It would appear he's stopped reading his own posts, let alone the content of the links. Can't blame him really - they've been suffering a lot over the past few months, what with all the free vodka. So sad but it was bound to take its toll in the end.

Davos: Theresa May hails UK as 'foreign investment hub' despite banks looking to move jobs abroad due to Brexit


... the speech was delivered against the backdrop of a business backlash against Ms May’s speech this week, which was widely seen as threatening a hard Brexit.

One leading bank, HSBC, indicated that it plans to move 1,000 jobs from the bank's London business to Paris in direct response to EU withdrawal.

Barclays is looking to route activities through Ireland and Germany, while Switzerland's UBS is preparing to move posts from the UK to the continent.

Furthermore – in the starkest warning issued yet – leading carmaker Toyota said it was working out how it could “survive” Brexit.

Its chairman, Takeshi Uchiyamada, told the Financial Times: “We have seen the direction of the Prime Minister of the UK, we are now going to consider, together with the suppliers, how our company can survive.”

Ms May’s use of the phrase “Global Britain” could be seen as a retort to a German newspaper which carried the front-page headline “Little Britain”, after her Brexit speech.

In setting out the terms of engagement, May had no option but to hang tough. That is what her EU opposite numbers have been doing for six months of virtual denial of Brexit. Much of "Brussels still does not believe it will happen, while Europe’s elected politicians at least sense that anti-EU sentiment is growing in their backyards. There are stirrings of a peasants’ revolt, with votes for pitchforks. The last thing they want is a crowing, preening British leader seeking “to have my cake and eat it”. Hence their cursory treatment of May in her few EU encounters so far. To them, she is toxic.

That is why the prime minister clearly felt the need to lay the revolver of “hard Brexit” on the table, to tell the Brexit deniers that Britain would be just fine on the deep blue sea. She threatened them with a trade war and fiscal blitzkrieg. She threatened an offshore Singapore, a Grand Cayman, a 51st state of America, a thousand City traders unleashed on Europe’s banks if “passporting” is denied. Much of this was bravado, but jingoism was the tactic of the moment."

Those £billions also subsidised other members to compete with us.

Free trade my asshole



Nothing's free in this world Fred. Got your chequebook at the ready to pay your subs to the UK?

Gambling tax blow as Gibraltar is deemed 'one entity' with UK


Britain and Gibraltar count as one EU state in terms of a key aspect of the single market, a senior EU lawyer has said in an opinion that could affect the territory’s life after Brexit.


The lawyer rebuffed a challenge by Gibraltar’s huge electronic gambling industry, the mainstay of its flourishing economy, against new taxes imposed by Britain in 2014.

The industry said Britain was trying to tax what should be part of the free movement of services, one of the so-called “four freedoms” of the EU market along with people, goods and capital.

But the advocate general to the European Court of Justice (ECJ), Maciej Szpunar, “takes the view that, for the purposes of the freedom to provide services, Gibraltar and the UK are to be treated as one entity,” the court said in a statement.

Therefore the UK has the right to impose the domestic tax, because it is not covered by EU law, which would bar London from introducing a tax having an impact on another EU state.

British Chancellor Philip Hammond said on Friday it was an "open question" whether migrants from the European Union would enjoy easier access to Britain after Brexit than those from other parts of the world.

it's also been good to see their favourite mouthpiece, the Guardian, publish ever increasing numbers of pro Brexit articles recently, the like of which would have been unthinkable six months ago and furthermore point out how many pro Remain organisations got their post referendum prophecies so totally wrong.

:thumbup:

While recognising your scrupulous avoidance of insults with such sophisticated terms as "remoaners", perhaps you would care to define in what way The Guardian comment column you quoted was "pro-Brexit"? Preferably using the whole article, not just two paragraphs of it out of context.

Ideology is a dangerous thing Dick. It makes people bend or ignore facts and truths if they don't suit the ideology in question. May is less ideological than you, a deal will be cut that allows access to the single market and some sort of work/live permit system that isn't much different from what we have, in effect. You can spin that as a flag-waving triumph, and the exact same people will be the winners as before.
