RTBF and banks

Excellent investigative journalism on the Belgian television channel RTBF today. Which I had the pleasure of watching in globalised fashion on German mainstream news this evening.

RTBF sent a journalist into a leading bank, armed with a hidden camera and apparently 500,000 Euros to invest. She asks the bank advisor how she can best invest it, and he provides a good range of advice on how to avoid paying taxes. This from a bank which has just received millions in financial support from the state. From, that is, taxpayers.

Ah, the irony of it all.
