Yeah! Stick it to The Man!

Evening Standard: Squatters take over Colonel Gaddafi's son's £11m London mansion

A group calling themselves Topple The Tyrants said they took over the house because they "didn't trust the British government to properly seize Gaddafi's corrupt assets".
The squatters unfurled a banner bearing a picture of Colonel Gaddafi and the slogan "Out Of Libya Out Of London" from the top of the house.
Four of them were spotted walking around on the roof as police took photographs from below.

The offshore system was devised around secrecy and anonymity, and funds can be shifted so quickly that it's all but impossible to freeze and seize kleptocrats' loot.

Maybe the 'Topple the Tyrants' campaigners will move on the the bankers empty homes, of which I am sure there will be many.

The guys on the roof might be the SAS with orders to seize Gadaffi' s home - again. The pilot needs to brush up on his navigation skills.

As will says, how long before attention is drawn to the assets of bankers, politicians - btlers.

The main perpetrators of the mess we're in.

I'd love to see some lists printed of the properties owned by the various bankers and politicians involved in the financial mess.

That should give something for the investigative journalists to get their teeth stuck into - if they can spare any time away from Kordan and X Factor.

You don't bite the hand that feeds and strokes you. Why do you think it has been so long.

Local councils have lists of empty houses (since they're claiming council tax discounts or exemptions). All we need now is for someone to Wikileak those lists, and we'd have a squatters' paradise.

Isn't it crazy that we know who owns which cars, yet we, maybe even the authorities don't know who owns which (or more importantly how many) houses.
Yet there are 2 or 3 times as many cars as houses and the vehicles move and change hands more frequently.

Anyone spot a conspiracy.

str2007,

Land Registry has records of all property transactions since 2000. You're right though, it is a bit odd.

~ str, I sense a slow change in your demeanor. Good lad. Take some time out and visit mooji.org It's the second stage of waking up.

You should take to it well. "Life is hard because you live it hard." ~ Mooji.

Most multi-million houses are owned by a shell company which may be owned by a trust. When they sell the house, they actually sell the shares and the land registry sees nothing and there's no stamp duty.
