Dear Taxcasters, here is the summary of the May 2015 Taxcast content.  
Please feel free to share, repost, embed - all details below. I've  
even done a ready-made tweet:

#TaxJustice podcast: @UmarCheema1 on making tax returns of Pakistan  
politicians public. Listen up PM @David_Cameron!  

In the Tax Justice Network's May 2015 Podcast:

Do our politicians believe in the societies they serve or not? The  
Taxcast looks at making the tax returns of our elected representatives  
public and the inspirational achievement of journalist Umar Cheema of   
the Centre for Investigative Reporting in making Pakistan only the  
fourth country in the world to publish the tax returns of its  
Parliamentarians. Also: how the British general election demonstrates  
political capture by finance interests; libertarian paradise – the  
world's newest tax haven; and is Singapore trying to shut down  
reporting on its tax haven status?

Featuring: John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network, @UmarCheema1  
of  the Centre for Investigative Reporting in Pakistan. www.cirp.pk  
Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.

“A senior Finance Ministry official told me that when the government  
of Pakistan decided to make tax data public, they got to hear from the  
UK authorities that now we will come under pressure to do the same in  
the UK. I don't know when they do but one should hope for the best and  
the Tax Justice Network must use the example of Pakistan for  
pressuring the authorities in London.”

~ Umar Cheema, Centre for Investigative Reporting in Pakistan
