Just make people angry, forget about the facts

There's a fascinating thread here on Liberal Conspiracy where various well informed commenters take a part a lot of the current overwrought stuff about corporate tax evasion specifiically the hoohah the Guardian stroked up about Barclays last week. Suffice to say the situation re Barclays is nothing like as clearcut as the Guardian and the UKUncut lot made out. Also some of the accounting paractices the Guardian vilified have been used by GMG as well - oh what a surprise.

All very interesting, also it shows how useful blogs can be when informed people get involved.

PS - on Pickled Politics here Rumbold also notes that the Barclays claims have been debunked.
