I put this graphic together a long time ago when the Euro looked on the verge of collapse.  I’m sure most people suffered one way or another from the effects of the “financial crisis”….

I personally lost circa 75k Sterling from my Pension Fund. Not just that but the private pension I was receiving was reduced by some 50%…. and frankly it has never recovered.

I am now retired and 66 years old, my UK State Pension is…derisory!

It, as well as my Private Pension is paid in Sterling.

I’m no Actuary ( which in my personal view is a futile discipline, in today’s world as it is reliant on forecasting ! Ha! )

One-one needs to be a forecaster to realise that your disposable income has halved ! and is forecast to slide further! unless, of course that you are in a position to twiddle with the LIBOR rates, benefit from insider know-how or are in control of a Bank.

So, the graphic may not hold water as a vision at this moment in time… or does it?

I slogged my guts out for 30 years employing 100s of people, the National Insurance contributions, both as an employee ( of my own companies ) and as an employer, as a Director, Partner and Sole Trader.

My Pensions are  as useful now as an ashtray on a motorbike!

And whilst I could never have been a Politician, my understanding is that part of this purported #BREXIT Divorce settlement, the UK tax Payer ( which I may well have to become, again as well as my kids  ( thanks to two arrogant egotists ) will be shelling out for MEPs Pensions for generations to come!

Am I right?

Well that’s the way it works then so-be-it… but who is going to recompense me?

I have joined this FaceBook group… Called British in Europe.

Tunnel Vision:

I never even felt “Continental” when we were on the continent, how far IS that landmass away?… 20 odd miles, as the seagull flies, or the goose-fat loaded charity-swimmer swims?

We are, of course, connected by a great hole…a tube, a tunnel…this French operated investment-pipe is being re-branded at a cost of over a million, it seems.

Chunnel does’t work, does it?” they must have thought.

If only that the portmanteau of Tunnel and Channel only uses the bit of the word Channel..to the French the Straight of Dover is La Manche..meaning sleeve!…Ärmelkanal..German Ocean… makes no odds, but GETLINK…quoi? I guess they must have thought Migrant Escape Highway was too wordy?

Getlink!….Sounds like a bunch of Scousers doing the Mexican wave to me.

The French see the aperture as a Pipe… ( leaves a nasty taste in the mouth does that! )

I mean: “Ceci n’est pas une pipe !!!”  too surreal for me!

So, GET LINK, you can put that in your pipe and smoke it!
