I am surprised that Emma is so quiet, after her name appeared in the Panama papers, maybe she thinks people are not able to think for itself, they do not know what the Panama Papers or They continue trust her 100% after this

This is a powerful book covering issues of identity and effects on family. I had seen it before but only read it when Emma suggested selected it. It is very readable book which I had to admit I was not sure it would be.

Emma is not quite she has nothing to say on the matter I image has it has been covered. I read the data on the site itself and nothing there suggests anything other than she has claimed.

The laws in the UK could be changed to make information that can be used by stalkers harder to come by and maybe women in Emma's position and in general would not have to go to these lengths.

I do not know your gender but most women I have asked; unwanted attention is a problem o most of them let alone a Woman in Emma's position.

She has broken no law nor betrayed any principles.

She has broken no law nor betrayed any principles. This We do not know to 100%, besides, It appeared to information that has said emma bought her apartment in London with money from this tax haven (Panama) and her representative has not said nothing about it, Why? Because they have no excuse for this, before the excuse was for "preserve her privacy" and now? What is the excuse? Ah! nothing, Because Emma has illegal money in a tax haven and this is a crime

Have you been to the site itself. There is one shell company and there is no evidence she made any fiscal gain at all. Shell companies like this are not illegal and the set-up Emma used is not the best for avoiding tax was that the goal. Have a look at some of the others on the site to compare.

We only know what the PP entries say and Emma's peoples comments. But given the person she is, given she has been watched her whole life do you really think she would do anything like this as a deliberate poly.

- must beg Edens indulgence for discussing this here do you have another place we can chat Annon.

Ross, I have seen the data too, and what you said it's totally right, I saw it a couple of days ago, and all you can find there does nothing but confirm her PR statement, nothing in the data make me think that she was evading taxes, it just says that she bought a house and used an intermediary, a shell company, a completely legal activity, used for privacy and investments, both totally legal too and definetely not unethical.

I really love seeing Emma so relaxed but sometimes I think it would be great if she talk about this, just to know what she thinks about it.

Thanks for the support however nice to know someone else was interested in the facts

But I think Eden is right Emma (and her supporters) should leave it alone now. It is a no win situation and result of a slow press day and lazy journalism. It occurs that trying to help we are just keeping the story going.

It is difficult to let go of the casual injustice of the whole thing but perhaps it is time.

By the way I would read "The Argonuts" support Emma with our actions.

Do I have to tattoo "stop being rude" on people's forehead for them to remember?

First Anon: We already looked at the available information and made intelligent, informed opinions about it. There was a whole news post on this blog about it. Just because we aren't still constantly reacting to it doesn't mean we don't know.

Long story short, assuming Emma broke the law or did something unethical is incorrect. The ONLY rational point of view is that there is currently ZERO evidence of wrongdoing. If you want to delve into gossip and hearsay, that's your business. But don't portray those of us that aren't irrationally attacking Emma as being ignorant, unable to think for ourselves, and trusting whatever Emma says as god's word. None of that is true, you're simply projecting the faults in your own argument. Rationality, evidence, and facts are on our side, not yours. Good day.

What do you think the trailer of Beauty and Beast has been postponed by linking of Emma in Panama Papers?

Offshore investments give loopholes in taxation; there are no buts around that. It is not illegal but questionable for anyone with millions. That is the modern world, and the celebrities are no saints, but one does question these things and I think that is okay.

Sorry i need say this, about the Panama Papers, what of it has been to "buy a house" seem a lousy excuse, but She must assume the mistake, because ethics must have it for everything, especially if She preach by example. Her image and credibility itself can be damaged. We'll see how it ends.

whether she bought a house or avoided taxes I don't think it's a big deal, and if it's illegal I think the government would know.
I just don't understand why you guys can't MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESSES :)?!

It comes to show, that if you talk too much, you stuff your foot in your mouth. Offshore investing and loopholes with millions- that happens- no not illegal and you can show receipts- but still loopholes for the rich.
