Stick it on MAX and it goes back to the 50s.

You'd be hard put to guess where joining the EEC happens.

Empiricism, the cornerstone of all true knowledge. The dismal science is pretty dismal in comparison.

Do not worry, after brexit you have bright future ahead, economically. ;)

Just toss May off and have the Egg-Nogg instead and everything will be fine. Oh, just beware general elections, so better make him a lord protector right away.

PS. You will get fox hunting back when independent. ;)

And this is after 8 years of Obama trying pretty hard to "throttle" entrepreneurs in the U.S.!

An interesting video with some good points.

EU Fines:

Intel – 1.06 billion euros

Microsoft – 899 million euros AND 561 million euros

Facebook – 110 million euros

Special mention: Apple – 13 billion euros (in unpaid taxes)

Hmmmm, I can't think of a reason why tech companies would want to avoid Europe.

Nope, gobmint still desperate to keep us in and pretend otherwise.

By treaty we leave on 29th March 2019, however there will almost certainly be another treaty that keeps us aligned in some fashion. They are still haggling over how aligned that will be, a lot, or a little.
