Something to remember about the Citi-Hands trial

It's worth remembering that Guy Hands insisted on the trial taking place in New York rather than the more appropriate London, because if he came to London it would wreck his tax dodging scheme. (I know that technically he is avoiding rather than dodging tax - he's behaving legally, if unethically, but let's not pretend that he's just really clever rather than a greedy man who wants to avoid paying his share to the nation that raised him.)
