    Pity there's no agreement between the UK and the rest of Europe.

    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    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.

    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    This is why, from 2015, countries will also be required to exchange information on individuals’ income earned from employment, directors' fees, life insurance, pensions and property.
    This already happens in the continent. If you try to open a bank account in, say, Germany and you're bankrupt in the Netherlands, the bank knows. At least so I was told by my then-manager in NL-land.
