Follow the Money
The United Kingdom is roughly 93 thousand square miles of magnificent loveliness.
Unfortunately & despite Britain's magnificent loveliness leading #Brexiteers are unwilling to put their money where their mouths are & pay their taxes.
Which is of course what #Brexit is all about
What, you didn't know?
In 2013 David Cameron wrote a personal letter to the (then) president of the European council ‘Herman Van Rompuy’ to begging him to prevent offshore trusts from being dragged into the European Union’s crackdown on tax avoidance.
Cameron demanded Rompuy make sure that offshore trusts would not be automatically subject to the same transparency requirements as companies (or the rest of us Plebs).
This demand was rejected which was when the rich Tories and their paymasters began to scream.
Of course I exclude Nigel Farage from this sudden panic; he had been fighting to have the UK leave the #EU for some 15 years by then because - and this is key as we will discover later - he had foreseen this move by the EU long before Muppet's like Jacob Ree-Mogg ever had.
But then again you see, Jacob Rees-Mogg isn't intelligent, he is educated and privileged; these are not the same things.
Nigel Farage however is intelligent, cunning, and to give credit where credit is due, determined and resilient; the same cannot be said of the rest.
More importantly, I suspect Nigel Farage has the backing of people far more intellectually adroit and ruthless than Rees-Mogg and his simpering acolytes, something which will I am sure, come out at some stage; but that is another story for another time?
This makes (as I warned in 2013) Nigel Farage by far the greatest threat to #Democracy & single most dangerous man in the UK politically, & yet - this dire warning was scoffed at by the then in charge #Centrists, all who deemed him a joke.
I note here they are not laughing now!
So for the record here let me once again repeat what I have so often said for the arrogant so called #Centrists (who actually are themselves extremists no better than the far-right wing of the Conservative Party) - it is you who are to blame for Britain's current plight.
You were warned time & again not to ignore Farage, not to ignore the plight of the poor who you looked down upon with contempt as you licked the arse of Tony Blair and his evil cadre of shsyters.
To the rest of the UK I say this.
"If you want to know why anything happens follow the fucking money!"
