I find this interesting in that British firms punished by Brexit are now looking Eastward to NYC as a new home, and not Miami or Texas. Please don’t repeat this to our Cretin-In-Chief who rules over the Banana Republic of Florida. Thank-you. See, this might be considered “blog posting” by My Highness, who now wants bloggers who criticize him to register with the State (er, Banana Republic Of) Florida.
That tiny bit of FL news slipped out of me, and it is this story that amuses me to no end as I dropped an old friend from the UK after he went full mental Q Anon/Pro-Brexit&Trump. His argument for Brexit was that once London was re-established on the Pound Sterling, then London would suck NYC firms back to “the City.”
London Dealmakers Say Move to Wall Street From The City Is Just Starting
London’s public companies are looking to New York as a preferable market for listing their shares, with City dealmakers handling frequent inquiries from clients asking how they could shift across the Atlantic.
Just this week, it was revealed that two major companies had picked the US for their main listings ahead of London — CRH Plc, one of Europe’s biggest building materials companies, and Softbank-owned Arm Ltd., a jewel of Britain’s technology industry. It was the latest blow to the UK’s Conservative government which says it’s determined for London to prosper post-Brexit.
One senior banker said a shift in listings away from London has become the most common talking point among companies, and nearly all their clients with main revenue streams outside Britain were considering a move. Even some members of the benchmark FTSE 100 index are thinking about transferring their listings to New York, according to people with knowledge of the matter, who asked not to be identified discussion private information.
Do I print off the whole story and send this anonymously to my ex-friend who lost his freaking mind to conspiracy theories?
Nah, that’s bad mojo. I know that he knows what he said in heated discussions before we dropped one another is now going to eat at him. And that’s a shame because I wish him no mental harm.
I sure hope he wakes up one day and realizes 5G Towers were not disseminating COVID. That thought right there is the one which broke my mind and made me think, “He’s a time sink. I can’t waste any more time trying to bring him back. He’s gone.”
I also hope the Watkins family behind QAnon befall a major calamity that puts them behind bars for all the minds they helped destroy.
