Brexit LIVE: Major insurance firm moves from UK to France after Macron charms big business

Both Chubb European Group SE and ACE Europe Life SE now operate under the supervision of the French regulator ACPR.

But both entities will continue to be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK.
Which surely means that they will pay Corporation tax in France, not the UK. Thanks Brexiters.

BREXIT LIVE: Ireland GLOATS as it HOOVERS UP investment after UK-based firms JUMP SHIP

IRELAND’s Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has charmed an eye-watering 55 investments from firms which jumped ship in the aftermath of Brexit, it has been revealed.
Well what did Brexiters expect to happen?
The draft EU Withdrawal Agreement flies in the face of Government commitments on Northern Ireland, DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds has said following a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May.

He said: “The Irish Republic's 'no deal' preparations published just before Christmas have laid bare the nonsense propaganda about a hard border. No-one wants a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.
Nobody apart from 17.4 million Brexiters. How often has May said it's about controlling our borders?

You know what they expected to happen. They expected Ireland to stand aside and let us sign all the deals we like, because Ireland isn't a proper country; it still needs us close by to look after it.

All aboard Chris Grayling’s Brexit pizza ferry – what could possibly go wrong?
James Felton
Having got up to speed on GCSE geography and a quick “humans need food to live” biology recap, the cabinet realised they’d have to have boats on standby if we’re going to continue to eat.

To this unimportant task they assigned their best and brightest: Chris Grayling, a man you’d supervise if you saw him attempting to use scissors.

Fleet Street Fox has a similar opinion:
A man with the body of Donald Trump and the IQ of a roll of Sellotape, seeing him in a hi-vis jacket is as much reason to despair as spotting lumps in the groin: a sure sign that something is amiss.

From Carillion to the criminal justice system, from the welfare state to the prison service, and to Gatwick Airport by way of London Bridge, there's nothing Grayling has touched and not cocked up.

This looks like a good thread. Clarifies a few things for me- I'd bit your hand off for "Norway plus customs union" from where we are. If he's right and May's deal doesn't stand in the way of that, then I'd have to think very seriously about voting for it, if Remain was definitely gone.

Which is why the I feel the only option is to vote for May's deal.
