Please recall that the "offshore tax havens" frequented so regularly by US corporate scum and wealthy individuals, are all part of the British Empire. Bermuda, Bahamas, Cayman all owe their allegiance to Queen Elizabeth (The Bahamas and Cayman Islands still have the Union Jack on their flags). Among the top two locations for people looking to dodge the inheritance tax are Ireland and Belize, both former members of the British Imperium. Nice to know President Bush picks such great, grand friends for America. Why, this alliance with Britain is really great for, what did I just call them, war-mongering, theocratic, oil-plutocratic, police-state corporatists.
