Nobody cares really.

Nobody of any importance or power is going to face consequences.

Consequences are for the poors.

You're absolutely right: I care. Plenty of us care. But we don't have any power - It's been clear for decades, and the car-bombing of the Panama Papers journalist made an explicit reminder that we aren't human beings in the eyes of the 1%, we're fuel of a machine that carries them ever forward, ever upward. The moment we get uppity they'll slay us without compunction, and nothing will change.

All I can do about this is post a fucking article for everyone to laugh at, be horrified by, or dismiss. I have no voice but I must scream.

Drag the royal family's name through the mud at least and I'm a happy guy. I heard the Queen is crying.
