Re: It's Still Brexit

As I understand it the proposal is for all EU states to have a minimum wage set to 60% of each of their own median wages rather than to have a single amount set as a minimum wage for the whole EU. If only we had a veto... We are either out in which case it is irrelevant. Alternatively if we are in,...

Re: Trump

Yes Trump is a moron. His recent tweets relating to "the squad" i.e. AOC et al, reinforce that view. However, I believe there's an agenda here: 1. He's rallying his base, up for 2020, i.e. traditional (and white) America against socialism/multiculturalism etc. 2. More shrewdly. He's aggra...
