So what do we do? Personally i’d quite like to get a say in what happens our assets that we own that he bought us with our money. Like a bold child robbing money out of his mam’s purse to buy sweets. Multiplied by €455 million. Therefore punishment also = Naughty step multiplied by 455million.
It’s nothing to joke about but it’s a difficult situation to get my head around. As a non violent person.
