    It's not entirely wrong...

    Within and without member states, non member states and now non member states there are different expectations with regards to what the EU should look like...

    The UK may be worse off in the short term but at least we're not Greece.

    Thinking a lot this morning about how back in August the scientists said without a second lockdown immediately we'd be at 66,000 deaths and the government basically told them to fuck off and stop scaremongering

    Thinking a lot about that for no particular reason u no

    The UK gov's Department for International Trade has advised companies to form European companies to avoid tariffs etc.

    British businesses that export to the continent are being encouraged by government trade advisers to set up separate companies inside the EU in order to get around extra charges, paperwork and taxes resulting from Brexit, the Observer can reveal.
    Spicier bit:
    Andrew Moss, who runs Horizon Retail Marketing Solutions, based in Ely, Cambridgeshire, which sells packaging and point-of-sale marketing displays in the UK and to EU customers, is registering a European company Horizon Europe in the Netherlands in the next few weeks, on the advice of a senior government adviser.

    This will mean laying off a small number of staff here and taking on people in the Netherlands.

    Referring to discussions with a senior DIT adviser on trade, Moss said: “This guy talked complete sense. What I said to him was, have I got another choice [other than to set up a company abroad]? He confirmed that he couldn’t see another way. He told me that what I was thinking of doing was the right thing, that he could see no other option. He did not see this as a teething problem. He said he had to be careful what he said, but he was very clear.”
    Emphasis mine

    I am not sure that this is what Brexiteers wanted.

    Not sure what you're talking about, it is entirely consistent with Brexiteer thinking. If there are no jobs in the UK then no evil foreigners will come over here and take them away from UK citizens. Mission accomplished.

    I reckon we can match them for corruption in public office though
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.
