I wonder how they managed to keep this out of the headline news all this time? Pretty shocking to know they are STILL AT IT

Our current Chancellor was working for one of these banks where this was taking place, and now he is charge of the UK money.

And in the meantime, the important thing has been to claw back a few quid a month from people's benefits and keep health and council services on a starvation diet.

Naturally, this will all be magically fixed by brexit.....

Of course it will be, after 11pm the UK will suddenly find itself to be the land of milk and honey, all homeless people will have homes, all mental health problems will disappear and everyone will have a bottomless bank account. The NHS will be fully staffed everywhere, and all buildings will repair themselves

Yes, there will be lots of coaches in every city and town, so that, at 11pm, all non british can get on to a coach, this will take them to a port where on of the ships owned by the company that has no ships will be ready to take them over to France where they will be let off and allowed to make their own way back to where they came from.

That sums up the article nicely as well. Who in their right mind dubbed the scam 'cum ex'.
