. . . the shame about the tax avoidance is that no one is investing in England. not even the people with a moral duty like the monarchy. so all the factories are being built in low wage economy countries like China.

There's lots of investment in UK, including inward investment.
Many football clubs are owned by the rich overseas.
Many London properties are being bought by the super-rich in the Arab states.
The (second) Severn Bridge is/was owned and run by a French conglomerate.
The Chinese are likely to finance (partly) the next atomic power stations.

I'm sure if I delved deeply enough I'd find foreign investment in nearly every industry in the UK.
