What you seem to be advocating, Rob

is a 'nanny' country where ALL income generated is controlled by the Government and handed out to the citizens at their discretion....How'd that work out for Greece, et al?

Ok, let's do that

And they can liquidate all of their business assets and live in the lap of luxury without a care. No more worries about the performance of their business, government regulators, etc. Of course there would be no one to buy them out except for foreigners. Where do you think this would leave those left on the mainland? Very little money and but a handful of jobs....all working for their foreign owners. Yep...that would be peachy. Wink

I had to laugh. I visited the web site but the video was disabled with this message;

"Dear Great Britain,
We're terribly sorry, but full episodes and video clips of
the Colbert Report are not available. But please don't
send any Red Coats in retaliation at this time, as you
can experience the truthiness at FXUK"


I tried http://www.fxuk.com/ . I didn't see the connection.

Ohh well, I've recalled the SAS.
