…we hear the sound “drip, drip”. Today it is Total planning to move its financial management from London to Paris.

There will be a lot more of this to come.

I did not say it would stop Brexit. It will be a consequence, one of many negative consequences, courtesy of Leave voters. You voted for it and you will own it.



FIAT - hi

So - your posts will have no practical effect then.
I suppose the ‘displacement activity’ gives you something to do


So what. i am not trying to stop Brexit with these posts. I am simply commenting on the likely consequences of Brexit Your responses will not deter me from discussing this.

FIAT - hi

I’m sure the other Remainers will carry on doing the same displacement activity as you to keep each other happy (or is it miserable?).

The good news keeps on coming



…we hear news, that isn’t always as bad as we were led to believe.


Trisco - hi

Agree m8. In the remainers parallel universe … good news is bad news.

No it wasn’t. No other country in the world required you to pay for a license for owning a TV. It was a joke then, it is unbelievable today.

Typical Tory. Tax, Tax, Tax., the more regressive the better.


Are you really pretending the RICS index wasn’t down 12% in December?


Oh yes you are. What a short-sighted idiot.



I’m highlighting a report showing an improvement to the housing market, following the election. Given the uncertainty over how Brexit would pan out, or who would form a Government after the election, it’s of little surprise the housing market was massively subdued in the latter half of 2019.

However, that has now passed, 2019 is now history, and RICS are reporting what appears to be some positive news. No need for anyone to get carried away, least of all Brexiteers, but if you want to rubbish it, discredit it, or turn your nose up then carry on.

This is the Everyday thread - a thread designed to publish bad news stories about Brexit.

I thought I’d publish a positive one.

I must say, I’m rather shocked that you’d jump to find fault.


Eadwig - good morning

As selective and blinkered as usual I see.
I referred to the BBC (the clue if it helps your comprehension deficit), is that it stands for the British Broadcasting Corporation.
The examples I subsequently gave were of competitive companies it now faces in the UK.
Good to see that you (apparently) think that the ‘tax’ (aka licence fee) the BBC receives is wrong - and always has been!
No other country in the world required you to pay for a license for owning a TV. It was a joke then, it is unbelievable today.
Typical Tory. Tax, Tax, Tax., Wrong again m8- as a Conservative I want to reduce taxation.
A good start is to abolish the BBC (just to remind you again British ) License Fee
