Should I say that I'm from Austria?
Just had a look at the sources you posted and I don't think they are trustworthy (that doesn't mean that the story with the 600k in Krugs could not be right anyways...)
The UK should team up with the USA and show the other EU members how it could work. So we might get rid of the EU in it's current form...
Ordering from US dealers without/with low import duties would open new possibilities
