Assay Offices for the certification of silver and gold. You may not be aware that they are privatised industries. They are the oldest standards bodies in the world, weirdly EU hasn’t tried to bring common standard across EU.

But it *has* systematically discriminated in favour of Amsterdam against the UK causing UK Assay Offices to lose 75% of their business in the last 15 years.

British Steel. Yes, it’s a very difficult industry, but what *actually caused it to finally bankrupt* was paying Carbon Credits to Brussels. Strangely, the German dirty brown coal electricity generators seem to be exempt from paying.

There you are, I’ve given you two examples. Previously you hadnt heard of even one.
