Tax is a private situation.

"Please explain how no-deal will “build … a more harmonious relationship with our European friends”?"

There is no such thing as "no deal". The WTO is a unilateral based trading deal that all countries use.

We do not deal with European friends, instead we deal with the EU. When we are not under the threat of fines, factored on GDP, for daring to disagree then it will be more harmonious.

Imagine the relationship when person walks into a shop with a gun and asks for money. That makes a very clear and constrained relationship. You might call that harmonious. If a person walks in to a shop and offers money for a product then that is what I call harmonious and mutuality beneficial.

Also when they determine who pays the interest on the borrowing.

The cost is disproportionate to the help it gives. Boris is right the current blame game system does not help. It is so dragged out that their lives are damaged further. If all the money to lawyers went to the families it would be better.

Ask why Prohibition existed.

The full quote "That trend was unintentionally reversed by the efforts of the Prohibition movement. The homicide rate in large cities increased from 5.6 per 100,000 population during the first decade of the century to 8.4 during the second decade when the Harrison Narcotics Act, a wave of state alcohol prohibitions, and World War I alcohol restrictions were enacted. The homicide rate increased to 10 per 100,000 population during the 1920s, a 78 percent increase over the pre-Prohibition period."

The rate of crime was increasing before 1920. Cato blames the other prohibition attempts. Then compares the crime rate to 10 years before the start. The increase was a steady progression. As I state it has nothing to do with the substance but with the ability, and want of people to get ahead illegally.

Further quote: " It led many drinkers to switch to opium, marijuana, patent medicines, cocaine, and other dangerous substances that they would have been unlikely to encounter in the absence of Prohibition."

That is not the reason. See your comment above for the reason.

I have had a wonderful life. Not many people get to sail around the world. My mistake was coming back to the UK. It is hell.

Drinking is sociable and loosens inhibitions so that barriers are broken down. It used to be given each night to NHS patients and was far more effective than medicines for a nights sleep. They got a bottle of stout.

As far as I know alcohol only poisons the mind, which reduces functionality. Long term use obviously leaves effects but so does long term exhaustion and stress.

But I was. I also believe you have said that before. I have always said it from the day of the referendum.

That is why I researched WTO and the effect it has has on the world and its stability.

I began valuing the EU but with us outside as a competitive stabilising counter balance. But after long days on here, against a number of pro-EU people, I have now formed the opinion that the EU is not worth saving. There is a better solution.

Look in a mirror. Making up stories to malign is far worse. It is a UK disease.
