The key phrase here is "when they want to support a sector" The point Mr Allen is making is that IF Guernsey wants to support a trade that is otherwise reliant on a tax scam then they should subsidise it...otherwise LET IT DIE. He's not saying Governments should support retail with subsidies. Of course that's ludicrous. His point is that UK retailers should not have to suffer so that Guernsey ones can profit.
