Hilarious post, but you're running from the truth.

Call it what you want, but there are real quotes from real people in the sport of GP on the subject of Rossi and the preferential treatment he has recieved throughout his career. Again, im shocked he didnt win more than he did. Machine and tire advantages against mediocre competition. The true Rossi is the one with 2-3 wins a year, fighting for championships on consistency, and ultimately choking when things get tight.

No matter what the tire, it will always favor some riders over others controlled or not.

So what? Some tracks favor some riders over others. The control tires aren't made for any rider in particular, some riders are just better at adapting to them than others.

For what it is worth given I observed events from a distance of 12,000 miles, imo as others have said some or even many who voted to leave did so for not very valid reasons, such as a la recherche du temps perdu and racism, and the exploitation of same for individual political ends by a politician who did not even necessarily want Britain to leave the EU himself.

Like others I can see valid reasons as well, chief among them EU bureaucrats unelected by the British populace and not answerable to them having the power to make decisions which affect them. The UK unlike Germany is small in land area and already closely settled. The EU is also a very different beast to when the UK joined, and seems disposed to continue to expand indefinitely, regardless of whether nations wishing to join are solvent or make fraudulent representations. The EU also primarily works for Germany's benefit, giving that nation assured markets and keeping their currency much undervalued compared to what it would be if there was still a Deutsche Mark, again helping German exports. I suspect being in the EU may still have been to the UK's overall economic benefit though, particularly going forward.

It would definitely have been beneficial to stay in financially in the immediate future. However looking further forward Britain can do better trading unshackled. We also need to address the issue of a population of a city the size of Newcastle arriving yearly , the benefits system and NHS just cannot cope, neither can we build housing fast enough.
