The greedy, beady eyes of the communists

The Times is a pain in the neck Murdoch outlet and behind a paywall but occasionally that can be breached:

Brussels is ready to punish Switzerland by blocking its access to Europe’s financial services market as a warning to Britain that the EU will not compromise on Brexit.

Unless Switzerland agrees to sign up to a draft EU partnership treaty, Swiss stock exchanges will lose direct access to European investors on July 1.

The move to freeze Switzerland, a non-EU country, out of Europe’s single market is being interpreted as a message intended for a new Conservative prime minister. In a note to his colleagues, Johannes Hahn, the Austrian commissioner responsible for the Swiss talks, warned that making an example of Switzerland was necessary to make a bigger political point to Britain.

“We simply cannot accept any further attempts of foot dragging and watering down…

The Crown itself, plus the ill-gotten Templar wealth in Scotland?  The global communists have had their greedy, beady eyes on the City for a long, long time, plus Scotland and though this land of ours is but one in the attempt of these cuckoos in the nest to take all and enslave a continent while they gorge themselves, it’s not going to work, not because of any grand resistance movement but because it is opposed by those equally as greedy.

I hope Switzerland stands firm and perhaps seeks new allies – might we say the US and a revamped UK?

    Economics 101. Why would EU investors send their money to Switzerland rather than invest it locally? Could it be because they get a better deal by investing in Switzerland? Could it be despite getting a worse deal in Switzerland?

    This EU initiative will make EU investors poorer. Great. It hastens the day of the EU’s collapse – maybe.

    I’m keeping my ill-gotten Templar wealth so you can all sod off.

    The EU will probably implode of its own accord.

    It’s gunboats in their ports time! Who says we can’t have another European war?
