What were the British Virgin Islands called before Richard Branson bought them? And to the direct rule of whom are they to be subjected?

All tax havens under British jurisdiction should be closed by an Act of Parliament that declared independent any British Overseas Territory or any Crown Dependency that had not complied within three months.
