A lot of the Tories are prepared to fight back in case of a No Deal. Making the UK economy a low tariff economy would practically equal a trade war with the EU. Cause it will draw a lot of business from the EU. Some Remainers just keep believing in the EUSSR project, even Corbyn's hand was forced by the rest of Labour today to announce that he will support the Second Referendum, in which they hope to reverse the result of the First one. But this will lead to the Far Right rising here and riots and the rest. So it is a very risky thing to do in this country.
You are welcome. But the short term disruption and chaos will be there in case of a No Deal of course. May is a Remainer at heart, not a Brexiteer, she voted Remain. But she is also hungry for power, she wants to stay in power — politics is everything for her, she has never had any kids, she is a right weirdo to be honest. The only way she can stay in power is to keep the Tory Party together. And in the Tory Party — there are two gangs also — Remainers and Leavers. The Leavers all left her Cabinet last summer gone(remember Johnson resigning, etc.), the only one left there out of Brexiteers is Gove, who is also a snake — used to be a Leaver, now switched over to be a Remainer. It is all so sick to be honest. But the ERG group (this is Mogg's group) is a very large and powerful group in Parliament, so if she doesn't have them on board — her deal will fall. They don't want her to rule out NO Deal. On the other hand, her Remainer Cabinet are threatening resignations cause they want the NO deal to be ruled out. She is continuing to be Theresa the Appeaser to both camps. Brussels is not budging on the back stop issue, cause they know she is a weak PM who does not command leadership in her own Party. So it is all shambles at the moment. Have a nice evening).
P. S. It seems to me there are two camps here like in the US — the globalist camp and the anti globalist camp, both are the elites and they are fighting each other. It is very similar there with Trump, just the British version of it over here.
I am allright, just very tired. I started my new job on Monday, it is quite exhausting. I have to get involved in a lot of legal stuff and compliance, etc. I only just realised how lucky I was before. My manager who left — used to let me do whatever l liked pretty much — I used to take long lunches during the day and run in the park, he would let me go off early sometimes in the week, etc. — all paid. I knew basic compliance, etc. — but didn't have to do all the massive legal staff that went with it — he did all that himself. I mean — compliance is crazy in this country. If anyone transfers you more than £5K for example — you have to investigate the source of funds, etc. (whether it is legitimate) — that puts some people off, so you have to still go out of your way to keep the deal on the go whilst doing all that shit — it is a long story. It is a rule upon a rule upon a rule — it is truly crazy — Anti Money Laundering legislation, due diligence, etc. Anyways, it has been quite stressful and challenging, but it is OK. Also, I don't think I am earning as much as he used to (I have an idea of what he used to earn, we were and still are good friends, I phone him a lot still — even whilst at work — asking him for advice, which I am not supposed to do really to be honest — but I don't name names, I just ask for general kind of advice). I told you it was a massive increase in salary, but it wasn't that massive and a lot of it is gonna be eaten by income tax. Tomorrow we are going for a Champaign reception and lunch at one of the top London hotels hosted by one Saudi Arabian client, he is a sheikh of some sort, the final deal was signed today. This is the deal my manager who left — had worked on for months prior to leaving and now we are going to rip off the fruits of his labour and everyone is gonna go and celebrate in the pubs and clubs after. I don't feel like doing it to be honest. Anyway, whatever happened- happened. I have to move on, still finding it a bit hard.

Well, you know — in his and my case the difference is justified. I spent 9 years staying with my kids whilst he was developing his career. People like him — they come into any investment business with valuable connections. Once they leave — any business loses with them, cause those connections follow them after (like this sheikh after tomorrow will follow my manager and he doesn't care what the company he is working for now is called, it is just the way it is — in private customer investment businesses. It is a bit different with institutional investors — banks, pension funds, etc - this is my husband's area of work). Someone like me cannot offer anything like he could offer at the moment. You know — a business can have wonderful back office accountants and whiz IT people and that — but ultimately — it is those star brokers (well, financial advisors/ consultants — whatever the fancy name of the day, the essence is the same — front line brokerage) that keeps all the back office people in their jobs and brings the proper money to any such business.

Our laws mostly work in this country, in the countries like Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, etc. — all the money laundering activities (placement, layering, integration) — they happen before the money enters into the international financial system, before it comes to London. It is already «legitimately» integrated in the country of origin before it hits our markets. Unless there are some politically imposed financial sanctions, they are imposed against PEPs (Politically Exposed Persons), but they are few and far between and even them — they can invest through third parties, and the sources will not be traceable. It is a long long subject and I am sick of it to be honest. Grin (25771) wrote in reply to post:

It won't. It will get harder before it gets easier. Some people in the company blame my manager — they tell me now he didn't train me properly, wanted to keep me down and saw me as a threat. I don't believe all that shit. I was much happier then — than I am now. Anyway, it will get better one way or another.
Thank you anyway for cheering me up, how are you? Let's not talk about work anymore. EVER.

Yeah, I remember «8-е Марта» — Women's Day. They recognize it here as well as the International Women's Day, but it is not celebrated generally, most people have never heard of it and there is no day off. But on the telly there are a lot of feministic discussions, it is like the field day for those organisations, that dedicated themselves to the eternal fight for women's rights. Nothing romantic and lovely — like in Russia.

To be honest feminists try to do the same stuff here as well, but nobody takes them seriously in Russia
