Offshore accounts and dodgy friends

Owl wishes it to be known that – unlike Lord Ashcroft, the Queen and the man who owns Everton – it has never had an offshore bank account nor has it had questionable relationships with Russian oligarchs or other dodgy people.

Could our councillors perhaps be made to confirm in their declarations of interest that they have no iffy external sources of income or very dodgy friends in whom MI5, HMRC or the police might be interested?
