'Hypocritical' EU tax index criticised by CM

A new index of international tax credibility has been criticised by the chief minister.

The Isle of Man features on the list, alongside the USA, China and 78 other jurisidictions - none of which are EU member states.

It's been designed to replace a widely-criticised 'blacklist' of nations which don't follow 'ethical' tax principles.

But Allan Bell says he's concerned over Europe's latest posturing, and maintains that every nation has the right to set its own rules.
