    I am not that far out am I? Ok 2066 ,it probably seemed like a thousand years to the Anglo-Saxon.
    OK who introduced the class system to Britain.
    The working class drink Ale and the upper class drink wine and own properties in France ,what is that all about then .
     
  2. Also very old news.

    Anyone would think this has never been done before.

    Are there any remainers who do not live in the UK for tax purposes, I wonder? :rolleyes:

    Not sure about A, but I could start at B.

    So another rich person leaves the UK to pay less tax. Has this not been going on for some years? Certainly before brexit was in the pipeline anyway.
    So what is it that bothers people so much these days? That they aren't paying tax in the UK and the treasury loses out, or that they were vocal when talking about brexit?

    It's relevant that the anti-EU campaigners who put us into this omnishambles are scampering away from it.

    We already knew that the well-established tax-dodgers wanted to hang on to the generous treatment they received

    Why are the Tory fanatics eager to run away from the EU?

    of course it's not because they want to give more money to the NHS.

    What sort of crook would say something like that?

    Did he? Down to him is it? Well, hanging is too good for him then.

    (and I think you meant 'is' scampering away).

    So the brexit thing is the real reason why people are peed off. I did wonder why other companies who have moved don't get a mention...

    thank you for pointing out my missing "s"

    Very amusing.

    Companies that are victims of the brexing omnishambles have been mentioned many times.

    Opprobrium attaches to the instigators.

    Welcome.

    Was Ratcliffe an instigator or a supporter of brexit? I thought the instigator was Cameron and a few of his chums..

    Moving a company out of the UK and the UK losing a lot of tax, that I can understand why people get peeved, but I can also understand a company moving out to pay less tax.. (greed will override patriotism with most!). However, someone who supports brexit and moves out gets vilified because they happen to have an opinion on the UK's membership of the EU is just another example how out of hand this whole thing has become. Has this man caused brexit? Did he make people vote to leave?

    As I said, there are many companies who moved out and have done for years, but because their stance on brexit was never made public, it seems that they have committed a lesser crime somehow...
