The #PanamaPapers Released on April 3rd has implicated a number of world leaders, and has led to the resignation of Iceland’s Prime minister Sigmundur GunnlaugssonClick here if you missed it

British Prime Minister, David Cameron has also been fingered in the leak. Cameron whose late father Ian’s offshore fund named Blairmore Holdings  was listed in the documents, admitted that he had owned shares in the trust last Thursday. He also said that he sold the shares for around 30,000 pounds in 2010 before he won the election and the profit he made was subject to ordinary U.K tax rules.

The Prime Minister is being attacked for benefiting financially from a company seemingly created to avoid British taxes.

DailyMail reports that thousands of protesters have marched on Downing Street calling for the resignation of the British Prime Minister.

It also said that the protesters drew inspiration from the protests in Iceland that led to the resignation of its Prime Minister earlier this week.

    Don’t mind those lazy Labour Party people. Anything a rich person does they’ll start crying and say they want to tax him. Meanwhile they think it’s okay to pull someone down because his dad left him an inheritance . Cameron brought that money into England THEN made profit AND paid tax on it. Don’t mind these British olodos. I’m here and they don’t know anything, can’t even read, don’t go to school after 16. Then when people do, they want them to be heavily taxed cause they’re making too much. They think everyone should be making the same no matter what
