Jersey are even making up MPs in support of their cause

Posted on

The Jersey Evening post reported today:

A SENIOR MP has dropped the strongest hint yet that changes to Jersey's business tax system have the consent of the UK Treasury.

They then showed a picture of someone they called John Whittingham MP.

There's a slight problem thouygh: there is no one in the House of Commons by that name.

I think they mean John Whittingdale MP, but to call him senior (barring age) is stretching the limits. His career has gone pretty much nowhere in 19 years.

This is really plumbing desperation stakes.

Especially as the decision is not the Treasury's to make. But Jersey probably doesn't know that, and I'm sure John Whittingdale doesn't either.
