    What about Postman Pat and Fireman Sam?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Amazon will deliver it - on the minimum wage - and bounce the profit from Amsterdam to Dublin and then the Caribbean. Well done EU!

    The president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, spent years in his previous role as Luxembourg’s prime minister secretly blocking EU efforts to tackle tax avoidance by multinational corporations, leaked documents reveal.

    Years’ worth of confidential German diplomatic cables provide a candid account of Luxembourg’s obstructive manoeuvres inside one of Brussels’ most secretive committees.

    The code of conduct group on business taxation was set up almost 19 years ago to prevent member states from being played off against one another by increasingly powerful multinational businesses, eager to shift profits across borders and avoid tax.

    Little has been known until now about the workings of the committee, which has been meeting since 1998, after member states agreed a code of conduct on tax policies and pledged not to engage in “harmful competition” with one another.

    However, the leaked cables reveal how a small handful of countries have used their seats on the committee to frustrate concerted EU action and protect their own tax regimes.

    just watch soon one of the Bremoaners will be along to deny it all and declare the Guardian as a false prophet.

    Why is that shocking?

    It is well known Juncker, the great administrator, was up to no good.

    This tends to be my internal image of the EU top brass from one of the best movies of all time.

    By the way almost all of the top EU politicians seem mired in scandal.

    The evidence of Luxemburg's rise to tax haven is evidence enough for most.

    Yeah like your kids will give a sh!t when they're on the dole queue a few years from now.
    We're leaving the EU, most likely on the worst possible (WTO) terms, so why are you banging on about it?
    Rather than psychologically justify your poor decision by finding bad stuff about the EU (which TBH you could find about local politicans here or in the US or anywhere for that matter), spend your time planning and working out what your survival/thriving stategy will be for when we go WTO, because it aint going to be pretty.
    Hard Brexit now!
