A little late this week, but the quality makes up for it! Ready to pay for Brexit until retirement? Taking back your country, eh? Your third biggest corporation just fled the country! Soon Brexiteers will literally have the country to themselves.

Special report: Even if economically illiterate Brexiteers don’t care that you will be permanently poorer than your peers on the continent, they WILL care about this one (Britain is a nation of notorious alcoholics after all, and after heavy drinking comes an early morning kebab, I understand):

How do you decide if you're going to put an article in Main list and Opinion list? To me, your methodology seems confused.

If he replies then he hasn't ignored me (because why would he? He loves calling his respondents all sorts of names, now I don't have to read any of it )

No jobs will be lost in the Unilever situation. Plus is it not a generalisation to call the British a nation of alcoholics?

It's a brutal symbolic blow to Brexit supporters (even if Unilever denies this has anything to do with Brexit, which is of course nonsense:https://www.independent.co.uk/voices...-a8257596.html) to lose one of your few truly big companies, and will have major impact on tax revenues for the British government.


Also: 'It is moving a small number of people from London to Rotterdam, but is keeping its building at Blackfriars in London.'

I never said everyone in Britain is an alcoholic. It is a fact though that alcohol consumption per capita is extremely high in the UK, that many people use it irresponsibly (unless some other nations with high per capita intake), and that inebriated Brits have quite the reputation, home and abroad.

He's a troll, he'd be perfect for the footie forum where banter is a way of life & people stand up for him. Whereas he cannot be taken seriously in serious discussion forums
