Jersey: an oddity of the system

Posted on

From the Times editorial today:

It is an oddity of the system that Jersey, a Crown Dependency, not only serves as a tax haven but provides anonymity to tax avoiders.

True, in a way.

But not odd. That's a deliberate construct of the financial services industry in Jersey that sees its role to be undermining the legitimate tax income of the UK, in the porocess seeking to undermine and even destroy our democracy.

That's not odd: that's very determined.
