Political leaders and money launderers are considering Anglesey as their next offshore tax haven.
That’s according to North Wales law firm Tossers and Scumbags, who have reportedly been approached by several individuals looking to move money after the Mossack Fonseca scandal.
Lawyer Jimmy Bellend told WalesOnCraic:
“Anglesey is a perfect place for people to hide money. There’s also plenty for these people to do once they get there – we’ve got a golf club, Plas Cadnant Secret Gardens, and of course, the Beehive Preserves Jam Factory. We’ve even got an airport so they can arrive by private jet or helicopter, or they can get the Holyhead ferry if they’re coming from Ireland. We’re always looking to boost our tourism here and to have such esteemed names on our shores would be most welcomed.”
But some residents have expressed their concern over the new plans. Rhodri DoubleChin from Amlwch said:
“I’m not really sure how it all works but I really don’t want more people coming here. I’m quite happy as I am thank you. The last thing we need is tourists coming over here and using our walkways. That really isn’t on.”
