Yet Another Prominent Brexit Supporter Leaves UK

Britain's richest man, Jim Ratcliffe, joins other Brexit patriots like James Dyson (moved company to Singapore), John Redwood (advised investors to put money abroad), Jacob Rees-Mogg (firm opens funds in Dublin) and Nigel Lawson (seeking French residency) in showing their support in the Brexit they support by protecting themselves and their money in the Brxit storm that is coming.
I think it is fair to say that Brexiteers in their dim and slow way, are realising that as we lurch towards the March 29th deadline, Brexit is turning out to be very different to what they were promised two years ago.
The fact that so many of its prominent supporters are either leaving the UK, or making plans to leave, shows that rather than the UK prospering after Brexit as they said, they aren't sticking around when the brown stuff hits the fan.
It is also telling that the people who are shouting the loudest about how Brexit is a good thing, such as Lord Ashcroft, James Dyson, Louise Mensch, Lord Lawson, Richard Littlejohn and Rupert Murdoch all love Britain so much that they choose to live in other countries.
That the racists who read the line 'Leave The EU' as kicking all the foreigners out of the UK' look to be disappointed as freedom of movement seems to be an EU red line for any deal so they will still be bothered by brown faces in their communities as well as making us all poorer.
