The British Prime Minister David Cameron has announced new measures to make it harder for people to hide the proceeds of corruption in offshore accounts. Most British overseas territories for the tax havens will now share information with the UK authorities. The prime minister has been under pressure since it emerged that he used to hold shares in an offshore trust. Rob Watson reports. “After days of damaging headlines and much insinuation and speculation on social media, David Cameron mounted a typically robust defense of his personal tax affairs and the record of his government. He had done nothing wrong, his government would be improving both the transparency and scrutiny of financial masses of the UK's overseas territories. Despite allegations of stirring class war, the leader of opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn stuck to his line that the Panama papers were further evidence there was one rule for the rich and another for the rest.“

Pregnant women were vulnerable to contracting the disease for longer than previously thought. “We absolutely need to be ready, everything we look at with this virus seems to be a bit scarier than we initially thought, and so well we absolutely hope we don't see widespread local transmit in the continental US, we need the states to be ready for that, we can't assume we are not going to have a big problem, we know with other viruses which had bigger problems than we expected, so we’re taking this very seriously.“

An opposition politician Vandelay Marcris said the current government was paralyzed and the impeachment was the only way forward. “We hope the impeachment is important to Brazilian society and that we can have change, and that with this change we can really begin to look to the future and to the light of the end of tunnel. Because this presidency, if it remains in power, it won't be in condition the govern(ing), that's the tragedy the administration we seen in our country today.“
