British Prime Minister David Cameron is having to answer some heavy questions about his tax dealings after it emerged his father may be implicated in the mammoth "Panama Papers" leak, but your favourite political drama just threw some serious shade at the whole saga.
Cameron has admitted he once owned a share of his father Ian's offshore trust in Panama, and will likely have to deal with the political fallout of his link to the massive leak of tax data. It's all very dense and technical unless you're a tax expert or accountant, but basically it's all about allegations of companies and the mega-rich limiting their tax liabilities by basing their accounts in different countries.
The Twitter account for Netflix drama 'House of Cards' has now weighed in, and it's pretty shady. The account dug up an old tweet from Cameron from 2015, where he talked up the importance of paying your taxes.
I have a simple view that if you have done the right thing - worked, saved and paid your taxes - you should be rewarded, not punished.— David Cameron (@David_Cameron) May 2, 2015
Did you think that old gem was going to avoid the attention of Frank Underwood? No way.
The road to power is paved with hypocrisy and casualties. https://t.co/ZBpgBT1eL8— House of Cards (@HouseofCards) April 7, 2016
It's not the first time the account has weighed in on the political rumblings of the day. Remember this from March, when Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull laid his cards on the table for a possible double dissolution election?
.@TurnbullMalcolm I admire your methodology, Prime Minister. If you don't like how the table is set, turn over the table.— House of Cards (@HouseofCards) March 21, 2016
