May did make some noises about developing an industrial policy/strategy when she first became PM, but little has been heard of this since. Au Contraire all the signs are that the UK will double down on a rentier model, attracting hot money from dodgy regimes and Oligrachs all over the place, and engaging in regulatory arbitrage to keep the rich happy - a sort of Giant sized Jersey.

Speaking of which, has anyone heard anything about what will happen to jersey and it's extraordinarily privileged position post Brexit? Brexit seems like a good opportunity to wipe out some tax havens like Jersey, Isle of Man, Gibraltar etc. They make even Ireland look like a model of tax probity.
