A senior Jersey politician has called for the island to "be ready to become independent" in the wake of a slew of political attacks and crackdowns on its tax schemes, it has been reported.


Sir Philip Bailhache, the island's assistant chief minister, wants officials to begin preparations for severing links with the UK, claiming the largest of the Channel Islands was getting a "raw deal".
