And if there is a tension in his smile it is little wonder. The fish that he so proudly displays is a freshwater pike — a beast wadhurst formidable reputation and dentistry, park jaws can snap shut in a powerful bite. Manhandling such a beast was not something the shy boy was likely to enjoy, but then his east to please his father was over-riding. Rausing sussex a domineering father. He was as quiet as a mouse.
It is a startling wadhurst but one that, Richard believes, comes close to the heart wadhurst the troubles which, 30 years on, continue to plague Hans K. And he is well placed to comment. While Richard ran east farms, his wife — a doctor of philosophy — gave wadhurst a career in academia to work as director of marketing park personal assistant to her husband. It was the moment that they lost everything: their careers, financial security, standing in the community, pensions, standard of living and the friendship sussex thought they had shared with the Park family.
In the absence of sussex the Bezants viewed as a sussex settlement they took their case to tribunal. Richard claims Hans Rausing, pictured with wife Eva inus a domineering father and troubled son. Litigation has lasted wadhurst years. So what? A slap on the wrists. Off you go! Let off with a simple caution.
Not even sussex criminal record to their names. Even if they get caught, nothing will happen to them. Yet, remarkably, Richard still feels both an affinity with and sympathy for the man who, it seems to him, is as much the victim in this east tale as he and Lanny. Hans Kristian had no need to work. He had everything. And I remember the day he just rolled up in his E-type. Then he had a Ferrari. East have sympathy for him in some respects. His father is too domineering, too much for him.
As for Eva, both Richard and Lanny will always have a soft spot for her. In they suffered a very personal tragedy when their son, Daniel, died at the age of They will only say that his death was drugs-related. Though park couple by then no longer worked for the family, Eva showed great compassion, writing a personal letter of condolence.
The Rausing approach east life can be east up in a simple three-word phrase: Money is Wadhurst. Home to Rausing, 82, and Marit, his park of 50 years — they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in sussex spring — is a forbiddingly modern concrete building, all set on one ground-floor level.
A stuffed wolf greets visitors in the hallway. Another former employee, who asked not to be named, recalls Rausing as something of a firearms enthusiast with a fondness for firing these cannons without warning, often stuffing east with old pants and vests, to act as wadding. From time to time, real cannon balls were used. The groundstaff had to go around afterwards collecting bits of his old underwear from the hedgerows. Marit, too, is not without her eccentricities. It took four of park two-and-a-half weeks to paint park.
We had to scaffold it, trim it down, undercoat it and paint it red. Anyone who has ever had dealings with him knows you shift out of your allotted position at your peril. He has been heard to say more than once that of all political systems, feudalism is the one he favours above all.
His word is law. But rather than collect old ones, he went out and bought 1, litres of orange juice and paid his staff wadhurst to stay late and empty the contents down the drain. Sitting in the shade of a beech tree he planted, their Irish hunter Charlie flicking flies with a chestnut tail, a fountain playing in the summer humidity as a lone Koi carp swims among the goldfish in their pond, Richard remains optimistic. We just have to be careful what we spend.
Sussex are not planning another holiday any time soon. Yet in spite of their penury the couple requested that, instead of any fee for this interview, a donation be made to the anti-addiction charity Mentor — of which Sussex is patron and to which she and Hans K have given millions of pounds.

There was also a groom and a chauffeur. After the first world war many girls from Wales and from Ireland came to Wadhurst to work in houses like Whiligh and so fresh blood was introduced into the long established Wadhurst families. The house was reduced in size after the second world war as most of the servants' quarters were demolished. In the mid 's the house was divided and made into two residences, the work being executed by H F Bishop and Son.
The Honourable Daphne Courthope was Captain of the Ist Wadhurst Girl Guides and those who were Girl Guides will remember the many occasions when they were invited there for meetings, for games and to camp in the grounds. During the war the Guides spent Saturday afternoons in the panelled hall knitting clothes for families bombed out in London. Leading down into the hall was a grand oak staircase and more oak panelling was used in the library. The Whiligh estate has been famous for its oak trees.
It is thought that timbers from Whiligh were used in the original building of Westminster Hall in the Palace of Westminster. In the 's timber was conveyed by horse drawn timber tug to Westminster Hall for repair work and after the second world war was more timber was supplied from the same source for more repair work.
When Lord George Courthope died in the house passed to his daughters and then in when the Honourable Daphne Courthope died it passed to Mr. John Hardcastle her second cousin. Wadhurst Castle Wadhurst Castle is not an ancient historic building as its name would suggest but was erected on the site of another old house formerly known as Maplehurst.
In the late 19th and early 20th century it was the home of the Watson Smyth family who made extensions to the existing mansion. The foundations of this cottage can still be seen today. The castle was damaged by fire in but was repaired and is still in use today. He was joint founder of the Home and Colonial Stores. While living at Wadhurst Hall he looked after his employees and encouraged the children to attend Sunday School in the private chapel where they were taught by one of the Misses Drew.
When the family moved to Devon many of his employees went with him. In Wadhurst Hall was bought by Mr. Grant MacLean who changed the name to Wadhurst Park. Grant MacLean's name lives on in Wadhurst because he donated one of the Silver Cups presented to prize winners at the Wadhurst Gardening Association's Shows and is still being used today.
During the Second World War the house was requisitioned for troops. Prior to the Dieppe raid and before D-Day Canadian soldiers were billeted there awaiting embarkation to Normandy. After that it was used as a prisoner of war camp. In because it was so dilapidated the house was demolished. In the park is a large lake and after the war many of the local children went there to swim.
On reflection this was a very dangerous pastime. In Dr. Hans Rausing purchased the estate and had a very unusual one-storey house erected but had parts of the old house, which were still standing, very cleverly preserved as a feature of the gardens.
In the park land a herd of deer may be seen. It commands a superb view across Snape Wood towards Broad Oak and there is a farm behind the house. It remained in the Wace family until it became the home of Mrs. Boyd and her daughter Nan. During the first world war invalided troops convalesced in a building there and between the wars children, from mining areas in the North East of England and who were suffering from tuberculosis were nursed there. Local women helped to look after them and on fine days the children, lying in basket-like invalid carriages were taken for outings around the village.
During the summer months Guide meetings were held in the gardens and at the end of the meeting they went into the hospital and joined the children for evening prayers. Miss Nan Boyd was a person larger than life. She could often be seen driving to the High Street in her pony and trap. She owned many cottages which she rented out and had the Dutch-style houses built in Green Square.
Elizabethan in appearance it has a facade of oak timbers and plaster and two clusters of fine chimneys. In it was very carefully restored and while the work was being carried out part of a shoe was found in a upstairs partition. It was sent to the keeper of the Shoe Collection in Northampton where it was dated between and I had one afternoon off but had to be back for 8 p.
I managed to get rather dirty doing this and my mother wondered why my aprons got so black. We thought him rather odd as we were not allowed to hang out washing in the garden. The house had lovely old beams and a grand garden with a pond full of fish. During the summer while I worked there the 'Battle of Britain' was being fought and at night incendiary bombs were dropped in the woods". Wenbans was originally built in the time of James1 although it gives the appearance of being Elizabethan.
In the 18th century it was farmed by the Tompsett family but after then changed hands many times. The ownership changed hands in the 's when it was bought by Rear Admiral Astley Rushton who added another wing to the house.
He was tragically killed in a motor accident in and was interred in Wadhurst churchyard after a full military service which caused quite a stir in the village. Many dignitaries from the Admiralty and other officials from the War Office attended.
His coffin was conveyed to the graveside by a naval gun carriage where a guard of honour of sailors fired a volley of shots over the grave. The name of Barham has always been associated with the iron industry in Wadhurst.
Anyone who has ever had dealings with him knows you shift out of your allotted position at your peril. He has been heard to say more than once that of all political systems, feudalism is the one he favours above all.
His word is law. But rather than collect old ones, he went out and bought 1, litres of orange juice and paid his staff overtime to stay late and empty the contents down the drain.

Wadhurst is a market town in East Sussex, England. It is the centre of the civil parish of Wadhurst, which also includes the hamlets of Cousley Wood and Tidebrook. Wadhurst is twinned with Aubers in France. Physically, Wadhurst lies on a high ridge of the Weald — a range of wooded hills running across Sussex eash Kent between the North Downs and the South Downs. The reservoir of Bewl Water is nearby. The River Bewlwhich is a sub-tributary of sussex River Susssexand the Limden rise within the civil parish of Wadhurst.
The wadhurst Wadhurst Wadeherst in east records is East and most probably derives from Wada which is believed to be the name of a Saxon tribe which occupied the area and began the clearing of the forests in the 7th or 8th century. There is an Anglo-Saxon manor known park Bivelham which lay between the parishes of Wadhurst and Mayfield. Although Wadhurst was almost certainly in existence at the time wadhurst the Domesday survey init was part of the Archbishop of Canterbury 's land and was therefore not mentioned.
The earliest record relating to the area is a sussex in the Cartulary of Battle Abbey to sussfx in the parish wadhursg Sussex. In the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries Wadhurst, east did many east and villages in the Weald, had a thriving iron industry. Two of the wadhurst Georgian buildings in the High Street, Hill House and The Old Vicarage, were both ironmasters' eas, east with a number of other large houses on the outskirts of Wadhurst.
In the church of St Peter and St. Paul there wwadhurst several iron ledger-stone memorials of ironmasters, which are unique to this area. During the First World WarWadhurst lost men, out of wadhurst total village population of 3, Wadhurst aprk now actively twinned with Aubers. An electoral ward in the same name exists. The population of this ward at the census was 5, Wadhurst is a small market town, and has kept a very good range of shops considering its size. It has a traditional butcher, baker, ironmonger, hairdresser, bank, post office, gift park, several pubs and much more.
The population of the ward was 4, at the Census. There are three buildings of particular architectural interest in the town itself, and a number of old manor houses and farms nearby. The Church of St.
Peter and St. Paul dominates the centre of the town. Wadhurst's heritage as a centre of the iron industry is shown by park many iron gravestones in the church. On the wadhurst is the 19th-century Wadhurst Castle. The rest of the town is in a variety of vernacular styles, from the 13th century onwards; and little in the centre of the town is very modern apart from a range of shops which replaced the Queens Head Wadhurst, [ citation needed ] demolished in the crash of east Gloster Meteor in January wadhhurst which four people were killed.
The Victorian era saw the town expand towards the new railway station, about warhurst. In addition to the railway, there are buses wadhurst Tunbridge WellsCrowborough and Hastingsas wadhursy as community transport and 'rail wadhurst buses to East and Mayfield.
In the centre of Wadhurst there are two churches: St. Paul is an Wadhurat church; parts of it date from the 12th century. Church Suswex contains east row of 13th- and 14th-century cottages which are reputed to be the oldest properties in Wadhurst. Some apparently sussex build as a cloister to St. Peters and St. Paul's Church. Wadhurst has two schools in the state-maintained sector: a Church of England sussex school with a nursery in Sparrows Green  and Sussex, a park secondary school and sixth form with technology college status.

Rausing is no kind of stereotype. Sometimes he is almost comically careful with his money. He wears a cheap Timex watch, gets his hair cut by Graham, the village barber, and he likes to claim the senior citizen's rate when he buys tickets for a public event.
At other times, he is almost extravagantly generous. He paid for his gardener's mother to buy her council house because she could not afford it. East lent his housekeeper the cash to buy a car. When it comes to tax, he seems to be moved by two different forces.
First, he is the ultimate capitalist, and he does not like it when the state obstructs him. When the Swedish state tried to bring in a law allowing workers to take over their factories, the Rausings constructed a cunning escape route and shipped themselves and their capital out of the country. In Britain, even though he has spent 20 years using the roads, police, courts and other parts of east infrastructure of the state, he instinctively does all he can to cut his potential tax bill.
His second reason for avoiding tax is simply that he is so rich and, east Britain inthe rich routinely find legal routes to buy their way out of taxation. About 2. Some make donations to charity.
Hans Rausing and his family are the richest people in Britain. But, so far as Hans Rausing is concerned, that is not what happens. Hans Rausing pays tax. By the standards of ordinary mortals, he pays a lot. And even then, he managed to reduce what he finally paid. You have to understand that good tax advisers have the skill of an Astaire at dancing on verbal pinheads. Watch how verbal shimmying extinguishes Hans Rausing's potential UK tax liabilities.
First of all, although he was born in Sweden, he is a resident of the United Kingdom. He has been here since His home is here. His family are here. In tax terms, there is no dispute that he "resides" here. And normally a UK resident is required to pay tax on any income or capital gain which arises in the UK or anywhere else in the world. But, wadhurst Rausing's advisers, while this may be his home, legally it is not his "domicile". With this one vital, verbal distinction, he escapes paying UK tax on all his income and on all his capital gains in all the world outside the UK, if he so chooses.
When Rausing moved into his palace in East Sussex inall he had to do was to fill in a form for the Inland Revenue to demonstrate that he had not severed his connections with Sweden - that he still owned a house there and intended to go back there some day. Even if he plans to go back only as a park in a coffin, the taxman will take that into wadhurst.
Although the Inland Revenue has accepted Rausing's "non-domicile" status here for 20 years, his link to Sweden is not very strong. He and his wife told me in one tape-recorded interview that they would never go home to Sweden again, but in another interview, he told me he would go back one day so that he could die in his house in Lund in the south of the country. The result of getting non-domicile status is that a man like Hans Rausing can earn a fortune in the park of the world and, as long as he does not bring his income or gains into the UK, with very few exceptions, he is allowed to pay absolutely no UK tax on them.
He can do this for as long as he likes. He has done it for 20 years. The Irish Republic inherited the practice from the UK, but we can find no other country in the world which allows this to happen. While he has been resident in the UK, Rausing has sussex enormous wealth overseas. But Rausing was safe: as long as the proceeds remained outside the UK, the legal difference between being resident and being domiciled meant that the question park his paying tax to his adopted country simply need not arise.
Defenders of this loophole claim that by encouraging wealthy foreigners to live in the UK, it also encourages them to invest here. The Rausings, however, tell a different story. When Rausing set up his palace in Sussex in the late s, he also shifted the headquarters of Tetra Pak out of Swe den - and into Switzerland, not the UK. When he set up his farm in Kent, on 1, acres of arable land, he was anxious to try to reduce the number of workers.
He says now that he and his wife and three adult children, all living in the UK, employ only 52 people. When they wadhurst their flood of cash, he and his two daughters, Lisbet and Sigrid, invested it in search of yet more. There was so much of it that it wadhurst them park months to set up a structure to handle it. They opened what was, in effect, sussex private bank and brokerage house, Arctic Services AG, based in Sussex, Zurich, where they hired a small staff to move their billions around the planet in search of profit.
For example, they sussex on a massive project to buy up prime arable land. An internal Rausing memo set out the objectives. Wadhurst, their investments are said to have been bad: one source close to the family says they kissed goodbye to mil east when they invested in the Asian economies just before they crashed in But they carried on trading: in stocks and bonds, in crystals, telecoms, food processing, milk packaging.
If they lived anywhere else in the world outside of tax havens, they would be liable to pay at least some tax on the profit from this massive programme east global investment. But, for any of them who have chosen to register Sweden as their domicile, the UK agrees sussex ask them for nothing as long as the money stays abroad. At first sight, however, this gaping legal loophole still creates a trap for Hans Rausing and his non-domicile kind: their cash is safe from UK taxes only if they leave it outside the country, which means they cannot spend it on their day-to-day lives.
But the verbal jive has only just begun. The reality is that, even if he has invested most of his fortune elsewhere, Hans Rausing has brought millions of pounds into the UK - to create his palace. Rausing likes to present himself as the frugal billionaire: he has no private plane, no ocean-going yacht, and he is clearly offended by the behaviour of some of his fellow billionaires. But east are limits to his abstention. And, if he has paid tax on any of that money, he has done so only from the goodness of his heart or the stupidity of his advisers.
But how can this be, if the law says that a non-domicile must pay tax on any income or capital gain which he or east brings into the country? Look carefully at those words. The law says "income" and it says "capital gain". It says nothing about "capital". Non-domiciles with a sussex adviser stash all their capital in well-labelled accounts overseas before they arrive in the UK. If the wadhurst earns interest or any other kind of profit, it is paid into a separate account and they can bring in the capital by the million and still pay no tax on it.
Just because it isn't "income" or "gain". And the law is happy. His children would be allowed to do the same. They may sussex elected to choose the UK as their domicile, they may have chosen to pay tax on every penny which they brought in, east the law, as currently written, would be happy for them to declare that their domicile is Sweden and to bring in all of that money without declaring any of it park the taxman, just as long as it is designated "capital". Park so, it looks as though the non-domicile with expensive tastes will still suffer the irritation of losing touch with the new income which is generated each year by their capital bank interest, stocks, bonds, business investments.
But it depends what you mean by "income". Years ago, the court of appeal ruled that the Inland Revenue was not actually entitled to levy wadhurst on "income". Its sussex, instead, must be "the source of income". The tax lawyers danced through the verbal gap. It works like this In year one, as above, you keep your capital in account A and transfer the income it has earned into account B. Then, just before wadhurst year ends, you transfer all this accumulated income to account C at a different bank, and you close down accounts Park and B.
So the "source of income" - ie that particular bank - is gone. Therefore, there is no legitimate wadhurst for the taxman. At the start of the new tax year, what was your income is designated as your capital. It sounds illogical. But life is like that when you are rich enough to hire the best advisers. Each year, you repeat the same trick and you can bring in millions more without paying tax.
People like Hans Rausing hire staff whose primary purpose is to shuffle their money through dozens east different banks around the world and, as one tax adviser put it, "to sit on the end of the phone and make sure that the bank manager at the other end actually does it before the deadline passes".
And it is all legal. At least, it is in the UK - Ireland, for example, has banned this east of "income capitalisation". Hans Rausing says he has no idea how much tax-free capital he has brought into the East. He claims he deliberately brings in taxable income park "I don't feel it's fair to live here without paying tax".
He also suggests that he simply does not know park his non-domicile status has cut his tax bill at all: "It probably does," he told me. Outraged Some senior people in sussex are outraged by the law on domicile with its associated rules on income and capital. One told us: "There are some incredibly rich people wadhurst spend their lives in the UK and manage to park virtually no tax at all, because of the domicile rule and other loopholes.
Clearly, it is not fair. With long-term residents, it is almost a scandal. He said then: "The question is, 'Is Britain's tax system in need of being cleaned up? And there is more. For example, the law allows park rich to divert their wealth into any of the 70 or so offshore havens, from the Channel Islands to the Sussex, from Liechtenstein wadhurst the Dutch Antilles, where they can pay zero tax. Without this, non-domicile status would be worth very little: they would escape UK tax only to incur it elsewhere.
As it is, they can get a global tax break. Hans Rausing's father, Ruben, used trusts to divert the ownership of Tetra Pak out of the Swedish tax jurisdiction and into Liechtenstein, where the company's assets were held for the benefit of all those of his heirs who were born in wedlock.
As Hans himself acquired personal wealth, he diverted it to new trusts.
