Most corrupt country on planet is Britain, says Mafia expert
Fearless journalist Roberto Saviano, who has dedicated his career to exposing the Italian mafia, has claimed that it is Britain that is the most corrupt country on Earth.
Saviano, who faces daily threats to his life, exposed the murderous world and criminal networks of the Italian mafia.
The author of bestsellers Gomorra (now also a gritty TV drama and film) and ZeroZeroZero made a rare appearance at the Hay Literary Festival, with a number of bodyguards.
He told the audience that financial institutions allow criminal capitalism to thrive through offshore holdings. Saviano believes voting to leave the EU, would mean Britain would be become even more embroiled in organsied crime and laundering dirty money.
He said: “If I asked you what is the most corrupt place on Earth you might tell me well it’s Afghanistan, maybe Greece, Nigeria, the South of Italy and I will tell you it’s the UK.
“It’s not the bureaucracy, it’s not the police, it’s not the politics but what is corrupt is the financial capital. 90 per cent of the owners of capital in London have their headquarters offshore.
The stupid thing we know the reason for this it all starts with the Public School system since you CANNOT WORK IN THE CITY UNLESS YOUR EX PUBLIC SCHOOL
