We may have thought the election was about economic strategy, or the NHS and education, turns out it’s become about the very fabric of our society. Good.
One question, then, has to be whether a PR system would deliver better government than the current system. It’s likely that given the way FPTP has delivered a majority government with only around a third of voters that most would worry that it’s not fair.

Great article - I agree with this.....

"Success therefore, depends on whether those responsible for the strategy, and those responsible for its execution, can do their jobs. In simple terms, can they do what they are asked to do, when they are asked to do it?

Here are some EU guidance notes:

At the top of page 29 they make clear that the VAT'able party is the one that will typically own the customer data, That's important because if you seek to use a third party to deliver the product, then you can only avoid reporting via MOSS, if you also don't own the customer.

That's a change of business model for most small businesses using digital products for lead generation and pipeline/customer support, 

it's not the end of the world, but it does require a different approach to marketing the non digital services using digital services in the chain.
