The list is incomplete; Hitler and Mussolini are clearly missing. :roll:

And both have followers today, in Germany and in Italy and in other places. ;)

Nero with guilt by association . . .

Hitler was also a vegan and loved Wagner. So I guess that makes all Vegan Wagner lovers, and ESPECIALLY the ones who get off on golden-showers and Hindu iconography "suspect?"

Stupid arguments, as usual, from Neromeister . . .

I am no vegan, I am mostly on keto diet, but I am a pastafarian too. I even have a pasta machine, Marcato Atlas 150. :mrgreen:

As for meat, I try this next summer:

Shop Prices Fall as Barclays Boss Says Brexit Impact Negligible, UK-U.S. Relationship More Important

by JACK MONTGOMERY6 Apr 2018347

Shop prices for British consumers have fallen since the Brexit vote, with Barclays boss Jes Staley admitting any impact from leaving the EU will be so small it goes unnoticed.

The American banker told an audience at King’s College London university that there was “reason to believe that for some period of time, the GDP of the UK will probably grow at a slower rate than it might otherwise have grown save for Brexit, but it’s going to be incremental and so it won’t make the headlines” — a far cry from the threats of recession and 500,000 to 800,000 job losses made by the government and the Remain campaign before the EU referendum.


EU loyalists have clung to the fact that Britain’s growth rate has at least slowed as something of a lifeline, although experts such as former IMF Europe Deputy Director Ashoka Mody have said this is merely a result of the fall in sterling letting the air out of a dangerous finance-property bubble and rebalancing the economy towards manufacturing.

Indeed, manufacturing and exporting continue to perform strongly — and investment spending growth in Britain was, in fact, the highest of any G7 country in 2017.

Annual growth in total investment spending — state, business and private — in the UK was the highest of any G7 country during 2017, according to figures published by the Office for National Statistics today (March 30)

5:31 AM - Mar 30, 2018


Staley also suggested that developments in the U.S. under President Donald Trump might be more important to Britain than its future relationship with the EU, as the populist leader reshapes the American economy to make it more competitive.

“In some ways bigger than Brexit is the decision of the U.S. government to drop tax rates down to 20 per cent,” he observed.

‘There’s been a pullback on some of the regulatory intensity in the U.S. and we feel that as well.

“Not only does the UK have to keep an eye on what’s going on in Brussels and how to negotiate Brexit with the European Union, we also need to keep an eye on the very dynamic and changing situation in the U.S.”

However, he was also positive about the prospects of an Angl0-American trade pact once the mooted ‘transition period’ with the EU after Brexit expires, which could strengthen ties between the two countries significantly.

“There is a particular relationship between the United Kingdom and the U.S. which is recognised on both sides of the Atlantic,” he said.

“I would think having a trade deal done with the U.S. in a very quick period of time is important to the UK, and is important to the U.S.”

Coming soon after it was revealed that London remains the world’s number one financial centre, while its closest EU competitor — Frankfurt — has slid nine places to number 20— Staley’s comments cause considerable discomfort for Remain holdouts.

With the British Retail Consortium revealing that shop prices are actually falling at the same time, despite the fall in sterling, their difficulties are compounded.

Remain’s official campaign bus promised ‘More Jobs’ and ‘Lower Prices’ in the EU, but with new EU rules threatening to inflict even more damage on the British fishing industry during the ‘transition period’ and prices falling anyway, they may have lost any public faith they once enjoyed.

You appear to disregard Breitbart but you failed to look at the sources that they cited in their article:

From the Telegraph: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/20 ... ch-output/
Quote:
Britain’s manufacturers increased growth in March, defying fears that the cold snap at the start of the month would hit output.

Factory production has increased for 20 consecutive months with healthy domestic and export demand driving growth, though there were some weather-related delays in supplies caused by the so-called Beast from the East.

The purchasing managers’ index - an influential survey of businesses run by IHS Markit - edged up from 55.0 in February to 55.1 in March.


From City A.M.: http://www.cityam.com/281841/uks-export ... since-2000

UK exports are at their strongest position since 2000 despite threats posed by Brexit, a report by Heathrow Airport and the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) has found.

Heathrow's export climate index tracks factors including the consumer confidence of the UK's main trade partners by their share of UK exports; effective exchange rate and purchasing managers index for UK new manufacturing export orders.

London has retained its top spot as the world’s leading financial centre, fending off stiff competition from New York and Asian cities, according to an authoritative study to be published today.

The global financial centres index, compiled by think tank Z/Yen, will show the City leading the pack of 110 cities analysed for the 23rd edition of the international rankings.

The City scored 794 points on the index, pipping New York to the post by one point. The ranking is based on 103 separate factors and draws on data from the World Bank, the United Nations and the OECD, as well as the survey responses of more than 2,300 financiers from around the world.


And the source regarding the decline in prices:
http://www.yourmoney.com/household-bills/54877/

Quote:
Figures from the British Retail Consortium and Nielsen show shop price deflation deepened to 1% in March from 0.8% in February.

The biggest factor in the figures was a significant slow-down in food inflation. Inflation slowed from 1.6% in February to 0.4% in March. Deflation in non-food prices eased in March, with prices decreasing at a rate of 1.9% compared to February when prices declined by 2.2%.

Fresh food inflation slowed to the lowest rate since March 2017. Prices increased by 0.3% in March on the same month last year, compared to 0.9% in February. The so-called ‘ambient’ food inflation (shelf food) rate was lower in March; prices increased by 0.6% in March on the previous year, while in February inflation stood at 2.5%.


And this was sourced from the British Retail Consortium and Nielsen

But then what do they know when compared to your picture of a chocolate bar....

As long as the negociations are in progress, there is incertainty, so the British economy does not work at its best, as investors and other economic agents don't like uncertainty. The things might even go better when UK will definitly be out of the EU. I would say that as long as Great Britain is in EU, the things are not as well as they should be for the British.
