I’d missed this on the BBC Isle of Man website:
The UK deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, has pledged to support all "transparent" tax jurisdictions.
He was speaking at the 15th meeting of the British-Irish Council held in the Isle of Man on Monday.
Mr Clegg's statement comes as the European Union examines the effects of the island's Zero-Ten tax regime.
He said: "Tax jurisdictions shouldn't create perverse incentives to investors and so deprive exchequers of legitimate income".
"We will continue to promote and defend the Crown dependencies but only within the context of wider moves within the European Union in order to make sure there is full transparency," he added.
That looks like support for my Plan B for these places to me.
And for once, that’s an OK ConDem policy.
