Good riddance to bad rubbish. That will mean cheaper office space for PATRIOTIC BRITISH BUSINESSES.

Unless of course "Banker" is now Brexit dog whistle code for the gentleman in question's ethnoreligious origin.

Quite possibly, but as it ain't going to happen there seems little point in stressing over it.

Might as well fret about a direct (ELE) asteroid strike which is only marginally less likely.

I have never studied German, but a quick look at some of the language resources suggest that German is really not hard for a native English speaker to learn. If my banker bonus depended on a few weeks of intensive language lessons Ich würde sehr schnell Deutsch sprechen.

Indeed. Yet plenty of Americans cannot grasp the basics of English despite it being (allegedly) their native tongue.

And as they are likely to remain the major driving force in world banking for the foreseeable future, it will always matter more that one has English as a first language.

You won't get far in this world assimilating the linguistic ability to simply order Bratwurst mit pommes! :wink

Hmmm. But Peter Hargreaves is pro. Brexit and he probably knows a bit about economics too. Not even experts can predict the future with any certainty.

Do we have a database instance to track all this? Perhaps we could hire Suity to maintain the db server, and Scootie to copy/paste some CSV to an Excel bar chart (aka "data mining" to borrow the language of Scootie's CV).

The Official Receiver is a reasonable place to start for data.

Like your thinking on the dream team. Scoots also gets travel booking and expense admin. Shauny is doing catering. Originalpm and his mum are project managing. Darren is manager of testers. PC is BAU Support and general odd jobs.

Excellent, I'd like to propose sas as motivational speaker when the delivery misses all critical deadlines, like "turn on database server", and fails all acceptability tests. Perhaps our BAU support monkey could stretch to data QC too? As in, "this settlement looks too small to be realistic".

Yep, he will be spending precisely 1 hour 45 minutes longer at Frankfurt airport. Which is the time it takes for his private jet to refuel there on the way to somewhere that does not suck balls.

Being an American listed company, repeatedly prosecuted here and in the states for Criminal activity (https://www.corp-research.org/goldman-sachs), I'd say let the Germans have them.

Good. Bagpuss can be in charge of accountancy. Churchill was down to help out, but wants to check first that he won't have to work for Jews.

I'd start with those who trade against the pound, from London, to enrich their paymasters fuelled by huge slush fund payments . If the FCA (and previously FSA) hadn't been so useless they'd have been given their marching orders years (decades) ago.

Will they be able to trade to back the pound?

So would you introduce a crime of economic sabotage? What would this achieve, when such trades would just occur in other jurisdictions?

Just remind me again of why it is the 'workers' are so important to the wealth of the nation, oh yeah so long as they're working they are contributing to the Treasury. Last time I looked they had the Labour party to cater for their needs.

They should raise membership to £10 a year minimum. They would get several million Tories who will pick the least electable candidate.

And then they would get elected by the rest of the British public.
