Sensational news: Government to prosecute tax evaders


By Anthony Sheridan

Sensational news from acting Enterprise Minister Richard Bruton in response to the Panama Papers scandal.

Cheats using offshore bank accounts to evade paying tax here will be vigorously prosecuted.

No mercy shown to those found to be evading paying tax here.

Obviously if there are offences of Irish law discovered in this, you can be absolutely sure they will be vigorously prosecuted.

So there you have it folks, straight from the horse’s mouth.  Tax evaders are to face the full rigours of the law.

It’s an historic first for our tax haven/banana republic.

Ah no, I’m only joking. Bruton is a liar just like the rest of them. Nobody will be prosecuted…I mean, the very idea.
