Why is the UK still the hub of the tax haven world?

What do these places have in common?:

Anguilla

Bermuda

British Virgin Islands

Cayman Islands

Gibraltar

Guernsey

Isle of Man

Jersey

Montserrat

Turks & Caicos Islands

Why do we permit that in 2015?

And yes, I know I have ignored the biggest of them all: the City of London.
