No it isn’t

Brussels is poised to extend Britain’s right to control the €660 trillion (£563 trillion) euro clearing market at the start of next year in a significant post-Brexit boost for the City, the boss of the London Stock Exchange has said.

Britain doesn’t control it and won’t control it. Britain no more controls this than Boris controls the amount of booze that teenager had at the party last night.

This is activity which takes place within Britain, not activity done or controlled by Britain.

  1. Lying always was the default of all Govt but Blojob Johnsons crew of conmen abuse the Truth daily far more than any other collection of UK cunts in remembered history. Having lived through far too much classic lying-from Deadwood Heath’s decimal horsehit to the EU 75 and subsequent remainiac bollocks to Project Fears well-deserved failure to the present pile of mixed virus/vax/ greenfreak Marxist shite–now is the worst time for honesty and the Age of the most piss-poor agit-prop. That lying twat Heath at least had a small amount of attempted style with group “The Scaffold” –very appropriate name–warbling his lying bullshit.

    Bogus J is a low deceitful scumbag served by the worst pack of Marxist bullshit sellers ever. Steve’s line: Adverts that show UK as some sort of African shithole with a bizarre tolerance for homos–try it in real Africa and bring your dick home in a bag if u survive. And electric car lies that seem to promise things will be the same in 10 years-just electric. Instead of shank’s pony and shite buses for we plebs if we are dim and cowardly enough to kiss Johnson’s fat Green-Marx arse. And the new crop of “don’t eat meat shite” newly emerging. All cockrot for the lowest Grade Z morons to lap up or not. 18th Century handbills had more persuasive power. At least they were written by well-schooled authors like Fielding or Swift.

    Johnson is an evil man amidst the sea of bunglers that make up UK political scum. Don’t buy BiS stuff about how he is a bungler. This is a worldwide evil scam in which Blojob Johnson is a key figure of deliberate malice. He needs to pay with his life for the treason he and his gang of clapping BlueLabour seal scum MPs have already done–added and abetted by the even nastier scum of Labour.

  2. This really must be some sort of ‘bot, recently upgraded to use GPT-3.

    Moving on, the LSE owns the Italian exchange, plus various bits and pieces. The merger with Deutsche was called off after the EU got involved.

    I wonder…if the Boche might be flexing their muscles here.

  3. “Before the 2016 Brexit referendum, finance chiefs warned that clearing was bound to be lost along with as many as 232,000 jobs in the City.”
    Am I the only one who finds that claim ludicrous?

  4. Journalists love to say that XYZ “controls” the market in Whatevers, as in M&S controls 5% of the Cambridgeshire market in moussaka.

    I assume they never pause to wonder just what they mean by “control”.

  5. Much of the county could be taken over by little green men from the planet Zog, too.

    Either of these events is as likely as the other.

  6. @CJNerd: You mean the natural basin that’s notorious for not doing much of anything in the way of flood control because it’d Hurt the Froggies?
    That Cambridgeshire?

    You’re certainly not alone. But friends who still work in the City tell me that in 2016 they had made plans (since shelved) for moving large areas of back office work into the EU. So somebody fairly high up must really have believed in it.

  8. Bloke in Wales:
    “Much of [Cambridgeshire] could be taken over by little green men from the planet Zog, too.

    Either of these events is as likely as the other.”

    Actually much of Cambridgeshire has been taken over by little green Liberal Democrats, who might as well be from the planet Zog.

    And, if you read that story beyond the headline, they are not saying Cambridgeshire could be inundated in 10 years- they are saying it will.

    If they are right, I will find myself living on an 8-mile-long island, along with Richard Murphy. I have no plans to buy a boat.

    I have saved that Cambridgeshire Live web page so I can have some fun in 2031.

    “@CJNerd: You mean the natural basin that’s notorious for not doing much of anything in the way of flood control because it’d Hurt the Froggies?

    Actually, the Fens of Cambridgeshire have pretty good flood control, dating back to the work of Dutch engineers in the 1630s.

    Are you maybe thinking of the Somerset Levels?

  10. From the Fens wiki link: “The Fens today are protected by 60 miles (97 km) of embankments defending against the sea and 96 miles (154 km) of river embankments. Eleven internal drainage board (IDB) groups maintain 286 pumping stations and 3,800 miles (6,100 km) of watercourses”

    Might as well have nothing at all..

  11. I was thinking too do they mean the Cambridge that is in or by a Fen that has been there for a very long time indeed
