How could anything British be "illegal"? I thought only foreign stuff was "illegal".

Anyway, this is rather amusing. And desperate. And English.

Theresa May will pledge to put the 52 other countries in the Commonwealth at the heart of a global Britain after Brexit, as London hosts a summit of their leaders for the first time in 20 years on Monday.

The Italian's who where fattening & finishing the cattle, where found to be still injecting hormones within the forbidden six week period before slaughter.

This came about because the Italian Health system in one area had suddenly a massive increase in unexplained problems amongst local population.

Are you sure it was an unexplained problem?

I thought the women over there were famous for growing moustaches? :scarper:

It was removed from my bag at the customs post by a very irate Spaniard who threw it into a waste bin whilst shouting " MAD COW, MAD COW "at me to the amusement of most people around me.

So, you could say that one third of the GBP's losses in the last 10 years are Brexit related.

14th June 2016 - $1.41 :£
Today $1.43 :£

So, you could say that GBP's strengthening is Brexit related.
