It already has. Some once good friends no longer speak to me because they are Remainers. You are the only Remainer who still does! If this counts as speaking.

The US sales tax is as complex as VAT. Say nothing about their income tax! I work with many US immigrants, I know how much more complex their tax system is from ours.

I love the US system of online payment...you fill in details online and the bank prints out a physical cheque which they then post!
