Suck it, Limey!


Universal jurisdiction snags London's mayor: He sold his London house and guess what? The IRS taxed his capital gains.

Why, you ask? Because he holds two passports, US and British.

I have been told but do not know independently, that the U.S. is the only country to make such outrageous claims. Given that Spain and any number of countries, not to mention various Brussels institutions, regularly claim the right to prosecute such as Pinochet and He Whose Name Must Not Be Spoken, I would expect more countries to get in on the action. (Perhaps the paperwork is too oppressive for them.)
