Actually I would refer to a certain postal bookseller who did a sweetheart deal with some tinpot little European country so that they pay miniscule tax. Guess who was in charge of that country and who has gone on to run the EU. There is no smoke without fire, as the old saying has it.
Man is not lost, only temporarily uncertain of his position
Oh, I don't take it personally at all since I am not concerned except for the fact that most of the EU now feels "good riddance" and we are a bit impatient to finish it. I am just sorry about what will happen next to the UK, which is a friendly country.
