    Oh dear, I actually met a lady who came back to Europe from Venezuela recently, they had many properties, were quite well off, now her properties worth nothing, she has no money at all, she is trying to get any job back in Europe to support her family back in Venezuela (as she has a European passport) when I say any job, I mean any job, even going for dog walking or health care assistant.. anything ... but the problem is she is already 63, hardly worked at all as she spent her life as a housewife / landlady.... I felts so bad for her, imagine this happening to someone at 63!!

    He probably realised the price of a beer over there meant he spent more than he saved on tax. At the top end, it won't be the super-rich who leave en-masse (although I'm sure some will) but their money certainly will. If it hasn't already...
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    Where do you get that from? If Corbyn doesn't win a majority, he'll be out the door; if he does, he'll be expected to deliver what the puppet-masters demand, or he'll be out the door.

    The super rich don’t pay tax here anyway. They won’t be leaving, and their money was never here to start with (except for the bit tied up in high-end Kensington properties).
