Never thought I'd see the day

Forbidding commercial activities like this is such a wrong way to go. Who will ever set up their hi-tech startup in this country again?

Look, Boris ducky, if nobody in the country can attract the necessary investor confidence, then at least allow the current crowd of deadheads to cream off some hard foreign cash and invest in what they /do/ understand. Or, if UK Gov really cannot afford to lose it, then nationalise it and be damned, like you did to Southeastern Trains. Just don't expect feckin' tickboxes to bail you out.

Sheesh! Never thought I'd live to see the day our diehard capitalists would end up pissing into the wind like this. And me a right bloody patriot, too.
