The Bank of America announced Friday that Dublin will be the new base for its European Union operations following Britain’s decision last year to split from the EU. Brian Moynihan, CEO of the Charlotte-based bank, made the announcement during a trip to the Irish capital city. It becomes the latest large U.S. bank in recent weeks to disclose plans for continuing to serve clients in EU countries following the so-called Brexit vote in 2016. Read full article

    The Guardian reports that the UK is 'Fast becoming the sick man of Europe' ... rexit-data
    Their original source is a gloomy report from the IMF. What the Guardian don't say is that economic growth of 1.7%, as forecast, is higher than France (1.5%) and Italy (1.3%). 'Germany is forecast to grow 1.8%, just 0.1% more than Britain – which is forecast to be in the middle of the G7 performance table. The supposedly burgeoning Euro area has a 1.9% growth forecast, described as “solid” by the IMF. That is only 0.2% higher than the apparently disastrous UK. And the Eurozone is growing at its slowest pace in six months.' ... ne-rivals/

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?

    I see that you are using 100% of your brain “power” to continually post two childish messages.
