It isn’t getting any better. Far from it.

The nationalist project to explore whether Cornwall can learn from the governance example of Guernsey met more biting reality with the story that Guernsey is one of the offshore tax havens used by the very, very, very rich to purchase very, very, very expensive flats in London.

Read the story of tax havens and housing here.

Yes, I know the nationalist interest is about governance not the financial model but I do not believe they can be easily separated; I think the economy and finance underpin and are central to the success of any constitutional entity in the world whether or not recognised formally in a constitution.
