"The Home Office has hailed the new blue passport as the most technologically advanced passport it’s ever produced, as you might expect of a document that’s been commissioned from a Franco-Dutch company which is getting the passports printed in Poland. Is there a tariff on passports imported from the EU? The Home Office hasn’t said. It would be an appropriate irony if the new Brexit passport was held up in a long queue of lorries as it was imported into the UK."

Remember that it would take you MORE than 2020 years to get richer than Bezos at the rate of 7000$/hour. Let it sink in for a second.

Make sure that not a cent of your money goes to Amazon at all. Close your account. Everything will be fine. Trust your local shops and retailers. Use your privilege to accept the discomfort of having to shop a bit further, to wait a bit longer for goods that you will buy somewhere else, online or IRL.
