You obviously have limited knowledge of the Eu.

The minimum wage and age limits are totally ignored in some S.Eu countries.

:cool:

As far as I can find, the EU doesn't set minimum age limits for employment. That's down to national governments in the individual member states. So are minimum wage limits.

If companies in these countries aren't complying with those laws (or countries don't have a minimum wage law, that's a matter for that country's government, not the EU.

"London Remains Top Financial Center in Survey Despite Brexit"

:thumbup:

Lloyds of London IS opening a Brussels office, in addition to their London office Lloyd’s of London will move jobs to new Brussels office It already has offices in Dubai and Beijing, to serve their markets.


Lloyd’s of London will announce on Thursday that it has picked Brussels as the base for its new EU subsidiary to secure a European foothold after the UK’s departure from the EU.

The announcement by the world’s biggest insurance market will be made alongside its annual results, a day after Theresa May triggered article 50 to kickstart the process of leaving the EU.

Lloyd’s is expected to shift up to 100 jobs initially to Brussels from London, where it employs about 600 people. It has a global workforce of 900. It will hammer out the details of the move with regulators over the coming months, to ensure the new hub is up and running by the time the UK leaves the EU in two years’ time.
And London may be the top financial centre at the moment, but we haven't Brexited yet. Though now that we've triggered Article 50, financial services companies now have a date that any moving has to be done by.

I think you need more than a hug.

Let’s put out the lights and go to bed.

Are you trying to tell me UKIP still has any kind of relevance anymore now that A50 has been invoked? They will go back to being nobody. How many seats did they win last election again? What was it? Oh yeah, one. Exactly what purpose do they serve, other than being a focus of ridicule and hopefully a dumping ground for the far-right wing that has ruined the once viable Tories?

I need whatever drugs you are taking, that's what I need :blink:

Forget the "S.Eu" countries. Germany "totally ignored" the nonexistent minimum wage limits imposed by the imaginary dicktatership ...until 2014... in an undemocratic vote by its unsovereign parliament.

Germany approves first-ever national minimum wage
The German parliament has approved the country's first minimum wage, in a vote in the Bundestag on Thursday.

But you must have known that... being an EU expert and all.

They didn't even win that, the only reason they got a seat is because that MP changed parties, and now that the referendum has finished he's left UKIP in any case, so NO seats in the commons for UKIP.

Ah, now we know. Germany ignored the dictatorial imposed, non-existent minimum wage and age limits of the EU, instead very likely employed a massive amount of slave labour. Thus gaining an unfair advantage over the socialistic republic of the United Kingdom. The UK which always followed the dictatorial decrees of the EU to the letter and thus ended up being one of the most divided and unequal societies within the EU, having one of the lowest productivity in the union, having 9 of the 10 poorest regions in Northern Europe. I am getting the hang of Dick's logic :rofl:

To be completely fair to Dick, what he wrote didn't actually say that the EU sets either a minimum wage or a minimum working age - he just said those matters are ignored in some southern EU states.

The wording is ambiguous. No doubt he can clarify and perhaps give examples of some of these southern EU states where there's no minimum wage and child labour isn't prohibited.

Not to be pedantic, but for accuracy, that should read: imaginary dictatorial decrees

Bit of a shambles in Germany I see with both failed asylum seekers and those granted asylum having to take the German govt to Court to claim their due rights.

Meanwhile many of the longer term immigrants are acting up and wanting the new arrivals sent packing as they are fearful of their jobs.

Interesting contrast between Eu countries with minimum wage levels, with some of the better off N.Eu counties setting a level almost ten times higher than the poorest ones.
Figures for 2015 varied between almost 2000 and only 200.
Further confirmation that the poor get poorer and the rich get richer within the Eu.
