There is a major economic crisis in a number of semi-British tax havens.
The Cayman Islands are bankrupt and considering having to (shock, horror)introduce taxes; there is also a crisis in the Isle of Man following cuts in UK subsidies (see… which also explains the tax structure there).

We should tie our demands for Jersey up with demands in the UK along the
lines of 'Tax the rich' requiring a major crackdown on tax havens and link it with demands for 'real jobs' there. In practice, I imagine that the tax status only means jobs for accountants, lawyers and a few clerical workers with most others outside the public sector dependent on servicing the rich or tourism.
