Not *that* confident then to risk his own time and cash on the case. Emil December 10, 2016 at 11:30 am For the record it should be noted that MPS was a politically-run bank Bloke in Wales December 10, 2016 at 11:34 am In other EU news, late entry Soapy Jo threatens long time winner, Ritchie, for “Cunt of the Year” prize…. Can someone explain how getting a ruling from a foreign court can prevent the UK government invoking art.50? Mr Ecks December 10, 2016 at 11:35 am This is another one of yopur blind spots Tim. The govt should rescue the banks Superman style? Debtors should “rescue” those they owe money too by doing what? If they had real resources they wouldn’t need to borrow the money in the first place. Funny money or some bail-in scam is it. This kind of malarky also gives bonus gloss to the scum of the state as serving some useful function. Those who cause the problems rarely have the brains or motivation to solve them and the state will only ever do what it always does–create bad circs all round and then try to get more power from promising remedies to those circs. They get the power and the remedies aren’t worth shit. The Meissen Bison December 10, 2016 at 1:02 pm Timmy Is there some reason you can’t reproduce your ‘elsewheres’ here on your blog? I only ask because of Forbes… (and apologies if you’ve previously answered this Q Tim Worstall December 10, 2016 at 1:07 pm I do 5 to 7 elsewhere’s a day. So I’m not going to link to them all (yes, a bit of a Stakhanovite at present – need the money). And the reason I don’t reproduce them here, aside from not linking them all, is that when someone reads a piece at Forbes I get paid. Not a lot, penny a read that sort of level, but that’s where my income comes from. Diogenes December 10, 2016 at 1:14 pm Noel, soapy Jo has been cvnt of the year for me ever since Jan 1. He really is a cvnt and soapy to boot. PF December 10, 2016 at 1:31 pm What will happen? Will the EU change tack / extend their deadline (MPS is then self contained) or will it develop into a full blown crisis? Where are you going to place your bet (put your money) – on the basis that the bookies might be safer than MPS… The Meissen Bison December 10, 2016 at 2:28 pm Fair ’nuff. Rob December 10, 2016 at 3:09 pm That’s the spirit! The perfect way to get the British people back on your side – get foreigners to block Brexit! Pcar December 10, 2016 at 8:40 pm @BiW “Can someone explain how getting a ruling from a foreign court can prevent the UK government invoking art.50?” +1 I have been wondering the same since reading it on DM. Verdict: RoI Dublin Court rules UK Gov’t can’t leave EU. How does that work? firefoxx December 11, 2016 at 12:08 pm Tim – good analysis. A couple of small typos: Para 4 The banks is actually Para 11 which this is a god idea. Tim Worstall December 11, 2016 at 12:15 pm Ta for that. I’d already caught one of those two but no one ever truly gets all their own typos. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
