Reality: Barclays admitted that of the £2billion taxes they took credit for, only £113m was corporation tax. The rest was taxes paid by their staff - the vast majority of whom would remain in the UK even if Barclays shifted its HQ overseas. 

The Independent Banking Commission's interim report, in April 2011, stated that only £3billion of financial services tax contribution can easily be moved out of the UK.  That is less than 1% of UK tax takings.
