Leave.EU moves to Ireland to keep .EU suffix

Pro-Brexit lobby Leave.EU has been revealed to have migrated its domain’s registrant address to Waterford in the Republic of Ireland in order to remain in the EU registry.
One person tweeted “Wow, the irony! Leave .EU actively seeking to stay in the EU”, while others pointed out that Jacob Rees-Mogg’s firm is also among those to have set up premises in Ireland to hedge against the “considerable uncertainty” that Brexit may bring.
Bwahhh Ha Ha!!!! Leave dot EU's webshite has now gone offline after the Irish registrar seized the domain name! :lol:

FTR Mr Richmond was the politician whom asked the IE domain registry to have the domain name investigated. Seems like the Waterford address did not meet the criteria for ownership of an .eu domain name.

Mississippi is one of the largest recipients of federal fiscal transfers. Carswell will have lots of thoughtless brain farts to free the state from Washington subsidies. At least he bagged a Stateside gig unlike Farage.
This is Carswell's new employer.

Revenues not very high, unless they've shot up in the last few years. Even in Mississippi, there ought to be more wingnut welfare going. This doesn't look like a plum posting for one of the "architects of Brexit", unless he's planning to become American and start working his way through Mississippi state politics.

Hilariously, he's landed himself in a strongly Democrat part of the state.

Maybe "Project Fear" wasn't so fanciful after all.

An interesting piece on the first (nearly) three weeks of Brexit.

The good news is Johnson appears to be shedding fans at an amazing rate.

Haven't seen much evidence of the PM's demise as Tory numbers are still holding up. Not ready to share Polly's optimism either. It will be everyone else's fault in the mind of Brexiters for some time yet.
