The UK government always said it could not legislate for Jersey.
And so it said it would not intervene to stop tax abuse and corruption.
But apparently, when it comes to fish there are no such problems. Suddenly it can legislate after all. And Jersey is not happy:

The truth is, of course, that it could always have legislated to stop tax abuse and corruption, but it chose not to.
That it now thinks it can legislate on fish proves that.
And shows that it never had any intention of beating tax abuse and corruption.
Which does, of course, show how corrupt it is.
