Rumblings of turning the UK into some kind of European tax haven. I really hope that's not the plan.
If it puts the Kibosh on Jean-Claude Juncker's Luxembourg then that's a good thing, especially if we're open and above board about it all :)

Hard Brexit and UK a tax haven then... should have put that message on the bus. If anyone is going abroad soon, they might want to buy some foreign currency before that speech by TM, the pound has tanked enough since last summer

So after the enlightening phrases  "Brexit means Brexit" and a "Red White and Blue Brexit", what can we expect from tomorrow...


Brexit is as Brexit Does?


Ready Brexit?


A Right Royal Brexit?

He can't. Not until the UK completes its exit from the EU.

We already have a trade deal with the USA. Post Trump watch out for imported chlorine dipped chickens, lower standards on just about everything and the 20% increase in the price of imported raw materials should see any UK manufactured goods rendered noncompetitive. I suppose we can be more lapse about the impact of global warming as Trump doesn't see it as a problem.

A few days after Mark Carney's (bullshitter) volte face, I see the IMF (bullshitters) have revised UK growth upwards  from 0.4% to 1.5%

Compare this with the assurance, boldly and unambiguously stated before the referendum by members of the government, both then and now, that a successful Leave vote would mean the UK leaving the single market. Now THAT, in contrast, is unambiguously a promise.

And Theresa has just made this very point in her speech! Superb.
