Enemy state (AKA the EU) operating on U.K. soil

Recommended Posts

The European commission raided the offices of a number of TV companies across Europe – including Fox and Ziggo Sport, the Dutch subsidiary owned by Vodafone, and the Virgin Media parent Liberty Global – early on Tuesday over concerns that they could “have violated EU antitrust rules that prohibit cartels and restrictive business practices”.

No problem with this.

If the E.U limited itself to this sort of stuff rather than bringing in 3rdworlders id be v happy.

For me, it’s about jurisdiction.  What right do the eu have in car4ying out raids on U.K. soil?

      The story in the link below is a little short on detail but it's been expanded upon on the radio.
      This applies from 2022, rather than some kick down the road 2040 date as for EVs, so it looks like it's going to happen.
      The limiter is also going to be an "intelligent" limiter which will work on the speed limit of your road. You know those dot matrix signs on motorways where they leave up the 50mph limit for hours after any accident so you ignore them if the road is obviously clear: ignoring is no longer an option.
      I'm not a great speeder myself but have a powerful car which lets me get past slow moving vehicles which usually involves speeding for the overtake and that won't be possible.
      I know it's the EU but you can guarantee the UK will bring it in as well.
      Anyone else see there being a huge premium on current, unlimited, fast cars in the future?

      A bloke at work was telling me that all new cars come with a cellphone link and GPS (whether you have GPS or not) and the govt can track exactly where your car is all the time. Apparently it is some EU wide requirement.
      Is this #fakenews?
