Lloyd’s List publisher Informa to flee Britain

The website of Lloyd’s List publisher Informa states:

The founding inspirers of the Philosophical Magazine and Lloyd’s List would probably have been unable to imagine where their products would be sitting more than 200 years later, but we believe they would have been pleased.

Would they pleased with the company’s  latest news though? Informa is creating ‘a new parent company that will be listed in the UK, incorporated in Jersey and tax resident in Switzerland’ to reduce its tax bill, says the Guardian.

Could Edward Lloyd be turning over in the great coffee shop in the sky right now?
