"Crooks - Complaining About Crooks - Priceless!"

Island in another celeb tax avoidance exposure

Jersey's finance industry has been back in the headlines with more claims that celebrities are using the island to avoid paying UK tax.

The front of today's Times (05 Oct) claims 2,000 wealthy investors - including BBC Watchdog presenter, Anne Robinson, and three members of pop band Take That - have avoided paying more than a billion pounds thanks to a Jersey-based scheme.

Last week Sir Philip Bailhache was at the Lib Dem Party Conference trying to get the message across that the island was a reputable financial centre.

But Sir Philip says the island has been unfairly singled out. He spoke to Jess Dunsdon.
