Northern Ireland - budding tax haven?

TJN Senior Adviser Richard Murphy has an article on the prospects for Northern Irish tax havenry in The Guardian today. He notes, in comparison to tax haven Ireland:

This follows our recent comments about Scotland's prospects for doing something similarly abusive.
