    “Why should my donations go to German Shepherds? We won the war after all. I didn’t die 5 times in the trenches so the RSPCA could help German dogs.“

    This is England, 2019:

    Words fail me. If you don’t know who he is, Jolyon Maugham is an anti-Brexit QC who has made many legal challenges to Brexit including one over spending by the Vote Leave campaign.

    William will have to wait until Charlie boy kicks the ****ing bucket unless you want to do away with the notion of an hereditary monarch and go for the populist choice. We could hold a Britain's Got Talent contest to find the next head of state but who the **** would want that. Oh I forgot the Americans have it already.

    That's a really odd opening line.

    That info is incorrect.........the British were the first to introduce ATOL in 1973 to ensure British holiday makers were protected if a TA went down. Not Europe.......

    Just so you know, we had such a scheme before the regulations were introduced.

    That regulation simply means that we couldn't cut the scheme and European companies all had to follow suit with such a scheme. meaning that no airline could seek to benefit and gain a competitive advantage over British companies by not funding protection for its consumers, including British expats.
    One of those red tape rules the EU introduces that brexiteers keep talking about wanting to get rid of. But it benefits everyone except greedy corperations. And benefitting the UK companies especially over European companies

    Edit: Beddy beat me to it.
