Oliver Bullough - Butler to the World, published 10 March 2022
This highly readable book details the history, extent and complexity of this system in Britain and its territories – how since 1956 our financial and legal systems have been designed to cultivate high wealth individuals and allow them to secrete their wealth using a myriad of devices under the full protection of the law.

A butler is not required to possess integrity, simply exhibit loyalty to his paymaster.
