Tax haven cities of the UK?

Posted on

I missed this announcement on 23 December:

These are the places applying to be cities in 2022:

Peel, Isle of Man; Douglas, Isle of Man; Georgetown, Cayman Islands and Gibraltar are on the list.

Each likes to claim it is quite independent of the UK, except when it suits them of course. Then they are tax havens doing their utmost to undermine the UK tax system and the rule of law in this country.

If confirmation was required that the best sign that a place is a tax haven is having the Queen's head on its stamps this surely is all that is required.

The hypocrisy on all parts, from the monarch, to the government, to these places, is quite staggering.
