Jeremy Browne MP – minister for the Overseas territories

Posted on

It’s good to see, amongst the general air of gloom, that Jeremy Browne MP has become a Minister of State at the Foreign Office responsible for the Overseas Territories.

Why is that good news?

First he’s a Lib Dem, and that has to be good news for this job. Much better than a Tory in post

Second, he’s been associated with the left of the Lib Dems – and that’s also good news for this job.

Which means he may well keep the pressure up on tax havens.

I bet they’re sweating in Georgetown.

They should be.
