French Mayor Names Street 'Rue du Brexit' in Honour of Anti-EU Vote as more and more French clamour for their own FREXIT
The mayor of a town in southern France has named a new street “Rue du Brexit” in honour of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.
Julien Sanchez, the mayor of Beaucaire, put the proposal to the town council, who passed it by 23 votes to nine.

From France 24.


The decision can be contested before the administrative tribunal of Nimes within the next two months, according to France Bleu news.

National Front mayor renames French street 'rue de Brexit'

The previously unnamed street lies near rue Robert Schuman and avenue Jean Monnet, which were both named after men considered to be founding fathers of the EU.

But The Guardian reported that the decision sparked ridicule when it became clear that the street in question was actually a circular thoroughfare that leads nowhere

I understand perfectly the difference between the EU and Europe.

I also understand that our successful economy (5th in the world until the Referendum) was BECAUSE of our EU membership. It's not co-incidence that we dropped to 6th (below France) after the Brexit vote.

Trading with the EU also includes a number of trade agreements with non-EU countries, including other non-EU European countries. I also understand that leaving the EU means leaving these agreements too, and any replacement agreements will likely be simply duplicates of the current ones which meet both EU and the other party's needs. Because if we want to sell to those countries, we need to meet the same standards.

Campaigners for a "hard" Brexit have asked business groups across Europe to put pressure on their governments for a free trade agreement with Britain.
Leave Means Leave has written to the chambers of commerce in all the other 27 EU states, asking them to call for a "sensible agreement regarding the terms of Britain's exit from the EU".
Isn't a 'hard Brexit' and 'free trade agreement' a contradiction?

I thought proponents of 'hard Brexit wanted a clean break with no agreements with the EU.

Britain's benchmark share index, the FTSE 100, closed at an all-time high on Wednesday, the first day of trading after the Christmas break.

The FTSE closed up by 0.54% to end the day at 7,106.08. That's the FTSE's best ever closing price, surpassing the previous high of 7,103.98 points achieved in April 2015.

The reason why, because the of the majority of companies who make up the footsie do not earn most of their profits or carry out their activities in the UK, such as banks, finance, mining, oil etc.
Its a reflection of their increased earnings , nothing to do with brexit,

Not surprising that there are no claims it has anything to do with Brexit.

I looked at the Forbes website where it says how they do their study and there are links to the various indexes used to compile the overall scoring. They reference individual annual reports for the years 2015 and in some cases 2015-16.

Not really surprising that a vote on June 23rd this year would fail to impact events and behaviours already occurring as far back as January 2015. :rofl:

It will be interesting to see the new report for December 2017 based on elements and behaviours some of which will have been post referendum.

Except of course, for the title.

But that's only a way to imply that business is booming despite brexit, because that's what people want to hear, even if there hasn't been any brexit, and whatever good economic news is only relative to that nonexistent condition (e.g., if there had been brexit, it would've been good news). So, basically, it's misleading.

Google is investing in Britain with its new European HQ creating 3,000 jobs - you guessed it, despite Brexit!

On the move, President of Google Europe Matt Brittin described the UK as a "world leader in e-commerce" with "great talent".

Brittin added: "We announced an intention to create 3,000 more jobs here in a big new investment in our facilities here, but that's only because the UK is so good at the internet that we can support companies here in that growth agenda."

... We're confused ...... ........WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BREXIT APOCALYPSE ?

Still posting old news, even yours from a few days ago.
Still ignoring that the pre brexit reduction by George Osborne in UK corporation tax is a major reason for
companies like Google moving their operations from higher tax regimes.
It would seem that ignorance and brexit go together.

Although I was reinforcing the comment about whether the gullible DickD (being diplomatic here ;)) had actually read the content. :nod:

As was said previously, Google are expanding in the UK because of changes to tax rules.

Also, here are other examples of Mr Brittin answering simple questions;


Google's Europe boss was told he lives in 'a different world' after admitting today that he has no idea how much he gets paid.
Matt Brittin faced angry MPs as he defended Google's controversial tax arrangements but insisted he 'absolutely' understood public outrage at the firm's £130million 'sweetheart' tax deal with the UK taxman last month.
And he was asked five times how much he earns before admitting: 'I don't have a figure,' drawing laughter from MPs on the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

What does it say about you that you keep posting the same old news that has little to do with brexit,95% of which relates to events that took place before the brexit vote and their influence on current events.
You are one of the best promoters of the economic benefits of continuing EU membership and of the economic governance of the Cameron, Osborne regime we have.

You are a pontificating, self-righteous buffoon and you have the nerve to lecture others about their character?

Why don't you learn the lesson from what happened to your little bum chum, stop posting your Express-fodder clickbait and attempt to have a grown up conversation like a normal person?
