Short cuts in Jersey

From the latest edition of the London Review of Books, an article that begins:

"There was an awfully genteel protest organised by the Tax Justice Network in Jersey earlier this year."

The article isn't that long, and it's very nicely written - go and read it! Among other things, we like this from the concluding paragraph, which we'll be adding to our quotations page:

"It may be helpful to think of the financial networks that converge on London as a recharged version of the British Empire, held together by modems rather than gunboats and overseen by the mother of all anachronisms, the British political system."

Well said.
Zut alors! Where's that blinking 'o' gone now?
