So... the link tax won't happen in the UK because of Brexit, right?

This seems like an attack on American corporations that choose to locate in Ireland.

Will we see an Irexit?

With the worst prime minister since Chamberlain? Who knows.

That's weird, day after day, the EU (and our ruling class) manages to make me give up everything I stood in favor before. Now I am forced to say that I am against taxes, thanks to EU :(

Don't worry, L-P.

It's not really a tax. It's more of a compulsory royalty. Think of it that way. ;)

In a way, those measures have a good side: more and more people reject the EU. It is another nail in the European coffin. I am affraid, though, that the eurocrats will take many other bad decisions like that one before we get ride of them. We saw it in Greece and we see it in Italy: they don't want to leave their position and are ready to do anything possible to keep it.

And you will vote for National Rally next time.

Nice.
