Brexit questions in the Telegraph we can answer

What will happen if the UK leaves the EU?

Broadly speaking, we get to decide what then happens. As opposed to remaining, when we don’t get to decide.

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    We can be pretty sure what won’t happen – Cameron’s Ten Plagues won’t happen. No angel will come and slaughter the First Born. Nor will there be seven years of famine stalking the land.

    We need a new ruling class. This one has failed. All over the West.

    Yeah but would we decide any better? I would hope so. For instance, the EU is moving to declare robots “electronic people”. So they will be liable for social security taxes, naturally:

    Europe’s growing army of robot workers could be classed as “electronic persons” and their owners liable to paying social security for them if the European Union adopts a draft plan to address the realities of a new industrial revolution.
    ….
    The draft motion, drawn up by the European parliament’s committee on legal affairs also said organizations should have to declare savings they made in social security contributions by using robotics instead of people, for tax purposes.

    While it is true that our own mistakes are preferable to the mistakes of others, I would be much happier if I believed that our own idiots would not make the same mistakes.

    Still, vote to Leave. It means fewer lamp posts will be needed and it will be less far to travel to get some rope. And needless to say, they can have my Sexbot when they pry it off my cold, dead ….. Oh wait. Let’s not go there.
