PostSubject: UK Being SUed By European Union Because We Failed to Sue Volkswagen   Thu Dec 08, 2016 3:47 pm

The World is being stood on its head.

The UK is being sued by the European Union for failing to sue VW for damages over the emissions scandal. They are clearly miffed because the USA did - and were awarded huge damages.

It does raise the question though - why didn't we?  We could do with a bit more cash in our tin and if it drove VW into extinction so what.

Having posed the question - I guess I know the answer - the EU looks after its own and it would be political suicide for us to sue VW - we would need to wait until after Brexit

Several other nations including Germany and Luxembourg are also being sued.  AS I said the sooner we can get out of this ABSOBLOODYLUTELYRIDICULOUS club the better.  Anyone who says different needs their head examining too.

Have you looked in the mirror lately - I think you need your head examining - it's shrinking up top.

I have given up on Specsavers - our branch is manned by young Asians fresh out of basic training. My doctor advised me to go to a proper opticians for my annual diabetes eye retinoscopy because of problems with them.

Our private opticians are excellent and their prices are not all that much more than Specsavers.
