Something fishy? Coy Carping at international publicity.

Something fishy? Coy Carping at International publicity.

Being labelled a “Tax Haven” does funny things to Jersey’s normally publicity hungry economy because the island’s promoters go all shy.

Nick Mathieson, Business reporter for the London based Observer Newspaper was in Jersey along with many other International Journalists for the March 12th Tax Havens “Past, Present and Future” manifestation. But the event was boycotted by virtually all the local Finance Industry and senior Jersey Politicians.

However, Nick Mathieson here expresses the wider world view. Tax Havens like Jersey must expect to be subjected to much more examination and scrutiny in the future…..so wake up Terry, Phil and co!

PS does anybody need a few hundred thousand square feet of empty office space, with wonderful sea views, soon to be completed?

PPS MEANWHILE in the Turks and Caicos islands Westminister has seized back control of the islands because of corruption - see Angullian Bloglink on the left of this page.
