Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Britain's richest person to leave UK for tax-free Monaco
Britain's richest person is quitting the UK for Monaco - just two months after he was knighted by the Queen for "services to business and investment".

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the founder and chief executive of petrochemicals company Ineos and a high-profile Brexiter, is preparing to move to the tax-free principality on the Côte d'Azur in order to avoid UK taxes on his vast wealth. His fortune is estimated at £21bn.


In the run-up to the Brexit referendum, Ratcliffe provided a fillip for the Leave campaign when he said Britain would thrive outside the EU.

In the aftermath of the vote he urged the government to adopt a tough approach to exit negotiations: "We must listen, we must be unwaveringly polite and retain our charm. But there is no room for weakness or crumpling at 3am when the going gets tough and most points are won or lost."

all the leave rats abandoning ship

Redwood is advising his investors to avoid UK companies
Rees-Mogg has moved his businesses to Ireland
Lawson is applying for French residence
Farage is applying for a german passport
Aaron Banks has allegedly already got his Russian passport
No doubt Boris Johnston (who had to renounce his joint US citizenship) will re-discover his trans-Alantic roots, as will Gove.
I'm sure Liam Fox will try but I suspect he will end up in the far East as filth (Failed In London, Try Hong Kong).
