pro-Brexit press, as follows:

News Coorp., which controls The Times, The Sunday Times and The Sun

  1. February 2015, Mr Cameron met with Robert Thomson, News Corporation chief executive, general discussion
  2. July 2015 – Mr Cameron met with Robert Thomson, general discussion

Telegraph Media Group, which controls The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph

  1. February 2013 –  Mr Cameron met with Murdoch MacLennan, Guy Black (with John Witherow and Lionel Barber), to discuss Leveson Report
  2. April 2013 –  Mr Cameron met with Aidan Barclay, general discussion
  3. September 2013 –  Mr Cameron met with Murdoch MacLennan (with Tony Gallagher and Ian MacGregor), general discussion
  4. November 2013 –  Mr Cameron met with Sir David Barclay, Telegraph owner, dinner
  5. May 2014 –  Mr Cameron met with Aidan Barclay, general discussion
  6. October 2014 – Mr Cameron met with Aidan Barclay (with Fizzy Barclay), dinner
  7. January 2015 –  Mr Cameron met with Aidan Barclay, general discussion

Express newspapers, which controls the Daily Star and Daily Express

  1. October 2013 –  Mr Cameron met with Richard Desmond, general discussion
  2. January 2015 –  Mr Cameron met with Richard Desmond, general discussion

Daily Mail

  1. October 2014 –  Mr Cameron met with Lord Rothermere (with Paul Dacre), chairman and owner of Daily Mail and General Trust, dinner

The tax avoidance scam behind Brexit is also emphasized by James O’Brian:

“Then we come back to Britain where he have voted to undertake Brexit in large part at the behest of non-domiciled billionaires like Lord Ashcroft and the two brothers who own the Telegraph, who have their own Channel Island. They also own the Ritz.”

https://www.lbc.co.uk/radio/presenters/james-obrien/hear-tax-avoidance-avoiders-papers/

David Cameron is a classic Jekyll & Hyde example, publicly campaigning to remain in the EU and secretly spending most of his time with people who campaigned to leave the EU.

On March 25th of 2015, Members of European Parliament representing Mr Cameron’s party, UKIP and DUP voted against EU’s plans to crack down on corporate tax-dodging, by making companies report where they make their profits and pay taxes.

“From Britain, Conservative, UKIP, and DUP MEPs voted against the report, though many did not show up or not vote.”

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/these-are-the-british-meps-who-voted-against-plans-to-crack-down-on-corporate-tax-evasion-a6982271.html

Even Mr Farage’s UKIP, the party who rambled on as being the only UK party to speak out for Britain’s little people, in the European Parliament, instead of the people they pledged to represent, they voted to protect the vested interests of the wealthy elite, who refuse to pay their tax contributions.

Apparently, Mr Farage also tried to avoid paying his taxes through an offshore trust fund.

“The 49-year-old paid a tax adviser to create the Farage Family Educational Trust 1654 in the tax haven – which he intended to channel funds through.”

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/ukip-leader-nigel-farage-admits-1972988

Reflecting on Supreme Court’s decision that the British Parliament must decide whether or not to trigger Article 50, Mr Farage revealed the crucial aspect of his Brexit campaign, stating:

“Well, we would be half-Brexiting is my guess – is that legally we may get out of some aspects of EU membership, but if we stay in the single market, we finish up with all our businesses being regulated somewhere else and indeed a court in Luxembourg that can overrule our own Supreme Court and if that happens it will a supreme act of betrayal.”

The European Court of Justice in Luxembourg is responsible for ensuring that EU directives are interpreted and applied in the same way in every member state, including EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive.

Here is a sneak preview of the opening chapter of Nolan Jazimreg’s “The Inconvenient Truth”:

Will Boris Johnson deliver Brexit on 31 October to avoid the transposition of the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into British law?

Will Boris Johnson deliver Brexit on 31 October to avoid the transposition of the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into British law?

Will Boris Johnson deliver Brexit on 31 October to avoid the transposition of the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into British law?

Boris Johnson admits that due the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive and European Court of Justice he can't protec tax dodging practices in the UK

Boris Johnson is keen to break the British law and deliver Brexit on 31 October, because if the UK doesn’t leave the EU before December, then the British government has to adopt new regulating laws to complete the full transposition of the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive!


Why is Boris rushing the UK out of the EU on 31 October?

Boris Johnson claimed that he would rather ‘die in a ditch’ than request an article 50 extension before 31 October! 

In fact, as the this article explains, Boris Johnson faces a tough Brexit dilemma:

  • Die in a ditch without delivering Brexit on 31 October; or
  • Die in prison for delivering Brexit on 31 October,

Johnson hoped to have an early general election, but after a majority of MPs declined to support his motion, a No. 10 spokesman attacked Jeremy Corbyn, saying:

“Jeremy Corbyn has voted to wreck the negotiations, to delay Brexit until 2020 at least, to hand over billions if Brussels demands it, and to stop the public having a vote until after Brexit is delayed again. Corbyn does not trust the people. He wants to cancel the referendum result and stop the people having a say. The Prime Minister trusts the people and thinks they should decide who goes to Brussels on 17 October to negotiate – and he will get us out on 31 October with or without a deal.”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7434881/Emily-Thornberry-confirms-Labour-block-early-general-election-Monday.html

Whilst the No. 10 spokesman raises the issue of handing “over billions if Brussels demands it”, he failed to mention the tiny detail that if the UK doesn’t leave before the 1 January 2020, then the British government has to transpose the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into the British law, thus enabling the British government to generate an additional £20 billions a year from tax-dodgers!

If Brexit isn’t delivered before 2020, then the UK has to transpose the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into British law!

On 29 May 2017, the European Council adopted the amended anti-tax avoidance directive, the amended anti-tax avoidance directive, introducing the rules to tackle hybrid mismatches with the tax systems of countries outside the EU, which obliges its member states to implement the directive into their national law by 1 January 2020.

https://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/policies/anti-tax-avoidance-package/

This is also confirmed by Her Majesty’s Treasury, which confirmed that by 01 January 2020, the British government has to transpose the EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance measures into British law.

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/548794/response/1319005/attach/html/3/Scan.pdf.html

Therefore, unless Boris Johnson manages to deliver Brexit well before 01 January 2020, the Brexiteers’ tax avoidance con will be dead, because once the EU measures are enacted, it takes a courageous politician to propose or vote in favour of their removal!

The EU is already aware of the British drive to protect the tax-dodging practices from the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive!

German Greens MEP Sven Giegold said: 

“Brexit must become an exit from British tax dumping. The rejection of the Brexit agreement by the British House of Commons has made the modalities of the Brexit even more incalculable. However, it is clear that any future agreement between Britain and the EU must put an end to tax havens in the UK’s overseas territories. The practice of zero tax on company profits in essentially all British overseas territories must no longer be exploited for international tax dodging.”

https://www.theparliamentmagazine.eu/articles/news/uk-tax-reform-must-be-condition-eu-post-brexit-trade-accord-say-meps

Dutch deputy prime minister, Lodewijk Asscher who happens to be Dutch Labour (PvdA) party leader, also issued a stark warning to the British government:

“If you and I pay taxes, so should the large enterprises. Let’s fight the race to the bottom for profits taxation together which threatens to come into existence if it is up to the Conservative UK government. This will affect all Europeans, as it deteriorates our support for our social security system and leaves ordinary people to bear the costs. This is why I propose to come to a new trade agreement with Great Britain, but only if we can agree firmly upon tackling tax avoidance and stopping the fiscal race to the bottom.”

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jan/14/netherlands-will-block-eu-deal-with-uk-without-tax-avoidance-measures

Therefore, if Boris Johnson fails to deliver Brexit before 2020, the British tax-dodging elite, including the Russians who supported the Leave campaign could no longer avoid paying their taxes !

BBC Brexit narrative is wrong that the EU Tax Avoidance Directive will not have huge implications on wealthy British tax-dodgers is wrong because according Nigel Farage if we remained in the EU, tax-avoiding offences would be ruled by the European Court of Justice (ECJ), instead of British courts.

For someone who complained about the overcrowded hospitals and schools throughout his Brexit campaign, portraying himself to be on the side of “the little people”, it does seem strange that Nigel Farage and his UKIP MEPs happen to have continuously protected the vested interest of the tax-avoiding companies rather than the British hard-working people, whom he claimed to represent.


WHY THE NIGEL FARAGE’S SUDDEN RELUCTANCE TO SUBJECT BRITISH BUSINESSES TO ECJ’S RULINGS?

After the Supreme Court ruled that it’s up to the Parliament and not the government to trigger Article 50, Mr Farage revealed the pivotal aspect of his Brexit campaign:
“Well, we would be half-Brexiting is my guess – is that legally we may get out of some aspects of EU membership, but if we stay in the single market, we finish up with all our businesses being regulated somewhere else and indeed a court in Luxembourg that can overrule our own Supreme Court and if that happens it will a supreme act of betrayal.”

It seems that Mr Farage’s primary Brexit aim is the protection of British businesses from Luxembourg’s European Court of Justice (ECJ) and not immigration or the wellbeing of the struggling British working class!

When the Republic of Ireland decided to offer preferential tax rates to Apple, in August 2016, ECJ ruled that it amounted to illegal state aid as it allowed Apple to pay substantially less tax on profits recorded in Ireland than other companies.

Thanks to ECJ, which forced the Irish government to recover €13.1 plus interest of €1.2 billion, the Irish people will now enjoy improved infrastructure, public healthcare and education!

The Irish case illustrates how the ECJ is determined to ensure equality and that no company or individual enjoys preferential tax treatments, including tax-dodgers!

As of next year, the EU member states will implement its new Anti Tax Avoidance Directive and bring an end to the tax-avoiding practices by the EU citizens or businesses.

ECJ is responsible for making sure that all EU directives and regulations are implemented within its member states!

As of next year, the EU member states will implement its new Anti Tax Avoidance Directive and bring an end to the tax-avoiding practices by the EU citizens or businesses.

ECJ is responsible for making sure that all EU directives and regulations are implemented within its member states!

If the UK were to remain in the EU, in a similar way to the Apple case in Ireland, ECJ would order the British government to collect taxes from corporations, such as Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, which has channelled profits through subsidiaries in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda.

However, Mr Farage seems to disagree with EU’s and ECJ’s determination to enforce equality by ending the preferential treatment of individuals or companies, including tax-dodging, through the European Commission’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive!

The European Parliament reconvened on 21 May 2013 to discuss the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive, ahead of the European Council meeting, which was due to take place the next day.

Mr Farage defended the British tax-dodging practices and accused the EU of creating barriers between the UK, and the British tax havens through their new Anti Tax Avoidance Directive:
“There’s a great degree of unity here this morning, a common enemy: rich people, successful companies evading tax, which of course is a problem, avoiding tax, which is not illegal, but it gives this whole chamber this morning a high moral tone and, as Mr Barrasso says, it’s all about the perception of fairness. Because there is the added bonus of course that it drives a wedge between the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, and the Caymans.”


NIGEL FARAGE, A KEEN DEFENDER OF BRITISH TAX-DODGING PRACTICES

In fact, this isn’t the only time Mr Farage opposed EU’s efforts to clamp down on tax-dodging practices!

On 13 April 2016, UKIP MEPs voted against EU plans to crack down on corporate tax dodging, by forcing companies to report where they make their profits and pay taxes.

Most individuals behind the Leave campaign have been implicated in tax-dodging practices and Mr Farage is no exception because according to the Mirror, Mr Farage avoided paying his taxes by setting up an offshore fund in the Isle of Man:

  • February 2003 Farage, his brother Andrew Farage and a third director set up commodity trading firm Farage Limited.
  • August 2003 A document filed at Companies House stated that Nigel Farage owned no shares in Farage Limited and the Farage Family Educational Trust 1654 owned 33 shares.
  • May 2004 Another document filed at Companies House stated that Nigel Farage owned 33 shares in Farage Limited and the Farage Family Educational Trust owned none.
  • October 2004 Farage was appointed company secretary of Farage Limited.
  • February 2006 Farage resigned as director of Farage Limited but remained as company secretary.
  • February 2011 Nigel Farage resigned as company secretary of Farage Limited.
  • March 2011 HM Revenue & Customs filed a petition at the High Court to wind up Farage Limited.
  • July 2011 Farage Limited went into a “voluntary arrangement” to pay off its debts by 2017.

Mr Farage complained about the overcrowded hospitals and schools throughout his Brexit campaign, portraying himself to be on the side of “the little man” and accused Remainers of being elitist, but in fact, it was Farage the one who consistently protected the vested interest of the wealthy tax-avoiding elite rather than the British hard-working people, whom he claimed to represent. 

In 2016, Nigel Farage Ukip’s has ruled out publishing his tax return in response to increased interest in the tax affairs high profile politicians.

When faced with questions from MEPs over offshore tax haven links, Farage’s Brexit Party chairman, Richard Tice claimed that he doesn’t know who’s behind offshore firms that own a large stake in his family business.

Therefore, our public services aren’t overstretched because of tax-paying EU immigrants, but because of tax-dodging Brexiteers, such as Nigel Farage and Richard Tice, who refuse to pay their due taxes in the UK!

With the new EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive becoming an EU law, it’s hardly surprising why tax-dodging Brexiteers opposed EU laws and ECJ, the EU court responsible for ensuring that EU laws, including the new anti-tax avoidance measures, are implemented among all its member states.

Will Boris Johnson deliver Brexit on 31 October to avoid the transposition of the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into British law?

Boris Johnson’s contempt for the European Court of Justice’s jurisdiction over tax-dodging practices in the UK

Boris Johnson’s contempt for the European Court of Justice’s jurisdiction over tax-dodging practices in the UK

Boris Johnson admits that due the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive and European Court of Justice he can't protect tax-dodging practices in the UK

Prominent Brexiteers like Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg have repeatedly proclaimed that the European Court of Justice (ECJ) threatens the sovereignty of the United Kingdom and British courts, but declined to inform British voters that ECJ also threatens the tax-dodging practices within EU member states, similar to the Apple case in Ireland.


ALL TAX-DODGING MEDIA TYCOONS USED THEIR NEWSPAPERS TO CONVINCE THE BRITISH PUBLIC TO VOTE LEAVE

Prominent pro-Brexit newspapers are owned by tax-dodging individuals who avoid paying tax in the UK, such as:

1. The Sun newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch who avoided paying his taxes by setting up his companies in the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands.

2. The Telegraph newspaper owned by David and Frederick Barclay who avoided paying their taxes by registering as residents of Sark island, located in the Channel Island tax haven.

3. The Daily Mail newspaper owned by Lord Rothermere who avoided paying his taxes by inheriting the Daily Mail through an offshore trust set up in the Channel Island tax haven and is registered as “non-dom”.

4. The Express newspaper previously owned by Richard Desmond who avoided paying his taxes by setting up a company in a Luxembourg tax haven.

Throughout their Leave campaign, Brexiteers convinced the British public that the European Court of Justice (ECJ) infringes the sovereignty of the United Kingdom, but failed to mention how.


THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE UK AND THE EU ANTI-TAX AVOIDANCE MEASURES

Prominent Brexiteers like Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg have repeatedly proclaimed that the European Court of Justice (ECJ) threatens the sovereignty of the United Kingdom and British courts!

Regrettably, as this article explains, before the EU referendum, they declined to inform British voters that ECJ threatens the tax-dodging practices within EU member states, such as the Apple case in Ireland.

The “Exit Taxation” rules set out in Article 5 of EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive are similar to the ones set out in the British law.

Nonetheless, you’ll discover there are two minor details that distinguish the UK “Exit Taxation” from the EU “Exit Taxation”, which terrified the British tax-dodging elite and it has to do with the difference between their territorial jurisdictions.

Technically, the British tax havens are still considered British, therefore if someone avoided paying their taxes by transferring their capital gains there, they aren’t obliged to pay the TCGA 1992’s exit charge, because their assets haven’t left the British territory.

The British overseas territories are part of Great Britain, but not part of the EU, therefore, if the UK remained in the EU, the EU exit tax would have been collected before they get transferred to the British offshore tax havens, which are not part of the EU!

THE BREXITEERS’ SUDDEN HATRED FOR THE EUROPEAN COURT OF JUSTICE

The other difference between the UK and the EU anti-tax avoidance measures is that the European Court of Justice (ECJ) is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the new EU directive, which is why prominent Brexiteers are desperate to keep it out of the UK!

https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2018/03/theresa-mays-our-future-partnership-speech-in-full/

According to the BBC:

“The EU court in Luxembourg interprets EU law to make sure it is applied in the same way in all EU countries and settles legal disputes between national governments and EU institutions. Member states are required to comply with the court’s rulings, and may be fined if they do not do so.”

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-eu-referendum-35630757

After all, it was ECJ that ordered Ireland to recover €13.1 billion in tax from Apple and ECJ, and thank to this institution, the Irish people will be enjoying improved infrastructure, public healthcare and education!

Starting from the year 2019, the ECJ will ensure that all EU member states implement its new Anti Tax Avoidance Directive and bring an end to the tax-avoiding practices by the EU citizens or businesses.

After the Supreme Court’s ruling that it’s up to the Parliament and not the government to trigger Article 50, Nigel Farage revealed the pivotal aspect of his Brexit campaign, which involves ECJ:

“Well, we would be half-Brexiting is my guess – is that legally we may get out of some aspects of EU membership, but if we stay in the single market, we finish up with all our businesses being regulated somewhere else and indeed a court in Luxembourg that can overrule our own Supreme Court and if that happens it will a supreme act of betrayal.”

In her Brexit speech, Prime Minister May confirmed that she is going to fulfil Mr Farage’s ambition of freeing Great Britain from the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg:

“The second hard fact is that even after we have left the jurisdiction of the ECJ, EU law and the decisions of the ECJ will continue to affect us… But, in the future, the EU treaties and hence EU law will no longer apply in the UK.”

https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2018/03/theresa-mays-our-future-partnership-speech-in-full/

Upon this, Boris Johnson victoriously claimed that:
“A huge intellectual effort went into creating this language by which we could somehow ensure that… our courts, our Supreme Court, our House of Commons, could overturn judgements of the European Court of Justice if we felt, if Britain felt, that they were in some way capricious or if they were going beyond the Treaty.”

Boris Johnson confirmed that due to the new EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive, Tory Brexiteers’ vision for the UK as a global tax haven can’t be delivered:
“We could do free ports, if the UK leaves the European Union as scheduled on 31 October. It would be a massive boost to this economy, but only once we come out. I will have about six of them, by the way. We should definitely be doing freeports and tax-free zones. They have delivered around the world. I think there are around 130 countries that have them. We don’t, because of our membership of the EU. And there are plainly areas that would benefit from them.”
