I suspect you are correct, nuff101. I also suspect that ammpmmxway is an alternate id for one of the perennial idiots that haunts the Altria (MO) board. He seems to spend his days gleefully propagating any news that he thinks is detrimental to capitalist activity. He's really a pathetic and sad individual.
I find it unlikely that U.S. citizens will be subject to a British tax for holding shares in a Dutch company. Especially where that Dutch company carries on most of it's business outside of the UK. ; )
Well he is wrong using the word "effect"... he should have used "affect"... but if he is an American owner of RDSB shares, I find it highly unlikely that he would be subject to the Crown's taxation... wasn't that issue settled in 1776 ? ; )
