So it is (my interpretation) looking toward either "no deal" or "no Brexit" (UK can cancel the process any moment until April 12th). I sincerely hope we get the latter, for all of us, both in Europe and UK.

As always, I'm excited to keep supporting the fediverse and watching it grow!
Anyone here using vcsh (https://github.com/RichiH/vcsh) for config management/sync?

**Shell maakt wel winst, maar betaalt geen winstbelasting in Nederland**
"Shell betaalt geen winstbelasting in Nederland, terwijl het bedrijf wel degelijk flinke winst maakt. Over de 1,3 miljard euro winst die in 2017 op Nederlandse bodem werd verdiend met onder meer benzinestations en de raffinaderij werd geen cent winstbelasting betaald, met dan…"
