Panama Papers Put UK’s Cameron On The Spot

(Audio available after show airs.)

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron was forced to release information about his tax returns of the last six years earlier this week. Cameron released the information after the Panama Leaks revealed his father was the director of an offshore account. 

Cameron has been a vocal critic of people who put money in offshore accounts to avoid paying taxes. The ensuing scandal has earned him the nickname “Dodgy Dave.” 

We’ll talk about the political fallout with Alex Massie, Scotland editor of The Spectator. His recent article on the scandal is “Dodgy Dave’s Offshore Chickens Come Home to Roost. “ It appears in Foreign Policy.
